Our story

From our humble beginnings in 1992, when we recognised the need for an independent engineering inspection specialist, we rapidly built the business by delivering a professional, trouble free, responsive and competitive service from highly qualified and experienced engineers.

Based in Lancashire, we serve many parts of the UK via our extensive network of engineers.

To be the UK’s leading independent provider of engineering inspection services, protecting people and businesses.

Our accreditations

We are an associate member of the Safety Assessment Federation (SAFed), an independent trade association concerned with safety. As members of this respected organisation, we keep at the forefront of developments in the industry, drawing on their advice, guidance, information and experience to keep our services current and competitive.

In all cases, our team provides a fast, efficient and expert service to help you fulfil your legal obligations by inspecting all appropriate plant and machinery within the appropriate timescales. Our specialists advise on the type of inspections required and the best way to undertake the work, taking account of maintenance and shutdown periods to minimise downtime and inconvenience. We also work hard to deliver an efficient and well co-ordinated service, so you’re not kept waiting and remain fully informed throughout.

You can’t leave anything to chance when it comes to inspecting engineering plant and equipment, but you can leave it to Thurra. We’re 100% dedicated to engineering inspections and undertake thousands at factories, warehouses, construction sites, offices, garages, care homes and commercial premises, taking a careful look at everything from passenger lifts to excavators; steam boilers to air receivers.
