Nuclear Fabrication – new

Strict adherence to quality management standards, employee qualifications and rigorously tested machinery and facilities allow production consistent with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Federally Certified Nuclear Fabrication Company

As a custom metal fabricator serving the nuclear industry with a documented ISO 9001 certified Quality Control program coupled with compliance to NQA-1. We specialize in sizable nuclear steel design fabrication and performance requiring certified welding. Further processing such as close tolerance machining and sophisticated coatings finish the project.

NQA-1 & 10CFR50 Appendix B Compliance

Nuclear Quality Assurance-1 (NQA-1) is a regulatory standard created and maintained by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. This standard provides supplemental contract requirements on implementing requirements of 10CFR50 Appendix B. The 10CFR50 Appendix B contains 18 quality assurance criteria that suppliers to a nuclear facility must adhere to.

The ISO 9000 series was created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as international requirements and guidelines for quality management systems.

ISO 9001:2015 Certification

The ISO 9000 series was created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as international requirements and guidelines for quality management systems (QMS). 

A 3rd party certified audit of the company’s quality management systems must pass standards set by ISO’s Committee on Conformity Assessment for ISO 9001 certification. The ISO 9001 standard is attained when a number of quality management principles with a strong focus on customers, project management, the process approach and continual improvement have been implemented. Having an ISO 9001:2015 certification ensures consistent, good quality products and services.
