Quality Assurance

From specification and calibration, to customer support and service.

As a specialist wire manufacturer, it is critical that every length of wire or braid we produce or supply conforms to specification.

To ensure specification integrity, all products are subjected to rigorous testing prior to leaving our London or Redditch facilities. Such tests include tensile strength and resistance, proof-loading, elongation, and diameter.

But our quality assurances go beyond the physical tolerances of our products.

Ormiston's philosophy has always been to give the same attention, priority and urgency to small, one-off specifications as large production runs. This personalised service is what you would expect from a small, family-run business and we are one of the few manufacturers who can legitimately deliver on such a promise.

It is this focus on quality and performance that has been the foundation of our success over the years and it still serves us today, as exemplified by the numerous independent quality awards we hold.
