Gainspeed Ltd was born in 1997 when it was evident that so many Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) had difficulty in understanding how to meet the newly published CE Marking Directives in Europe. The Low Voltage (LVD) and Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directives were applicable at that time and getting reliable and affordable advice was a challenge for most SMEs.
The founder Jimmy Tzimenakis Ch Eng, M.I.E.T. and one of the founder members of Club Européen (formerly Wales EMC Club) together with a Cardiff based Trading standards officer David Holland, wrote a technical publication “Electrical Product Safety – A step-by-step guide to Self-Assessment” and that is how we started!
The publication was very successful and led to many requests, mostly from SMEs, for assistance in training, safety assessment and EMC testing. Following the success of the safety guide, a few years later, a second publication was written on EMC (“Understanding the EMC Directive”)
With our extensive experience in product certification and being a small organisation we believe we are best placed in the SME’s need by offering a Flexible, Speedy, Professional and above all, Affordable Service
