Quality System

Ultra Electronics, Energy is committed to promoting and continually reinforcing a robust culture of Safety and Quality throughout the business.

The first of our core values is “Safety Above All Else”.  Safety is our first priority in everything we do.  We believe that where safety leads, quality and performance will follow.

This strong culture is underpinned by accreditation to some of the world’s most stringent quality standards.  Every site within the Ultra Electronics, Energy business has a robust Quality Management System that is accredited to either ISO9001:2015 or AS9100 Rev D as a minimum.

Our Quality Policy

It is the policy of Ultra Electronics, Energy to maintain an effective Quality Program in order to provide products and services that meet and exceed customers requirements, in conformity with regulatory requirements, internationally recognized quality standards and industry accepted practices.

Ultra Electronic, Energy’s commitment to continuous improvement will insure achievement of the goals and objectives as reflected in our Mission, Strategy and LEAP Behaviors.

In addition, each site has a variety of core and specialist capabilities, some of which are accredited to other specialist standards.

Whilst some of our accreditations are specific to individual sites within the business, we have the flexibility to bring together cross-site expertise to enable compliance with the following standards and accreditations to meet the specific needs of your project, as displayed in the Accreditations page.

Additionally, at our facility in Round Rock, Texas USA, we maintain an on-site National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) traceable Metrology Laboratory that provides comparison temperature calibrations from -196 °C to 700 °C (-320 °F to 1292 °F) on the International Temperature Scale of 1990 (ITS-90) for temperature sensors and instrumentation. We can also perform relative calibrations at the boiling point of liquid nitrogen.

The Metrology Laboratory is accredited by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), which meets the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2005 General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories, ANSI/NCSL Z540-1-1994 Calibration Laboratories and Measuring and Test Equipment—General Requirements, and ASTM E644 – 11  Standard Test Methods for Testing Industrial Resistance Thermometers. Because the A2LA has mutual recognition arrangements with other global laboratory accreditation systems, test and calibration data from the Metrology Laboratory is accepted in most countries of the world.
