In 1927, KEMA was born to verify the safety and compliance of electrical components in the Netherlands. 90 years later, the world and industry in which we operate may have changed beyond recognition, but our commitment to ensuring quality and reliability through independent testing is the same as ever.
Our history is full of highlights and milestones: from commissioning our first short-circuit laboratory in 1937 to performing the world’s first ultra-high voltage component tests earlier this year. Over the coming months, we will be reliving that history through a series of videos and articles covering different periods of our life. You can discover a new chapter of our story every 2-3 weeks, so don’t forget to come back regularly.
