Paxton has opened a state-of-the-art product test centre at its Global Head Office, in Brighton. This new investment allows Paxton and other businesses to test products during the manufacturing phase. The robust testing equipment will increase the quality and durability of the products.
The company has transformed its warehouse space into the world-class Paxton Test Facility. This means, Paxton now provides a space to carry out compliance and environmental testing. This new facility will improve Paxton’s productivity and output, product testing that has previously taken months can be performed within a week, meaning product will be available to customers quicker.
The new facility has a wide range of test equipment, including an electro-magnetic compatibility (EMC) compliance test chamber and environment test chambers.
With increased access to equipment, and the flexibility to test at many more stages of development, Paxton, and other companies, can continue to develop more robust and reliable products for their customers.
Brett Glass, Team Leader - System Compliance, said: “Every single product manufactured by Paxton globally is subject to rigorous testing to ensure it complies with industry regulations and meet the needs of the market. These tests are a necessary element of product development but can often cause delays in releasing a product to market, simply due to lack of availability from external test houses.
“Having our own in-house facility will accelerate the testing process, which ultimately means our new world-class products will be on the shelves quicker than ever before. We are also pleased to say that the Paxton Test Facility is officially open for other businesses to utilise our equipment to increase their productivity and quality or products.”
The Paxton Test Facility is open to any businesses, and the local universities, to support their product testing requirements and further establish Paxton as part of the local business community.
