Materials and welding

Focusing on quality, from metals to welding.

Certification from LR sets you apart from the competition.


Traceable materials, qualified welders. We bring value to your supply chain.

With the traceability of materials becoming a major industry concern, we can bring the assurance you need, through to the qualifications of the welders who join that material.

Our value lies in our experience and reputation for quality inspection. We were there as shipbuilders went from using wood to iron and steel. Today we inspect that steel and qualify the welders and welding procedures that fabricators use to weld safety-critical equipment and structures.
