RUD Australia’s Brisbane headquarters has received accreditation from the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) for Mechanical Testing in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025. This means that RUD is officially recognised by NATA as being fully compliant with the standards for the testing of lifting gear and tensioning and staying systems in respect to proof loading.
RUD Australia’s Managing Director, Mr Peter Nuttall, said becoming NATA accredited demonstrates RUD’s ongoing commitment to ensuring its engineered solutions, manufacturing process and proof loading facilities comply with global and Australian standards.“RUD Australia already takes great pride in offering an assurance in our products’ performance and longevity,with every lifting component undergoing demanding testing before being sent from our premises.” Mr Nuttall said.
“This new NATA accreditation, alongside our existing LEEA recognition and ISO accreditation,should provide added peace of mind to our customers.They can be confident that we will work and adhere to national and international guidelines to ensure our products perform at the highest level” he said.
The RUD mechanical testing facility offers a full suite solution for customers that entrust RUD to manage the entire product development process. From design and engineering, through to manufacturing, testing certification,dispatch and commissioning, RUD can partner with clients to solve complex design and engineering issues.
In addition to the mechanical testing of existing products, RUD is able to help customers remain competitive in a business environment where speed of supply is crucial. By providing lifting equipment that is ready for use without the need for customers to conduct their own testing, they can be more responsive knowing that all testing elements have been conducted and the products are ready for use.
