Irish Engineering Services has been launched to deliver premium quality engineering testing, inspection and consultancy services throughout the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
The new company, which inherits the former RSA Engineering Inspection & Consultancy business, is backed by Inflexion Private Equity. It will trade as British Engineering Services in the UK and Irish Engineering Services in the Republic of Ireland.
The company can trace its roots back to 1859. Its predecessors were the companies who developed the original engineering inspection services, National Vulcan and British Engine. The new CEO Stewart Kay says he wants to build on this rich heritage by taking a fresh approach to delivering engineering testing, inspection and consultancy services.
“We have inherited the technical expertise, the knowledge, resources, accreditations and affiliations we need to deliver a premium service to our customers from day one. But we are also looking to create a business that will shape the future of our industry.”

The new Irish Engineering Services brand acknowledges the company’s unique heritage by using visual elements that can be traced back to the 1870s. These came to signify strength, safety, protection, success and leadership in the engineering inspection market.
Simon Turner, Managing Partner at Inflexion, commented: “We are delighted to have completed this buyout to see the launch of British Engineering Services. Newly independent and led by an experienced management team, the company can now grow unfettered and capitalise on the consolidation opportunities available to create a new market leader in the UK and Ireland in the provision of testing and inspection services.”
