The Lighting Industry Association launched a Quality Assurance Award (LIAQA) in 2017. The award highlights manufacturers of lighting and lighting related products who have robust quality management systems in place to address product compliance. This award provides a mark of confidence across the industry as well as gives customers confidence in a manufacturer’s ability to consistently produce products to high standards across their entire portfolio. Tamlite is the first company to be bestowed this prestigious annual award. The LIA recognised our commitment to best practice, excellence and quality assurance.
