The company was established in 1984, and key clients include Manchester United Football Club, ALDI Stores, United Biscuits and Mersey Docks. Alard specialises in TEGG testing on live equipment using harmonics, sound and thermal imaging.

David Shiel, operations manager at SPIE, will head up the business.
