Fire suppression and detection specialist OTEAC has boosted its business by more than £600,000 by receiving nationally recognised accreditation.

The Schedule of Accreditation from the UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) allows the company to comprehensively inspect pressurised gas cylinders in line with fire and safety regulations from both onshore and offshore markets at its service centre.

OTEAC has served the North Sea market for 30 years. It now has the only approved test station in Aberdeen within the fire and safety industry. The accreditation means a continued commitment to supporting the businesses of its oil and gas, drilling, marine, public, industrial and commercial customers. UKAS has increasingly demanding criteria and OTEAC is proud to have maintained its own high standards to reach this milestone.

Bill Hogarty, chief executive said: “We are one of a small number of companies in the fire and safety industry to hold this accreditation. It has become a legal requirement for inspection bodies to comply with UKAS, but despite this we make sure to meet our own high standards every job and every day.

“Our business is about consistency and we won’t let this slip. We’re proud that our procedures, processes and supporting training and competency scheme have hit the mark expected by the ISO and IEC inspectors. We will continue to work with our customers to the highest industry standards.”
