Ridgeons are one the largest independent timber and builders merchants in the business and as a company we are always striving to ensure a safe working environment for our staff and customers, and so in 2014 we chose Hawkesworth Appliance Testing to carry out our PAT testing.

Hawkesworth carried out almost 9500 test across 30 locations and we were very happy with their commitment to a job well done, and we will certainly look to Hawkesworth to carry out our PAT testing in 2015.
