Our voice on material certification


David has been with LRQA since 2008, and is a Graduate Materials Engineer and Chartered Engineer, specialising in material inspection and certification at foundries, forges; steel stockists and test houses. He compiled LRQA's factsheet for material certification to EN10204:2004 type 3.2 and is currently team leader for the South-Central area of UK Inspection Services.

Prior to joining LRQA, he worked at GKN for 23 years and was involved in quality control, certification, research and development of automotive castings. 

I want to help people achieve their potential at LRQA, while working in a friendly, supportive environment.
