Through these close working relationships, we are able to offer both in-house dynamic testing for development work and witness testing for approvals to European regulations.

We have a dedicated engineering team who understand UK and European legislation and work closely with customers according to their needs. We believe in 100% customer satisfaction.

We are also able to construct bespoke fixtures to suit individual customer requirements.
