Welding Inspection Saltash

Specialists in testing of metal fabrications by NON DESTRUCTIVE MEANS - With over 30 years experience!

Savage Inspection Services Ltd (SIS) was founded by the Director, Richard Savage, who is a qualified NDT Engineer with 30 years experience. Richard undertook a Shipbuilding Apprenticeship in Devonport Dockyard in the 1970's, subsequently qualifying as an NDT Engineer before leaving the Dockyard to set up his own business in 1988.

The company's services are the non-destructive testing of materials, welds and components, ultrasonic thickness surveys of ships and other items such as storage tanks and the witnessing for approval of welding procedures and welder qualifications.

These are provided, using qualified and experienced staff, by the processes of Radiography, Ultrasonics, Magnetic Particle and Dye Penetrant means. Mechanical testing of weld procedure test pieces falls outside of the facilities of the company and is subcontracted to a specialist UKAS approved Mechanical Testing Facility.

We operate from a modern commercial unit on one site in the town of Saltash in the county of Cornwall. This is conveniently situated adjacent to the A38 into Cornwall, and close to Plymouth and the Devon Expressway/M5 motorway.

The company is currently working towards accreditation to BS EN ISO/IEC 17020.

All the work can be performed to meet the requirements of British Standards, Ship Classification Society Rules, or any other specifications deemed appropriate.
