Quality Management

Quality Management System

The processes and activities involved to achieve certification demonstrate that quality and commitment to our customers is our top priority. Lockwood International will utilize this QMS to strive for continual improvement in all areas of our organization.

QA/QC (Quality Assurance/Quality Control)

Lockwood International’s in-house quality team ensures that all valves meet or exceed customer specifications, requirements and standards during manufacturing, transportation, warehousing and shipping.

  • Before being delivered, each valve goes through six inspection points.
  • Experienced, on-staff inspectors with at least one on call 24 hours a day to assist our customers.
  • PMI every stainless, chrome and alloy valve before it is shipped to ensure customer and industry requirements are met.
