STS Welding Consultation, LLC serves numerous fabrication, manufacturing, construction and EPC organizations.
One stop for Quality, Welding, NDT, Operational Excellence Consulting and Expert Witness.
We also provide small, medium and large manufacturers and fabrication facilities with total welding program consultation-management and gap analyses to assure they are compliant with industry standards and codes. We do assist organizations for compliance where quality management system elements of ISO 3834 or AWS Certified Welding Fabricator and AISC/ASME, API20G are desired/required to be implemented.
Many of small to medium-sized facilities can benefit from acquiring AWS CERTIFIED WELDING FABRICATOR status, which STS provides complete consulting service to include Quality Manual, SOP’s, WPS’s, work instructions and internal audits to assure this industry Certification is achieved the first attempt. This is an ideal certification for welding fabricators. The AWS Certified Welding Fabricator(CWF) program was specifically designed for welding fabricators to meet industry demands for a program that recognizes companies who can demonstrate they have the resources, procedures, and personnel to apply a quality management system to the welding fabrication activities. In turn, these companies gain a competitive advantage in the market because their customers can trust that the products they have ordered were fabricated under a quality system where an ISO 9001 system may well not achieve this and cost considerably more to implement.
We are unique in the welding, NDT and quality assurance surveillance industry in the fact that we can develop, recommend, review, train and assist with the implementation of complete Quality Assurance and Quality Control Programs for the welding industry in compliance with industry and standard requirements.
