With our staff of skilled inspectors backed up with experienced Quality Engineers where necessary, Probe not only responds with the right inspection support to handle the immediate problem, but also has the ability to follow up with quality assurance engineering resources, if required, to liaise between Customer and Supplier to gather information to help develop root cause understanding.

We have experience in the automotive, aerospace, white goods, electronics and medical sectors and handle simple nuts and bolts through to complex mouldings and electronic assemblies. Our minimum call out period is 4 hours so we can assist you in the inspection of even the smallest batches. We communicate our throughput rates and provide data reports with all activities on a daily basis to give our Customer an accurate up to date picture of the problem at hand.
