Westmoreland Mechanical Testing & Research, Ltd. has made significant advances gaining prestigious quality accreditations. Initially UKAS accreditation was gained in September, 2003 and quickly followed by Nadcap in May, 2004. Nadcap is recognized worldwide and its members include "aerospace primes'" such as Airbus, Honeywell, GE, Rolls-Royce, and Boeing.
WMT&R is accredited in the UK to UKAS ISO/IEC 17025 and Nadcap standards. The latter qualification has enabled us to join a very select group of independent European laboratories with Nadcap accreditation. Our Company plays an active role in Nadcap through its committee representation. We are also proud of our individual OEM approvals, for example General Electric Aircraft Engines, Messier Dowty, Airbus, Goodrich, Mettis Aerospace and Honeywell.
It is the objective of WMT&R to achieve, maintain and consistently operate to a high level of quality in all aspects of the work conducted. The mission is to be recognized by customers as a centre of excellence. Quality is maintained at the highest level through the co-operative efforts of the personnel who are committed to a program of continuous improvement. It is the policy of the laboratory to use a formalised system of quality management at all times.
