Quality Systems & Approvals

MSA Manufacturing is an LRQA ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accredited manufacturer, offering customers full traceability of materials and parts.

Extensive investments in quality assurance related processes, training and equipment, including optical quality inspection systems, have been made across the business, covering manufactured products, digital engineering and the supply chain services provided to customers.

Surface scanning technology is used by MSA as part of the quality control process to check parts post-machining; measurements from scanned parts are referenced back to a customer supplied CAD model or in-house reverse engineered CAD file to ensure that the final machined components being supplied have been made to the correct specifications.
