I am Richard Ayre, owner of the business. 

I started this company in Seaham, Co. Durham in 2009, where I lived at the time, and then we moved in 2012 to Wallsend, in Tyne and Wear.

In 2012 we became a limited company and VAT registered.

In 2018 we employed our first employee and then in 2020 added a second. We are now a team of 3 engineers with varying degrees of experience and skill.  

We are also closely partnered with IQ Electrical, who carry out fixed wire testing for us. 

We provide all our services at competitive prices in keeping with the quality of service being provided, which helps employers to fulfil their legal obligations, with the intention of helping to prevent financial loss through preventative maintenance. 

With over 10 years, the North East DRA PAT Testing team of professional engineers combine their comprehensive knowledge and skills with industry leading Seaward equipment to provide you with a quality service that gives peace of mind. 

I believe everyone should have a good experience when buying our service which is why I ensure our standards are always high and that you get the right, most sensible advice that you need to ensure your portable appliances maintain safe standards, whether the work is being done by me, Rob or Kyle. 

I have a second hat, as the Operations Director for the national standards raiser; the Portable Appliance Testing Trade Association, which I joint founded in 2013. We are working with a group of other PAT companies from around the UK striving to improve the industry and raise awareness of the benefit of PAT testing
