Our 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 metallurgical testing facility to local engineering firms and foundries, which was as efficient as the in-house facilities of larger companies and at 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. 

Today, our state-of-the-art metallurgical services laboratory provides our customers with industry-accredited services.

With experience working with companies from a wide range of industries such as Passenger Transportation, Marine, Aerospace, Defence, Rail and others we continue to successfully carry out contracts of any size, duration or location within our scope, with the professionalism one would expect from a company established for over 100 years.
