Huddersfield-headquartered graphic display specialist Leach has recorded a new industry milestone by becoming one of the first UK suppliers to secure CE certification for its renowned lightboxes.
Twenty configurations of the team’s LED-lit products have been individually assessed as part of a two-month independent audit by UKAS-approved test house SGS.
The inspections explored the overall safety of the luminaires, with specifics including electromagnetic capability, electromagnetic field and ROHS tests.
“CE certification is common among consumer-facing products, but is less apparent in the B2B space,” said Leach’s head of innovation Mike Willshaw. “However, brands – particularly retailers – are becoming increasingly astute when conducting their due diligence, so it’s no longer enough for lightboxes to simply look the part. They must demonstrate compliance to the highest standards too.
“Our CE certified products provide that added peace of mind that our displays aren’t just eye-catching and long-lasting – they’re also wholly safe.”
MD Richard Leach said: “There can be no denying that the business environment remains tough, particularly for some of our retail customers. But, for us, this means there’s never been a more important time to deliver consistently high-quality products, a responsive service and value for money. An NPS score as strong as 63 – and higher than the likes of Amazon, John Lewis and Waitrose – is welcome evidence that we’re doing just that.”
