28/01/2022

In this issue of Best Practice, we have chosen to recommend CML Innovative Technologies for its industry leading approach to the production of miniature lighting for signalisation.

CML Innovative Technologies (CML) is the leading manufacturer of LED signal lamps for all industrial applications and has been working with light since 1931. As a market leader in its field, CML was one of the first companies to introduce LED lamps and now has one of the broadest ranges of miniature lighting products in the world. “In 2004, the company became CML and continued to grow, establishing its international pedigree with two factories in Guangzhou, China, and Sibiu, Romania. While CML remains in Bury St Edmunds, the group was acquired by Spain’s Grupo Antolin, which employs 28,000 people globally,” stated Roger Neal, Commercial Manager.

From lamps for signalisation, panel mount indicators, LEDs, LED displays, medical lamps, and aviation lamps, CML provide light to an abundance of markets and pride itself on the ability to be as flexible and adaptable as possible in the manufacture of their own branded products to meet customer specifications and demand.

“CML in the UK focuses on specialist applications mainly manufacturing lighting solutions for automotive, aviation and general industries. We manufacture a standard range of products and customerspecific solutions from customer concept to production, including in-house design. Our portfolio runs to thousands of miniature lighting options in size, function, colour, finishes and voltages,” said Roger.

CML is continually developing its own product range and has recently witnessed positive movements from customers seeking more product value. Some competitors fall short as they only provide a face value market product however, CML offers further manufacturing capabilities such as the add-on of cables and connectors to a product, which carries weighted value. The ability to meet customer specific requirements has attracted much attention in the industry as the manufacturing processes available from CML dramatically reduce production time through its made to order service.

“Nothing is impossible for us, we produce to customer demand working with customers. We have done work for individual airlines and collaborated with their design division to manufacture LED replacements for incandescent lamps. There is a cockpit lamp, which we have produced for years, and there can be up to 1,200 different pieces per aircraft of that particular type. Our possibilities are endless,” remarked Roger.

You will find CML products all over the world, from medical applications to gaming industries, by having full control of the entire value chain enables CML to be flexible with our clients’ requirements. Since COVID-19, 50% of the business has come from industrial sectors. “Automotive sales have improved in the last year and the industrial side has witnessed significant growth. The pandemic has only made us stronger as a company, and as a result, our flexibility has generated an upturn in demand and helped create new business opportunities,” said Roger.

CML is looking to develop its products for growing markets such as EV charging and associated companies. “We are preparing for a huge surge in the EV market. We’re also developing more niche products for the UK food processing industry as we have seen buying behaviour in the UK has changed with a greater demand for locally sourced products,” stated Roger.
