The History of the Britannia Test House

Britannia Test House

Our Middlesbrough home is Britannia Test House. This is the one surviving structure from the Britannia Steelworks, formerly owned by Dorman Long, the famous Middlesbrough-based manufacturers of steel components and structures. The three-storey brick building is constructed in the early 20th century, and has a unique appearance which combines refined Victorian-style elegance with imposing industrial functionality. It was created with the intention of housing large scale testing machinery, and has continued to serve this purpose to the present day.



The MultiSec range offers a comprehensive selection of engineered lifting solutions, including Modular Spreader Beams, Lifting Frames, Lifting Beams, Bars, and other lifting equipment, designed and manufactured to cater to the needs of various industries. These lifting solutions provide safe and efficient lifting of heavy loads.
