A TEAM of inspectors has given Stockton fabrication firm AK Engineering Services important accreditation.

The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) gave its approval to the company's in-service inspection of pressure systems.

David Boxall, inspections manager, said: "Achieving UKAS accreditation for our inspection work with the whole range of pressure equipment, including vessels, piping, protective devices, as well as modifications and repairs, is excellent."
