DRA PAT Testing is owned by Richard Ayre, Director for DRA Solutions limited

DRA PAT Testing is a small family run business; started in 2009 by Richard Ayre as an electrical maintenance company providing preventative measures for local businesses. We saw an opportunity to specialise in portable appliance testing and took it, since then we have grown from strength to strength. 

Whilst our primary role is that of maintaining safe standards of the appliances you use, through a network of trusted contacts we can offer our clients a full range of electrical safety services and related options including fixed wiring inspections, emergency lighting, thermal imagery and fire prevention. 

DRA PAT Testing is my trading name, and my business but it is not my only consideration – I am also the national Operations Director for the PAT Testing Network; I founded this organisation in 2012 along with my friend and colleague Tim James, of the PAT Testing Network, who is the Standards Director. Between us we are raising standards in the industry by raising awareness of bad practices, bad training and guidance and putting measures in place to professionalise the industry. We are making big strides and a major announcement is scheduled for later in 2018.
