The History

Keighley Laboratories established in 1920, has been involved in and associated with engineering since its inception.

When the company was established, its aim was to provide a testing facility to local engineering firms and foundries, which was as efficient as the in-house facilities of larger companies and a t a competitively favourable rate with other sub-contractors.

The different types of work carried out in those early days included Chemical Analysis, Physical Testing, Photomicrography and Foundry Consultation. All of these services are still undertaken today, although over the years, market and industry changes have meant that facilities have changed vastly and the variety of services offered has now grown considerably. The Heat Treatment department began in 1926 and has today developed into a large and modern sub-contract production facility.
