Quality

Our Commitment to Quality

Product and service quality is of paramount importance to PRG Sheffield. 

Supply of products to the rail industry requires that the most rigorous of controls are in place as many of the products that the company supplies are safety critical and must function in the most testing of environments.

Internal controls are rigid ensuring the highest standards and specifications can be guaranteed.

Those products that are manufactured elsewhere are extensively audited throughout their manufacturing processes and systems. Further testing is carried out at the goods receipt stage for compliance with order instructions. All suppliers are regularly monitored to ensure that the same high standards are maintained.

L.B. Foster Rail Technologies operates a robust, controlled quality system maintaining traceability of products from their initial source of supply, into stock, right through to despatch to the customer.

L.B. Foster Rail Technologies (UK) Ltd operates an ISO 9001-2008 Quality Management System approved by Lloyds Register Quality Assurance.
