Cranage EMC and Safety Summer Newsletter

21/07/2021

We're pleased to publish our Summer newsletter, and we start with a people update.

As most of our followers and customers know, we are a family run business and we have had lots of family celebrations recently. Our Founders and Directors, Keith and Pauline Richens, have both celebrated their birthdays in June. They set up Cranage EMC and Safety in 1992, so we are getting ready to celebrate our 30th birthday next year - what a great achievement from a business that started in a garage in Lancashire! We are going to be digging into our archives to find some fun and interesting photos to share our journey over the last 3 decades.

We are also celebrating the achievements of our Facilities Engineer, Ian, who climbed Ben Nevis to raise money for Leukemia Care. Keeping with the family theme, Ian did this with his daughter - well done to them both!

Business Update June 9th was National Accreditation Day and anyone who follows our Linkedin page will know that we are extremely proud of our UKAS Accreditation, so you will often see us mention this in our newsletter. We're pleased to confirm that we are now UKAS accredited for the standard IEC/EN 61010-2-051. This group of standards relates to the safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use, and part 2:051 is the particular requirement for laboratory equipment for mixing and stirring. We now have over 18 pages of standards and updates on our UKAS scope, so we are able to offer our customers a comprehensive range of accredited testing across EMC, electrical safety, mechanical, energy-related and environmental performance.

Manufacturers can use the easy search function at www.ukas.com to check whether we are UKAS accredited for the standards you need, or alternatively contact our team who will be able to advise.

At Cranage EMC & Safety, we are pleased to confirm we have a valid EORI number and are therefore able to provide our full range of testing, inspection and certification services to businesses in Northern Ireland. As an operator within international economics and supply chains, Cranage is registered for customs clearance purposes specifically for NI, to move physical goods to Great Britain for testing in our UKAS accredited laboratory.

Finally, did you know that because of continued growth we are recruiting? We are looking for a qualified engineer or technician to join our product safety assessment team with experience and knowledge of the technical standards used for testing and certification. We are also looking for someone who might have a basic technology or science qualification, who is interested in developing a long term career and is considering the benefits of an apprenticeship. If you know of anyone suitable for either job, Product Safety Assessor or Apprentice Technician, please ask them to visit our careers page for more details
