Covid-19 Operational Statement

As the Government announced the easing of some lockdown restrictions, I would to take this opportunity to update everyone on the measures we are taking to ensure our compliance with government guidelines, and how the support for our customers business’s will continue.


The safety of our employees is paramount so although we will not hurry to open our doors to physical visits, we are committed to maintaining the transparency of our operations through remote access and our excellent electronic and verbal communications.


We also have systems that now facilitate remote witnessing of tests which been a great success and will remain an option for our customers and their nominated third party inspectors.


The measures we have put in place regarding deliveries and visitors will not change and the new protocols we have adopted regarding cleanliness and cleaning regimes will be with us for some time to come.


At Special Testing, we have been fortunate to maintain our full Production capacity throughout this crisis, but we are very aware of the impact on many of our customers.


In support of those affected, we have successfully adapted to changing contacts and contact routes and will continue to do so to help through this next phase.


Whilst we realise this next step may be difficult for many and there will be an element of concern, I can assure you that along with offering our expertise in material testing, we are available to assist where needed.


Our Special Testing team remains ready and able to help, and I am sure we will come out of this stronger together.     On behalf of all of us at Special Testing Ltd;

Thank you, and stay safe.
