Who We Are

In 1925, Mr. Bennett Beardshaw founded Special Steel Company on Bacon Lane in Sheffield. Demand for the heat treatment furnaces grew rapidly and so inevitably, the need for testing increased.

In 1939 the test house was built and Special Testing Works Ltd was formed. Over the following years, the latest specification testing equipment was installed to ensure Special Testing maintained it position as one of the industry leaders. As technology progressed, and the introduction of Non-Destructive evaluation techniques established, Special Testing (Non-Destructive) Ltd was formed to offer these modern testing services.

Operating out of a modern facility, on the site of the original testhouse, the recently re-furbished Douglas Building houses the Mechanical Testing Laboratory, the Metallurgical Laboratory and the Analytical Department. Due to the processes carried out, and the need for craneage facilities, Special Testing (Non-Destructive) Ltd operate out of a separate facility on the same site, next to the Test Piece preparation department.

Today, more than 65 years after the formation of Special Testing, the philosophy remains the same, and Special Testing continue to invest heavily in the latest equipment to ensure they remain as one of the countries leading material testing specialists.
