Embracing the Future in Software – TesTex

Its hard, really hard to press the button on new investment, especially when that new investment is in the old – if that makes sense? But, we’ve done that. We have re-written, what could still be deemed as being serviceable, our Asset Integrity Software System. Why? As software and technology relentlessly moves forward, we know our business must do the same, along with our processes. We know we could continue using what we already have, but recognise that we don’t have the time to...

Brandon Allen – TesTex, Apprentice of the Year 2023

We thought, as it's National Apprenticeship Week, as well as showing our appreciation to all of our apprentices, we would introduce you to Brandon Allen - our Apprentice of the Year, 2023. He has an interesting story to tell... Firstly, we were pleased to announce in December 2023 that his work colleagues voted him Apprentice of the Year. That’s huge kudos to Brandon and a very apt reward for his enthusiastic and competent approach towards work tasks. So, the question is: Is the...

Wishing Collin Burres A Well Deserved and Happy Retirement

Yesterday evening saw us bid a very fond farewell to our own Collin Burres. After nearly 20 years spent at TesTex NDT, most of which spent as our General Manager, Collin has left us to start the next important chapter of his life in the form of a well-earned retirement with his wife Dianne. In true style, Collin was sent off with cake, candles, gifts, our best wishes and a bottle of Scotch under his arm. While he's enjoying his retirement, we...

Another Great TSA Exhibition

The Tank Storage Association (TSA) Exhibition concluded yesterday and we have to say it was one of the best yet. The level of engagement between all the suppliers and its members was simply fantastic. We were very much kept busy all day, meeting up with customers and other suppliers, talking about our services, their requirements and the sector in general. The best thing about it though? We left feeling that the sector in general remains extremely buoyant and that it will...

Two Great Events. Same Day!

We are extremely proud of all of them and it’s great to see them, like these guys have, move onwards and upwards. Charlie Barrass and Jamie Brown joined us on...

TesTex Golf Day – 2023

After a 3-year pause, last Friday, June 23rd saw a welcome return to the TesTex Golf Day which had prior to the pandemic, in the history of TesTex, never been missed. The event saw both customers and suppliers meet up at the Waltham Windmill Golf Club, Holton le Clay Grimsby, which we have to say was in absolutely fantastic condition and the weather was amazing – well done to them on both counts. With over 30 playing golf and 40 sitting down...

Another Brilliant Breakfast Meeting

We held our second event of the year at the Catch Conference Centre, Stallingborough yesterday in the form of one of our Engineers Breakfast Meetings and what a great meeting it turned out to be. There was some brilliant work showcased by both our Integrity Team in delivering an informative piece, and by the delegates whose input around the subject of 'The Mechanical Integrity Life Cycle' produced some great work from which everyone learnt a lot about the subject. The group debated...
