Max Daugherty founded Quality NDT Consulting, now Premier NDT Resources, in 2019. He began his career in welding and fabrication in the early 2000s. Max officially started his career by becoming an American Welding Society Certified Welding Inspector at the age of 20. Working for companies like Quad City Testing Laboratories, Alstom, Quality Testing Services, and Intercontinental Manufacturing and Engineering Corporation gave Max a well-rounded background. Currently, he holds an AWS CWI and multiple ASNT Level 3s in VT, PT, MT, UT, and RT.

“Being a family-owned business allows us to put the customer first. We’re not motivated by stock prices or getting bonus checks, we’re motivated by customer satisfaction and providing a reliable, thorough, and effective service. Family-owned NDT companies are starting to be a rare thing. They bring a personal level of service that’s hard for big companies to replicate.”
