RBG, the leading provider of assess, inspect and repair (AIR) services to the global energy industry that was recently acquired by Stork Technical Services, as a result of a bid exercise has been awarded a three year contractto provide Chevron North Sea Limited ('Chevron') with global QA/QC (quality assurance/quality control) inspection services.

RBG also provides qualified auditors that audit a manufacturer’s management system, technical capability, product delivery, process control, contract compliance and plant evaluation.


Doug Bolton, RBG’s quality services manager, said: "We are very happy to have been awarded this significant three-year contract. Since 2002, we have developed an excellent working relationship with Chevron and I am confident that the high quality of work carried out by our embedded team of inspectors was a significant factor in securing this contract award. We look forward to continuing our work with Chevron over the next three years.


"We have experienced a notable rise in vendor inspection activity in recent years and our truly international reach means we can provide a cost-effective service that ensures product quality and timely delivery.”
