Quality Control

Bristol Steel's Quality Control System Overview

Each Plant has a full time Quality Control Person that reports only to each shop Manager respectively.

Each manufactured piece of steel is checked at the end of every process to ensure the following:

  • Each piece is dimensionally correct
  • Each piece has appropriate finish
  • Each piece welds match the quantity, type and length shown on the engineered drawings, and has been stamped with the welder’s initials

All paint matches engineered prints and has been applied to the mil thickness required per the specification and paint manufacturers recommendations.
