Richard Ayre, Owner

Ever since I started the business back in 2009 it has been my aim to be the most recommended PAT testing company in the North East, and we’re doing a pretty good job of getting there. These reviews show what just a selection of our clients think of us.

Mick at Seaham School of Technology, Co. Durham: “Richard has pat tested on our site for the past 3 years and he will continue to do so in the future. He was able to work around our schedule so we were in no way inconvenienced.”

Mr G Thompson, of Springfield Motor Group, Washington: “Highly professional and motivated person. High level of service, advice and resourcefulness. Richard’s knowledge is enough to offer:- accurate, logical, assertive, competitive advice”.

Katherine at Hellens Group, Tyne and Wear: “DRA PAT Testing carried out PAT testing in an efficient manor with minimal disruption to Hellens office based employees. I would be pleased to recommend DRA to other companies in the North East Excellent service. Richard carried out the testing quickly and efficiently in a busy working environment.”

Ian at Sanderson Weatherall, Newcastle Upon Tyne: “We used DRA for our PAT testing this year following an approach to our office by Richard. The cost was very competitive in comparison to other quotations received, providing good value for money. The service was excellent and work was done outside office hours so there was no disruption to our business. We will certainly use them again.”

Steve at APEC Environmental Limited, Hebburn: “Richard provides us with an honest, reliable and cost-effective solution to our PAT testing needs. His risk-based approach to setting re-test frequencies is a breath of fresh air compared to some multi-national companies who’ll gladly take your money every year, unnecessarily in many instances”.

Sarah, a Medical Centre Practice Manager: “Richard provided a friendly and professional service which was very good value for money.  I would happily ask Richard to PAT test our equipment in future.”

Nick at Northern Counties Safety Group in Durham: “DRA Electricals provided a prompt and efficient PAT testing service. The cost was very competitive and the standard of work was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend the Company.”
