MGF have been working hard to improve our current manufacturing processes. We are pleased to announce that MGF have now been certified to BS EN 1090 Execution Class 3 where no improvements were identified.
All companies producing structural steelwork for permanent works must be certified to BS EN 1090 under the Construction Products Regulations. Although MGF’s equipment is predominantly ‘Temporary Works’, MGF took the pre-emptive decision 3 years ago to gain certification for its Factory Production Control (FPC) System in compliance with BS EN 1090 Execution Class 2 & BS EN ISO 3834-3 to meet the changing and future needs of our customers.
During our re-certification audit this year, MGF chose to enhance our manufacturing process up to Execution Class 3. There are four execution classes ranging from Execution Class 1 which sets the lowest set of Quality requirements to Execution Class 4. Execution Classes are used to consider the risk that the design and fabrication of the structure and its parts are likely to be exposed to during construction and use. Execution classes limit the type of structures that each manufacturer is allowed to fabricate.
Quality Manager, Michael Brown commented;
“Our manufacturing facility was already one of the key differentiators in our service offering. We design, develop and manufacture our core range of shoring equipment in-house, providing in-depth product knowledge and flexibility to meet demand. We have the ability to undertake bespoke manufacture to meet customer requirements which provides the flexibility that unusual and complex schemes often demand. Now MGF can provide solutions up to Execution Class 3 ensuring the safety of high-risk temporary work schemes. Well done to everybody involved and the hard work they put into this!”
