Our Team


We have a very experienced Management Team, with the minimum employment being 5 years, up to almost 18 years service.

 

Over 85% of our inspection team have been employed for at least 2 years, and one person at Luton recently reached their 20-year anniversary!

We have always had our own in-house IT department, enabling us to design custom-made and fully integrated systems which have been developed specifically for our business needs and the requirements of our Customers.

Our own Accounts and Payroll & HR departments ensure that all invoices are processed in good time, and that our staff are paid correctly – in both instances we have a query rate of less than 1% based on the last 2 years.

All our personnel have good verbal and written English language skills and QLS has the necessary skills to communicate with most international suppliers.
