About Us


Environmental Test Services was set up by two former Ferranti test engineers, John Fennell and Steve Abraham, in 1995. The year before, Ferranti had closed its Bracknell-based environmental engineering laboratory which John and Steve had managed.

A Rich History of Experience

Continous Improvement

John and Steve bought and installed the contents of the laboratory at new premises at Woodley on the outskirts of Reading. In their new enterprise, they soon gained UKAS Accreditation again. In the years since then, John, Steve and their team have improved and increased the facilities and range of environmental testing offered at the laboratory.

Future Looking

In 2015, we moved to new and improved premises at Sutton's Business Park and continued to grow our business and testing capability. While the COVID-19 pandemic was unexpected, we have continued to trade safely and work with our customers, maintaining a high level of service. We are ready to further grow in the years ahead.
