Ansell Lighting continues to expand its team with the appointment of Mark Rogers as National Sales Manager for Ireland, responsible for both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Mark joins Ansell with more than 20 years’ experience in the electrical industry, starting his career with two independent wholesalers and gaining further experience with YESSS Electrical, before joining Bell Lighting as Area Sales Manager for two years and National Sales Manager for three years and playing a pivotal role in growing the brand’s market share in Ireland.
In his new role he will be responsible for supporting the Area Sales Managers, supporting buying groups and national and independent wholesalers, whilst expanding Ansell’s market share.
Mark said, “I’m excited to be joining such a fast-moving and ambitious business. I’ve been particularly impressed by our product range and I’m excited to explore future opportunities in smart lighting, particularly with Ansell’s market-leading Octo brand.”
Ansell Lighting has achieved LIA Laboratory Certification 003 for its Warrington-based luminaire testing facilities.
The laboratory is one of just six in the UK to have achieved the accreditation, enabling Ansell to validate the quality and performance of its new and existing products in-house.
Mark Abbott, Managing Director at Ansell Lighting, said, “The LIA Laboratory Certification acknowledges our testing capabilities as being on a par with those at the LIA’s own testing facilities at Telford.
“We underwent a stringent evaluation process, covering everything from test equipment and procedures to our quality management system and independence and impartiality, and are delighted to have earned our place among an elite group within the luminaire community.”
“Being approved to carry out lumens testing in-house, rather than having to outsource testing, enables us to streamline and enhance product development and speed up route to market. Crucially, the ‘LIA Lab Certification’ logo delivers instant assurance to Ansell customers that our products adhere to the highest industry standards.”
Established in 1992, Ansell Lighting is a recognised market leader in the design and manufacture of high quality luminaires for the commercial, domestic, industrial, and architectural markets.
