From the 1st July 2014, it has been a legal requirement that specialist steel fabricators serving the construction industry in Ireland and the across EU need to comply with EN 1090. As part of this compliance standard, fabricators must have an audited and certified factory production control system in place and have tested and certified welding procedures as part of their fabrication process. The CE Marking is a recognised standard of quality in fabricated structural steel, and demonstrates full compliance with EU directives for standards of management, practice and fabrication. The CE Mark will apply to all structural steel fabrication at Buttimer’s workshop – which includes all stainless and mild steel structures, such as equipment supports, access walkways, stairs and handrails.

Buttimer Engineering are committed to achieving the highest quality of engineering – from design, to fabrication, delivery and project management. The company is proud to have achieved the Certification of CE Marking, and will continue to deliver high-quality steel fabrication and engineered solutions for its customers.
