Welcome to Prestons Welder Testing

The requirement within industry to carry out welder approval testing is becoming greater all the time. It is no longer just the petro chemical and offshore industries but a far wider range of industries that are now recognising the requirement to have more control over welding operations. This is no more so than in the Constructional Steel Industry for which new legislation requiring welding operatives to be approved, as part of Welding Quality Management systems came into force on 1st July 2014. We also have a number of customers who are required  by their health and safety policy to have some form of approval of their maintenance staff if they do any welding.


For business that have no previous experience in this field, we offer our experience to take away the hassle and provide a cost effective solution to achieve the level of approval they need.


Testing can be carried out in our workshop with all facilities provided, or alternatively in the customers own workshop. This reduces the down time of the welder who may loose only a couple of hours productive time. Using there own equipment in familiar surroundings generally means the welder is more relaxed and it is also a good opportunity to ensure the equipment is up to scratch.  Where practical we can carry out testing on site.
