Inspection & Quality

Inspection Department

Quality is central to everything we do here at Thomas Brown Engineering.

Each and every team member has a responsibility to ensure our service and manufactured parts are of the quality our customers have come to expect. To this end we have a dedicated inspection department, led by our Head of Quality, Kris and aided by our quality inspector, Tomasz. All our workforce are trained to ensure that our service offers the very best quality to our customers and adheres to our quality standards AS9100 rev D and ISO9001:2015.

Quality is something we seek to continuously improve upon. We have recently secured a place on the progressive NMCL programme designed to improve competitiveness and growth. The NMCL Programme has been designed by SMMT, who represent businesses in the automotive sector and ADS, who represent businesses operating in the aerospace, defence, security & space sectors. The aim of the programme is to develop a national, best practice approach to improve competitiveness, improve workforce capability, grow productivity and boost economic growth. We hope that the training, mentoring and coaching supplied by this government funded programme will further develop the capability of our team and enhance some of our internal procedures which will benefit our customers and ultimately aid our growth.
