Jack Adams - New Laboratory Manager at the LIA

The Lighting Industry Association (LIA) congratulates Jack Adams as he undertakes his new position of Laboratory Manager at The LIA.

The LIA Laboratory is the largest lighting specific facility in Europe. As a result of recent considerable investment, it has established itself as a key provider of testing and certification for lighting products at its state of the art offices located in Telford.

This meant that the LIA required a Laboratory Manager who had the knowledge, experience and vision to deliver the next step in the Laboratory’s evolution.

Jack originally joined the LIA after graduating from the University of Sheffield, with a BS in Electrical and Electronics Engineering and has moved through all areas of the Laboratory from Technician, Certification, Technical Lead and now Laboratory Manager.

This is a key role within the LIA and Jack also joins the LIA’s Management Team.

When asked, Jack said his aim is “to ensure the LIA Laboratory provides excellent customer service as well as balancing the requirements that come with being one of only four NCBs (National Certification Body) in the UK.”
