 Notes from the Secretariat

Welcome to the summer 2016 edition of the EPSMA newsletter.

The EPSMA is pleased to welcome two new members: Inpotron GmbH based in Hilzingen Germany and Murrelektronik Finland based in Lahti. Both companies now feature on the EPSMA website - look  in the ‘Member News’ tab for their details and latest products

The summer of 2016 has been momentous for the EU with ‘brexit’  coming as a shock. The implications for the UK members within the EPSMA and the UK based secretariat are still to be understood

Please keep a flow of marketing information about your products, news and vacancies coming to the secretariat for placement on the website. It’s free!
Also remember we have a ’Linkedin’ forum for members to use and a data base of UL non-conformances for members to log their observations. Contact the secretariat for more details
