Quality and Inspection

In 1998 Taknia expanded its quality and procurement services and set up the Taknia Inspection Group (TIG) to provide a more specialist quality surveillance and inspection service to supplement our quality assurance service and to provide second and third party inspection services to all our clients.

TIG operates semi-autonomously within Taknia, enjoying full corporate support and access to the technical capabilities provided by our Engineering group from our head office, enabling the provision of professional and rapid technical and inspection solutions to all our clients. TIG also provides its expertise in the execution of our in-house 'EPC' contracts and the activities of our Oil Field Equipment Supply group.

The inspection group is directed from the London office by the Quality Group that has more than three decades of experience in the field of engineering, vendor surveillance/inspection and site inspection. In addition, a pool of highly qualified and experienced inspection specialists throughout Europe and the United Kingdom support this group. All inspectors are selected for their experience and location in order to provide both a fast and economic solution to the Client's requirements.

Whilst Taknia has been approved to BS EN ISO 9001:2000 for a number of years the inspection group was successfully assessed by our accreditation body (SGS Yarsley) and is now included under the umbrella of our current approval.
