The WWL Team

With a combined career length spanning over 70 years our engineers have design experience across the board. We have worked on designs ranging from very low added value items with sales measured in millions right through to products where high demand is one a month with a price tag to match.

Green Credentials...

None of us dispute that global warming is occuring but there are dissenting voices as to whether or not mankind is principally responsible. However we all agree that efforts to reduce our environmental impact are a sensible precaution & we all abhor waste on principal, so we:

  • Diligently recycle - glass, metal & paper
  • Use "green" circuits - to facilitate switching off equipment when not required

EuP Directive...

The Energy Using Products "Framework" Directive focuses on design with a view to bringing about improvements in energy efficiency for products:

  • Sold in significant numbers
  • Which have a significant environmental impact
  • Offer significant potential for improvement

Where the improvements would not significantly compomise the products competativeness, performance or price.

If you're wondering how this has affected our design process - the answer is that we've been doing it anyway as it made sense both environmentally and commercially.
