• OMS’ commitment to product quality

    Consistently meeting the most stringent European safety and performance standards

    OMS’ commitment to product quality

    OMS has always prided itself on the quality of its products. Now starting our third decade of luminaire development and manufacture, we believe that a good product not only provides the best technical parameters and latest technologies but also ensures the safety of every user and building.

     

    One of the key ways in which we strive to meet the highest standards is by attaining the respected ENEC mark for our core products. The ENEC (European Norms Electrical Certification) Scheme covers thermal, mechanical, and electrical safety requirements across all electrical product sectors. The highest quality independent testing is carried out by one of more than 20 signatories, all of whom are distinguished laboratories or certification bodies and members of the EEPCA (European Electrical Products Certification Association). Achievement of ENEC certification means that a product both meets strict European electrical safety standards and provides a required operational performance in accordance with European legislation.

     

    OMS became a member of the ENEC Scheme back in 2000 and has been working to meet and surpass standards ever since. Anton Kozubik, Head of Product Management and Marketing, commented, “Our use of the ENEC mark assures customers of the technical performance and safety of our products, which reinforces trust in our brand and the quality it represents on the market.” We currently have our products certified in three independent laboratories: EZÚ Prague, Czech Republic (ENEC 21), TÜV Hungary (ENEC 18), and EVPÚ Nová Dubnica, Slovakia (ENEC 27).

     

    To mark ENEC 20th Anniversary in 2012, Execom (the European Certification System (ECS) Executive Committee) asked the then 25 signatories to nominate several companies each for recognition. The criteria included such areas as innovation and product quality. Of 125 nominated companies, only 35 were awarded the coveted ENEC Anniversary Award. OMS is proud to say that it was one of those 35.

    Designblok 2011

    From October 4-9, OMS took part in DESIGNBLOK 2011 in Prague. The exhibition took place at pre-selected showrooms, stores and galleries in Prague, and our exhibition was held at Superstudio Futurama in Prague – Karlín. A Lighting section was presented by OMS’s new Elite brand as well as strong design brands such as Deltalight, Artemide, Flos, Light Years, Brokis, Luceplan, Lasvit, Foscarini, Preciosa, Lucis, Ateh, and also by technical lighting producers such as Anolis, Lux Lighting, and many other “green” designers and students. The goal of our presentation was to confirm and showcase OMS’ long-term strategy in product development with an emphasis on design.

    Junior designers, journalists and well-known professional designers expressed enthusiastic interest in our display. The display’s author, Petr Mikošek from Boa Design, based his work on Elite colours. The audience’s appreciation of OMS’ Elite brand was evidenced by our nomination as a finalist for The Best Lighting Collection award, alongside Brokis and Preciosa. Our nomination validated the high quality work of our internal and external designers. The most remarkable products of our collection included Startrack (Atelier Pelcl) and Rebell (Ján Štofko, OMS) from the winning NDA 2011 collection as well as Acrux (Anton Zetocha, OMS) and Terzo (Guigiaro Architettura, Italy) from the new product collection. Minimalist models such as DW Castra, Modul Box Max and recessed Becrux also received attention. Those who prefer touch displays were pleasantly surprised by Modul Eye functionality.

    In addition to the above achievements, our participation in DESIGNBLOK also succeeded in:

    • showcasing the high quality of our products to to the design industry;
    • proving that collaboration is required from many specialists to achieve award-winning results;
    • making a positive and lasting impression on prospective customers, young designers, and industry professionals;
    • showing that high quality industrial design can stand next to jewelry and fashion design.
