HR Fabrication Case Study
Alcumus ISOQAR Case Studies
HR Fabrication is a Tyne & Wear based family business established in 2009.
The BS EN 1090 certified company employs 13 people and manufactures, supplies and fits structural steelwork, specialising in secondary structural steelwork.
Callum Gray, Project Manager at HR Fabrication, knows the importance of obtaining BS EN 1090 certification. “It demonstrates we can provide our clients with a product that is transparent and traceable,” says Callum. “As an added benefit, by having stricter monitoring processes, we’ve seen an improvement in quality, time management and cost control.”
Many companies are apprehensive about implementing a certified standard, but Callum offers reassurance. “We based it around the principles of ISO 9001 certification, then we tweaked it to ensure we fulfilled the necessary requirements. We then had a 3-month transition period before undergoing our stage 1 audit. This allowed us plenty of time to iron out any issues.”
“The audit was like a breath of fresh air compared to previous experiences.”

HR Fabrication had previously been with another leading certified body. Callum says, “We felt as though we were being overcharged for the service provided. Then, after facing further price increases, we decided to move on.”
Callum continues, “After initial contact with the Alcumus ISOQAR sales team, we swiftly received a proposal that was more aligned with the size and scope of our business. We carried out research into various certification bodies, but after reading testimonials from other Alcumus ISOQAR customers, we secured their services without hesitation.”
Since making the move, HR Fabrication hasn’t looked back. Callum says, “First rate experience so far! Every member of the team we have dealt with, from sales to admin to auditing, has been very easy to deal with. The audit was like a breath of fresh air compared to previous experiences.”
When asked what advice he would offer to other companies who are also thinking about transferring, Callum said, “Make the move! You’ll be employing the services of a practical company, who will definitely put your needs first.”
In summary, Callum commented that Alcumus ISOQAR is clear, concise and professional.
