Inspection and Engineering Services Third Party Quality Inspection
Inspection and Engineering Services (IES) is an independent service provider that specialises in providing European welding engineers, auditors and welding, coating and non-destructive testing inspectors as a third party quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) inspection service.

We also provide non-destructive testing services and personnel utilising international standards and the latest inspection technology.
