Tamlite in the spotlight after winning prestigious new award

Specialist UK lighting manufacturer, Tamlite Lighting, is the first winner of the Lighting Industry Association’s Quality Assurance (LIAQA) Award. The business, which distributes its products exclusively through CEF, was awarded the distinction due to its ongoing commitment to best practice, excellence and quality assurance.

Launched this year, the LIAQA scheme aims to ensure suppliers of lighting and lighting-related products have processes in place that result in high product quality and standards compliance. Tamlite was a founding participant of the project and impressed the LIA’s judging panel with its dedication to maintaining high standards across its seven sites.

Supporting and meeting the standards of the LIAQA scheme is an important priority for Tamlite’s senior management, and the company has invested over £100,000 in state-of-the-art, specialist test facilities as part of the process. In an unprecedented move, the company’s seven main Midland’s factories each underwent separate LIAQA assessments and gained accreditation in less than two years – a significant achievement for which Tamlite was strongly commended by the LIA.

John Allden, General Manager at Tamlite commented on the award: “Winning the LIA’s first award for quality assurance is a tremendous achievement for Tamlite Lighting, and gives our customers confidence in our commitment to high standards across our entire product range. We are delighted to be recognised by the LIA – the largest and most important lighting trade association in Europe – and are committed to working alongside them as they strive for excellence and best practice.”

Andrew Moseley, Head of Procurement and Marketing at CEF, the UK’s expert supplier of electrical products and services, added: “Tamlite’s commitment to manufacturing high quality products is a key reason why it is an important part of the CEF family. For us, it’s essential that we can offer cost-effective lighting solutions to our customers that are of the highest possible quality.”

Steve Davies, CEO of the LIA, added: ““Tamlite Lighting is truly deserving of this award – the company’s commitment to the LIAQA scheme is unparalleled. We were very impressed that Tamlite achieved accreditation at seven factories in just two years, and it reflects the significant amount of time and investment that has been dedicated to the process. For customers, it clearly demonstrates that Tamlite is serious about ensuring consistent product quality and compliance.”
