Many European based machinery builders have seen the importance of the North American markets for selling their equipment and understand the need to ensure full compliance.

By working closely with PP C&A, they have efficiently overcome much of the confusion that exists in ensuring legal compliance and safety and have successfully developed a solution that is truly fit for market and have grown their North American sales accordingly.

The strategic approach takes every complexity of a project into consideration and designs a solution that not only adheres to the most stringent quality standards but offers incredible added value and benefits.

PP C&A provide machine builders and OEMs with the capacity to take on new orders and expand by supporting the full design and build of their control systems.

Over the years, PP C&A has become the first critical link in a supply chain that ultimately leads to the influencing of the very best end-application accomplishments.

Be it a Formula 1 race car’s top performance, or how a potentially life-saving medical examination is carried out, how energy from renewable sources is captured and how a multitude of other critical products and machines work.

UL 508A Standards

As a manufacturer of machinery, how confident are you that you are meeting the legal and technical requirements of the US and North American markets?

UL 508A can apply to any company that is supplying machinery into North America.

The UL 508A Listing Mark on an industrial control panel provides evidence of third-party certification to the municipal inspection authority and to the purchaser of the panel and it shows that the panel complies with an acceptable safety standard.

The UL Standards page dedicated to the directive offers full guidance and analysis, along with the growth enabling benefits that the UL certification creates.
