In the current economic climate it is more important than ever to use a supplier who produces a product which is guaranteed to be of the highest quality and complies with current legislation in addition to providing excellent value for money.

From 2013, all construction products which includes Mezzanine Floors and Steel Framed Buildings will, by law have to be CE marked. McCanns are well on the way to achieving this CE marking for all of its products, (we already produce CE marked ‘Swingsafe’ Pallet Loading Gates and Goods Lifts), and as a further mark of our commitment to quality, have achieved Welding Procedure Certification and Welder Qualification by six of our fabricators.

McCanns Engineering, the Design and Manufacturing division of McCanns Group, have been awarded the prestigious Welding Procedure Certification to BS EN ISO 15614-1:2004+A2:2012.

The certification has been achieved in the welding of carbon steels of unlimited thickness from 5mm upwards, using MIG-MAG welding techniques.

The procedure and testing was carried out at McCanns Engineering own fabrication facility in Llandovery, Carms.

Six of McCanns fabricators were awarded Welder Qualification in MIG-MAG welding of carbon steels to BS EN 287-1:2011.
