Acutest is the trading name of UK Test Instruments Limited. Acutest was established in 1990 to offer a technical instrument supply service to industry under the name of Acutest. From the humble beginnings of the two founding Directors the company has grown to become one of the UK's largest test equipment specialists now operating from several sites around the country. Now employing around 80 staff members in separate trading divisions, the company has established itself as a leading player in the supply, repair and calibration of test equipment.
Established back in 1990 we have grown to become a leading player in test equipment supply, service, asset management and bespoke training; Acutest is a trusted name in many sectors for our ability to offer considered solutions and expert knowledge.

Our Service, Repair and Calibration department has grown rapidly since gaining ISO9001 quality assurance back in 1992. The company now calibrates more than 65,000 items and carries out 11,000+ component-level repairs annually. Our in-house capabilities encompass more than the usual 18th Edition and electrical PAT requirements; we also cover pressure, environmental, temperature, combustion analysers, specialist high voltage test equipment and such items as torque tools.
Our skilled engineers can also be found operating at customer's sites carrying out more than 450+ ‘on-site calibrations days’ annually.
In 2008 Acutest obtained ISO17025 UKAS accreditation and this coincided with the opening of a new state of the art, custom-built, air-conditioned laboratory at the company’s HQ. This accreditation is the highest level a commercial laboratory can obtain in the UK and demonstrates the company’s commitment to on-going quality and service.
We are still growing… as of 2022 we have four strategically located service centres with our expansion further north. This UK-wide coverage and our own fleet of vans means we can offer a proven and trusted service – get in touch today and discover why more and more customers choose Acutest.
