Hooton Engineering awarded
ISO 1090 for structural steel

Hooton Engineering were delighted to be the first Company ever given the award with zero recomendations for improvement by ISOQAR. That’s what our customers have driven us to achieve.

When we started the journey towards this accreditation back in July 2014 we were told to expect that there would be changes needed to reach the levels required, as that was normal for all applicants. We were very pleased to hear that we had been awarded this standard, and that we were already working to the required levels.  It proves that our staff training is paying off as standards are very high, and that's what our customers have come to expect.

Hooton Engineering is a privately owned UK & international engineering company, offering bespoke engineering solutions. The company has vast experience of installation in plant not only our own, but as mainline installation engineers for several overseas manufacturers, as well as carrying out factory maintenance for a number of blue chip companies.

Latest News

Bob Davidson is delighted to announce that Hooton Engineering Ltd have received another order for a pharmaceutical end user.

“Whilst we are not dealing directly with the Pharmaceutical customers our services have become more recognised as suppliers of excellence” – said Bob Davidson who is now a Director owner of Hooton Engineering Ltd.  Bob has been part of the workforce team at Hooton Engineering Ltd for 42 years, prior to becoming a director owner. 

The investments made in our staff and equipment over the last few years, have proved positively and our quality of workmanship is now being recognised throughout the UK.

Hooton Engineering have been working with Stainless Steel for 50 years, but only recently working to 0.5RA specification. The trick is to look after the material during fabrication and because of that the finish is to a higher standard. 

Since our modernisation programme started in 2011 we are now reaching levels so that 40% of production meets this higher pharmaceutical standard.

Dean Leek, Project Engineer at Depot Rail Limited, handled the design and installation of a sand feeding system for a brand new depot on Dublin’s tram network said...

“Working with Hooton Engineering has been a great experience and everything from first contact with Simon to delivery of the silo has been handled professionally and effectively.  

Last year we had a silo made in France that required us to carry out additional work after delivery but having this silo made by Hooton Engineering in Gainsborough has produced a quality product on schedule and to specification.  

Our customer is delighted with the installation and there should be another silo for the same customer to be delivered during 2017”.

Hooton Engineering is delighted to announce that they have been accepted as a preferred contractor by Tarmac (a CRH Company) for design, fabrication, and installation of steel products for general use, but specifically CE Marked Steel in accordance with BS EN 1090 Exc 2.

Simon Barrett Director of Hooton Engineering Ltd said “ We are pleased that Tarmac Group have acknowledged the investment that has taken place with Hooton Engineering Ltd and have placed us on their exclusive preferred supplier list”

This accreditation allows any company within the CRH group to undertake business with Hooton Engineering Ltd without any further quality checks being required.

Gainsborough traffic was disrupted last week to allow an 8 Tonne, 22m stainless steel fabrication to slowly work its way to the motorway

Andrew Janney, Design Director said “ This has been the culmination of 6 months work in design and fabrication, I am pleased to see that once again we have achieved the deadlines set by our customer and even delivered 1 day early”
