McHenry, IL

Jessup Manufacturing Company’s Glo Brite® photoluminescent films have been certified as complying with the Marine Equipment Directive (MarEd) of the European Union for use in low location lighting systems aboard ships.

As North America’s leading manufacturer of photoluminescent technology, Jessup is one of only two U. S. companies to have its safety grade products approved for use on board ships for which safety certificates are issued by or on behalf of the 27 European Union member countries. Jessup’s Glo Brite® photoluminescent films store ambient light for “glow-in-the-dark” signage, pathway markings and similar applications.

“This new certification continues the global expansion of our industry leading photoluminescent products by opening new markets in western and central Europe,” said Alan M. Carlson, vice president marketing support and business development for Jessup. “It is another example of how we provide the total solution for our customers in a variety of markets.”

The Glo Brite® products were certified to Section A.1/3.40 of MarEd. MarED is the coordination group for the Notified Bodies assigned by the European Community Member States to carry out conformity assessment procedures. The European Union was formed to remove the barriers to the free circulation of goods among its members.
