History

MK Test Systems was first established in 1991 by two entrepreneurs with a revolutionary idea to enhance the quality of high-voltage testers.

The company’s first product was a great success and was soon adopted by a growing number of customers, particularly in the aerospace industry where ground-breaking equipment was rapidly appreciated for the value it could add. The business started to grow internationally, and today serves a customer base spread around the world.

Through steady progress and a growing reputation for innovation in the design and delivery of electrical testing solution, our workforce and overseas presence has grown. Success also meant a move in 2018 to larger premises more suited to the growing workforce and manufacturing volume.

Our employees remain at the heart of our business and we pride ourselves on their knowledge and experience. Some of our employees have been at MK Test Systems for over 20 years. We have a very versatile, welcoming and trusted team that is made up of experienced staff members with a wide range of skills and qualifications.
