Founded in 2011, Burnley based BrightLED Ltd has had another year of significant growth, shipping over 40,000 products last year. As a result, the company, which already has 12 employees, is hoping to increase full time employees by a further 25%, with a new recruitment drive for shop floor workers.
BrightLED is a manufacturer and importer of commercial and industrial LED lighting, specifically tailored to the UK market. The company has a strong emphasis on design, technology and state of the art manufacturing, whilst still offering exceptional savings.
Their distributors are hand-picked throughout the UK to ensure that the BrightLED solutions are commercially available anywhere in the UK.
Commented Neil Hardy, MD, BrightLED: “The last 12 months have been memorable in the development and growth of the company. We have recruited four new staff and will be doubling our manufacturing capacity, when we move into new facilities at Network 65 in Burnley.
“We have also recently won our second largest ever contract for a new development in Deansgate, Manchester; shipped over 30% more products, as well as launching a new brand, Photonic, to promote our increased Lancashire manufacturing capabilities and products.
“Previously, the majority of our sales were based on either standard off the shelf products or customised versions. We are now developing our own manufactured products and in-house design solutions, to offer a one stop shop for commercial and industrial LED lighting solutions.
“We also aim to source as much raw material as possible from our local supply chain and to practice what we preach, by protecting the environment, with a commitment to cutting our carbon by 10% as part of the 10:10 campaign.
“Our future is bright and over the next 12 months, we will be targeting 50% forecasted growth. Hopefully this can be achieved by signing our first export contract. Ultimately, our success will be based on letting quality come first, based on the skillsets of our local employees.”
