Findon-based AMC Engineering Ltd is ending the year on a high note after securing another industry certification.
The international torque equipment specialists have been awarded the OSHAS18001 certification, an internationally recognised assessment specification for occupational health and safety management systems. This award complements the ISO 9001:2008 certification achieved in September 2010.
Work on gaining the certifications was spearheaded by QHSE manager Bruce Nicol who was appointed earlier this year, initially as QA manager but now adding HSE to his remit.
Originally from Aberchirder near Huntly in Aberdeenshire, Bruce Nicol spent 38 years in the RAF and held a variety of engineering roles in fields such as radio, communication, IT and radar. His work in QA began in 1988 and he has controlled Quality Management Systems on a wide range of engineering facilities including mechanical, electrical and electronic disciplines in worldwide locations. He was also health and safety officer at RAF Buchan, Peterhead at the turn of the century.
Based latterly at RAF Leuchars in Fife, Bruce spent time in the Falkland Islands shortly after the conflict there in the 1980s, and served in the first Gulf War during which he was based in Saudi Arabia.
AMC Engineering Ltd was established in 1988 and supplies major oil and gas service companies across the world in the bespoke design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of market leading torque equipment and associated products. Key Global markets include Africa, North and South America, Canada, Europe, the Far East, Middle East and Russia. The company recently announced that it has completed manufacture of the world’s largest Fully Rotational Torque unit for the Brazilian market in a project worth more than £600,000.
AMC Engineering Ltd recently announced turnover in excess of £14million and has opened the AMC Torque Solutions Inc Houston service hub.
AMC Engineering Ltd managing director Andrew Polson said: “After a long time adhering to our own internal QHSE procedures, we made the decision earlier this year to have our work rubber stamped and made official by the BSI and we are delighted to have received these registrations.”
“During the past six months alone, the growth of the company has led to the recruitment of more than 25 new personnel, including Bruce, and we look forward to his ongoing input as the company continues to move forward.
