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.

Continuing with investment in new equipment Hooton Engineering have purchased a Prosaw Bomar Workline Horizontal Bandsaw specifically for use on stainless steel only to ensure even better precision cutting.

We were approached by a new client to construct some aluminium ramped edges specifically designed to allow wheelchair access onto exhibition stands. One of the key points the client wanted was a high tolerance, high quality finish.  

Due to ongoing expansion and a need for quality tradesmen both now and in the future we are pleased to announce an apprentice fabricator and welder has joined the Team.

Before any apprentice is allowed to work on any clients projects they have to complete a test project under supervision. One such test was to copy an existing trailer, this involved drawing plans / design for the trailer, taking accurate measurements, cutting out the metal and welding the metal together.

The trailer is then strength tested, checked and then stripped down and re-built again until the completed test project meets the strict quality control that Hooton works to before any apprentice can actually move on to work on any clients projects under supervison.
