British manufacturer VQ, formerly View Quest, has achieved Digital Tick status on its range of FM/DAB digital radios and Bluetooth speakers.
Overseen by Digital Radio UK, the Digital Tick is a guarantee of quality, offering consumers assurance of a “future-ready” product ahead of upcoming radio switchover.
“The Digital Tick applies to all our current models; Blighty, Christie, Hepburn Mk II, Retro Mini and Retro Mk II,” said VQ marketing director James Royston. “We’ve been consistent supporters of the Digital Tick mark, with the launch of 18 new digital radio stations this spring, now is the right time to announce our adoption of the mark.”
The company recently made a six-figure investment in a new UK manufacturing facility, which will give the brand “complete control over products, from first design sketch to a consumer’s home”.
It also announced it would be introducing a three-year warranty by the end of the year. VQ currently offers 12-month guarantee on its radios and speakers.
Mr Royston added: “In line with our commitment to the Digital Tick and the successful launch of our own manufacturing facility, quality is at the core of everything we do and so it’s only natural we share that commitment with consumers by offering a three-year warranty, which we look forward to launching before the end of 2016.”
