We are proud to announce that Northern Lights was the winner of the ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ Award at the East Midlands Chamber’s 2016 Derbyshire Business Awards. The award is particularly special as a team from Rolls Royce was the judging panel.
Over the past few years we have enjoyed record levels of sales delivering an extremely diverse range of creative lighting solutions to many high-profile clients from national restaurant chains to international hotel groups. To further cement our position as the UK’s leading bespoke lighting supplier we have invested substantially in our production, including implementing lean manufacturing principles and the purchase of a laser processing centre, ensuring we offer the most creative, flexible and efficient services to designers and stretching the boundaries of what it is possible for us to create.
Rolls Royce particularly appreciated the way we are dealing with the growing demand for bespoke lighting and blending special elements into standard product ranges. With our strong design team and comprehensive manufacturing facilities, we have the perfect platform to be quick, flexible and accurate when turning ideas into reality.
Accepting the award on behalf of the company, Donna Bruce, Head of Sales said: ‘Northern Lights has been producing creative lighting solutions for nearly three decades and today we are proud to be recognised as an exemplary business by Royce-Rolls and the Chamber. It is both challenging and rewarding to maintain and develop a competitive manufacturing business. As a company we are problem solvers. This award is a testament to everyone in the business. A reward for passion and commitment. It shows what we can achieve with dedication and hard work.’
The Chamber of Commerce Business Awards celebrate business excellence across the East Midlands region. This year the Derbyshire Awards were presented at a glittering ceremony in the Roundhouse Derby which was attended by more than 200 leading business figures from across the county.
