Inspectahire Says Prevention Is Better than Cure

23 November 2009

As National Maintenance Week [November 20-27] continues, Aberdeen-based inspection company Inspectahire will be promoting the message that prevention is better than cure when it exhibits this week at the UK's leading civil engineering showcase.

Inspectahire will be among over 100 exhibitors at the two-day Civils 2009 exhibition and congress which is being held at London's Earls Court on November 25-26. Around 4,000 visitors from all aspects of civil engineering are expected to attend the showcase.

Cailean Forrester, managing director, says, “Maintenance is one of those necessary evils, but its importance is something the civil engineering industry are all too aware of. If businesses do not undertake regular maintenance and problems are not spotted they can be left to develop further meaning the consequences, and costs to rectify, can be far greater.

“We have undertaken inspection work on major civil engineering projects including the Forth Rail Bridge, and our presence at Civils 2009 will allow us to showcase our skills and expertise to key industry personnel.

“The civil engineering industry will see continued growth over the next few years with the construction of major projects for the 2012 London Olympics and 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. It is an industry which is constantly developing and one which we see as key for our growth.”

Founded in 1981, Inspectahire provides specialist inspection technology and solutions to companies worldwide. Inspectahire offers equipment rental, contracting and project engineering services that provide flexible solutions. Employing 15 staff, it is headquartered in Aberdeen and operates throughout the UK and Internationally. For more information about Inspectahire, visit or telephone 01224 789692.
