Lighting Industries We Support


WH Kemp provides Wiring Looms, sub-assemblies and complete builds for lighting manufacturers and resellers of imported lighting related products

Over WH Kemp’s 54 years, WH Kemp has met the needs of many businesses working with lighting products.

WH Kemp has worked with the likes of cabinet and furniture makers to car manufacturers, providing finished light fittings. Much of our work involves the build of sub-assemblies or product conversion, taking an imported product and undertaking an electrical overhaul to enable finished products to meet UK regulatory requirements. Typically, imported semi-finished products that include lighting will require certain changes to their electrical system to meet UK regulatory requirements.

Work Example:
Dedicated Cable Assembly production line set-up to support customers in house operation

WH Kemp was recently contacted by a major store designer and contractor, responsible for creative lighting in many of the UKs leading retail stores. Their need was, at first, urgent, as their in-house capacity was insufficient to keep up with demand in the build of complex cable and LED driver sub-assemblies. WH Kemp was able to set up production in 2 weeks and helped the customer meet its customer commitments on time. With some breathing space during the pandemic, WH Kemp has had the opportunity to perfect the Cable Assembly production line set up, adding dedicated tooling, soldering equipment and machinery. As with all products manufactured at WH Kemp, our technicians are well trained, they will understand customer requirements in detail and standard operating procedures (SOPs) will be compiled for each job undertaken.

When it comes to setting up the production line, the management are guided by the principles of 5S and invests in tooling and machinery to fit effectively into the production line, this to limit time trying to find tools in other areas of the factory.

If you would be interested in partnering with a cable sub-assembly and contract manufacturer who will set up customer specific production area and train a team of people to understand and respond to your needs then please feel free to call us on 01373 855220.
