All Metal Services’ quality management system has a proud history of being accredited by BSI since 1983. All sites in the UK, Europe and Asia hold ISO 9001:2015 and AS9120 approval, with the Bolton and Avonmouth sites also holding the extra approval of AS9100.
We maintain and value the relationships we hold with our certification body, and develop similar partnerships with our suppliers and customers to build a strong system of metal supply. Quality and delivery performance are monitored and measured to ensure the best possible service to our valued customers.
Procedures are regularly reviewed through the internal audit program and improved by dedicated teams using quality tools. We have implemented a company-supported programme of training and continual improvement, both from AMS and our parent company, Reliance Steel and Aluminum Co.
AMS’s business is largely in aerospace, space and defence and we have unrivalled knowledge and experience in these industries. As certain types of our materials are best suited for military or dual-use applications, our team is trained to apply HMRC export licensing requirements, and to recognise embargoed nations and potential counterfeit material. All required licences to export our standard products are currently held. For bespoke items, these can be applied for in the short term.
All aerospace material is fully traceable back to the manufacturing mill and is identified and certified in accordance with specification requirements. In-house hardness and conductivity testing can be performed at selected sites if required.
