Quality operations diverge
1st December 2016
Increased activity in all areas of Top Tubes has lead to significant changes in the way the Quality Department works.
Quality Engineer Tony Roberts has worked for the company for three years and brought with him a wealth of experience of the tube industry. With over 30 years in the industry including many years as a Test House Supervisor, his experience has covered most sectors of end use from automotive applications to high end, high tensile manufacturing applications.
A second Quality Engineer was appointed to the department in July this year when it was decided to split the core areas of operation.
Steve Pane (pictured in the story above with the new BLM E-BEND 90) who himself has 36 years experience in engineering and manufacturing has taken on responsibility for laser, Metallex and fabrication, whilst Tony is responsible for all ERW operations. Both men share the duties of maintaining and improving Top Tubes operating system and external registrations. The company currently hold ISO 9001 and 14001. Tony and Steve are working towards the new 2015 versions of these standards, building on the excellent legacy of Steve Powell, for many years Top Tubes Quality Engineer.
Top Tubes heavy investment in new machinery and systems and its deep and on-going Quality ethos make it an exciting company to work for.
