Pipex px® are Fit For Nuclear


Pipex px® are Fit For Nuclear

To ensure that the UK Civil Nuclear sector has the necessary capacity to fulfil its £60 billion new build programme and decommissioning contracts, it is estimated to require approx. 5,000 SME’s.

Pipex px® took the decision to undertake the rigorous process of becoming officially recognised by the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (Nuclear AMRC) as “Fit for Nuclear”. This took approx. 6 months to complete and required commitment and dedication from all levels of our management and employees, it is a valuable addition to our existing credentials, further aligning our business operations with the requirements of our nuclear industry clients.

Fit For Nuclear (F4N ) was developed by the Nuclear AMRC in partnership with the Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS) and was designed to measure business operations against the demanding safety, quality and costs nuclear industry standards.

Following an initial online capability assessment covering all key categories of our business operation and performance, Pipex px® undertook an extensive onsite company evaluation by an independent Nuclear assessor. 

Numerous areas of the business were scrutinised and verified including;

  • Strategy & Leadership
  • People Excellence
  • Design and Project Management
  • Health & Safety
  • Process Excellence

 Pipex px® are now one of only approx. 300 companies to hold a “Fit for Nuclear” status.
