||Chris Hanson-Abbott formed Brigade Electronics in 1976, inspired by the strange beeping sound he heard emanating from the rear of a small truck on a street in Tokyo.
At the time reversing safety had not been addressed outside of Japan, but with the Health & Safety at Work Act recently passed into UK law and vehicles already accounting for a vast number of fatalities, Chris felt it time for change.
Brigade safety products are managed from concept to production and tested to beyond industry standard to achieve quality and reliability. They are pushed to their maximum capabilities and tested to beyond relevant international standards and environmental safety. Approved UKAS test houses are used to certify products to the required standards. Whatever the technology, it has to pass before we consider it suitable to be included in our portfolio, and products are only released once we are confident they are fit for purpose.
