The LIA’s New Laboratories Facilities officially opened
Councillor Leon Murray MBE, Mayor for Telford and Wrekin and LIA President Alasdair McRury (Holophane Europe Ltd) officially opened The Lighting Industry Association’s (The LIA) new Laboratories facility on 8th March 2016.
On the 9th March the LIA welcomed its Members to the facility in Telford. This 12,500 sq ft purpose built facility is the largest of its type in Europe and houses the latest ‘state-of-the-art’ testing equipment creating a UK wide, national testing asset for the whole lighting industry.
To ensure the Laboratory was lit to the highest standards, Holophane Europe Ltd, Illuma Lighting, Kosnic UK and Tamlite Lighting provided the lighting solutions for both the interior and exterior.
As the UK’s largest independent ISO 17025 test laboratory dedicated to lighting and an ISO 17065 (product certification) National Certification Body, the LIA Laboratories has the testing and certification solutions to help grow exports and ensure products are compliant both in the UK and abroad.
Already employing over 20 staff and technicians, it is envisaged that the Laboratory will employ over 60 highly skilled personnel within the next two years.
