Who We Are

Customer Driven since 1996

In 1996, NWS Technologies began operations with three owners and two employees. We have grown exponentially since then to meet the needs of our customers. We became a single source for both test and repairs services with a focus on customer satisfaction and efficiency. Over the years, our services have expanded to include storage, program development, and technical support.

We continue to focus on serving our customers and we go the extra mile for our customer’s satisfaction. Our work is backed by our guarantee that if any valve fails a test due to our workmanship, it will be repaired and re-tested at no additional cost. This approach has allowed us to become the preferred vendor for the majority of nuclear sites in the United States, as well as select international utilities.

We’ve developed and expanded our capabilities and facilities to include:

Engineering
Project Coordination
Test Supervision
Quality Assurance
Radiation Protection
Valve Repair
Machining
Welding
NDE Inspection
Failure Analysis
Technical Support
High Pressure Steam

Customer focus is our number one priority. We’re thankful for those who’ve been part of our journey. We look forward to providing high-quality and reliable service for all your future needs.
