Axiom Engineering Associates have grown successfully and consistently, and now run a global operation from offices in Stockton-on-Tees, England. From inspection and preventative maintenance, through to understanding failures or problems in the structure of assets, Axiom help clients achieve great results.

Combining expertise in mechanical and materials engineering along with a range of inspection and testing services, Axiom are uniquely positioned to provide clients with a comprehensive understanding of the condition of their assets.


Our Mission is to be Trusted Advisors and provide Technical Excellence to our clients and partners. We will provide our expertise when you need it..

We obtain the majority of our work through repeat business and referrals, most originally starting with a conversation between us and our (potential) Client about a problem with a project or piece of plant equipment they have. 

Even if you're unsure whether we can help you, it is worth calling us to discuss the problem you are facing. We will either use our combined expertise to offer advice and suggest potential solutions or if it's not something that falls within our great range of services, we can almost always signpost to other Engineering Service providers who could be of a greater assistance. 


About You

Across the world, you, the owners and managers of industrial and manufacturing assets are utilising an extensive range of engineering support services to your benefit. By managing your assets carefully and proactively, the impact on your profits can be significant:

Reducing downtime, and increasing productivity from assets.
An effective asset management system enables you to have visibility of the condition of your key structures, and maintain them in a condition to achieve optimum utilisation.
Extending the life of an asset
Combining risk based inspection with advanced analytical techniques (FEA, Creep Life testing), you can predict the longevity of key structures, such as tanks, pressure vessels, pipework, pumps, boilers and others. This can assist you in planning capital investments and maximising returns from your assets.
Understanding failure
Should you experience equipment failure it is important to understand the root cause, which will then allow you to put in place systems and designs to enhance asset performance.


Whatever your area of operation, you should be able to enjoy the peace of mind that comes through proactive and effective risk management.

If you share our goal of putting the control of plant and equipment back in your hands, contact us now to see how we can help.

    The course covered all the aspects I expected, and more, and was extremely informative without being too technical that it became beyond my limits. Well presented in a very good environment. Thanks!
