Hello, I am Richard Ayre – welcome to the online home of my company, DRA PAT Testing Limited. I started as DRA Electricals in 2009, providing electrical maintenance and PAT testing services in my then hometown of Seaham, Co. Durham. By early 2010 I was specialising in PAT.
DRA PAT testing Limited as it is now known is a small independent company providing a friendly, reliable and honest service. We have built up a good reputation over the past 10+ years for providing a simple, no fuss service with professional standards and sensible prices. The fact that we have more 5 star reviews on Google than any other North East PAT testing company says a lot for what our customers think of us.
We are now based in Wallsend, North Tyneside, just outside Newcastle upon Tyne; I work from a home office. We have 3 full time engineers including myself assisted by a network of vetted engineers based throughout the UK.
Our clients include Durham Constabulary, hotels and restaurants, schools and colleges, doctors and dentists, cafe’s and coffee shops, building companies and electricians, salons and shops, industrial sites and factories, and so on. The diversity and variety of places we go to and places we meet are a big part of what I love about doing this work. Whether you have just one appliance or thousands we still aim to exceed your expectations.
I am also the Operations Director for the national organisation, the Portable Appliance Testing Trade Association.
