After the acquisition by AED group in December 2016, the audiovisual brand Luxibel underwent a real transformation. The existing product range was completely replaced by a series of twenty new AV products developed by AED group and produced under their supervision. Thanks to the thorough care and attention to quality, the Luxibel products are now awarded with the TÜV SÜD GS mark for the first time in the history of the Entertainment Light Industry.
The TÜV SÜD GS certification fits Luxibel into the larger story of a thorough Quality Control. Quality control starts with the design of the products, the choice of components and the selection of reliable manufacturers. When the first prototypes are ready for production, TÜV SÜD will completely dismantle the products and thoroughly analyze multiple samples in its professional labs. The factory and production processes are also inspected. The Luxibel B PARs are the first products that will receive the TÜV SÜD GS certificate.
Hans Vanderheijden, Managing Director at AED Distribution: "The TÜV SÜD checks are supplementary to the own quality inspections that take place at AED group in Belgium. Each Luxibel product that rolls off the belt undergoes an 8-hour endurance test and is checked on 22 functionalities. When these test are successful the product is provided with the Luxibel European Quality sticker. The TÜV SÜD certification is highly regarded worldwide, which gives confidence to our customers. "
Nils De Laeter, Product Manager Luxibel: "Customers use the Luxibel products to realize beautiful productions. Quality and reliability are therefore particularly important. The systematic, thorough quality controls of the Luxibel products result in technical downturns that are among the lowest in our industry. "
Peter Dutrieux, global key account manager ENE TÜV SÜD: “TÜV SÜD has performed the tests on the Luxibel products from AED and can state that the Luxibel products have met the high lightning standards for these products. Luxibel proof their quality by achieving the TÜV SÜD GS mark for these products. The TÜV SÜD GS mark is a reliably safety mark which states that the product is safe and that the production is monitored. TÜV SÜD as testing partner for Luxibel congratulates Luxibel with achieving this high quality safety level for their products.”
All Luxibel products are offered via the AED Toolbox. Depending on the need, the customer can rent, buy or lease Luxibel products or they can acquire them in the new ‘Pay Per Use’ business model. The customer can decide which formula or combination suits best to his needs.
