Our system and policies help ensure that customers get consistent, top quality products and services.

Certification became mandatory on 1st July 2014, from which time it became illegal to sell fabricated structural steelwork in the UK or the Republic of Ireland that does not carry the CE Mark. CE Marking is not allowed unless the Factory Production Control (FPC) system under which they are produced has been assessed by a suitable certification body that has been approved to the European Commission.
Lochshell Engineering is a fully accredited CE certified company to Execution Class 3. We have recently gained our CE certification having been successful during an audit of our Factory Production Control (FPC) System. We have an in-house Responsible Welding Coordinator (RWC), who, along with our CE manager, ensure all fabrications undertaken are within the requirements of the FPC system and relevant standards.
Lochshell Engineering is an accredited company within the Contractors Health and Safety Scheme, having demonstrated compliance with and sound management of current basic health and safety legislation.
