2013-01-23 17:35:38 - The Commercial Lighting business, XLED has begun to employ more people with a hope to make XLED grow larger
XLED are an up and coming commercial LED lighting business which supplies LED lamps to the public sector, commercial businesses and higher education institutions. Many organisations are facing difficult challenges to remain profitable through a deep recession. XLED are focused on supplying high quality, retro fit LED lamps and fittings with the aim of reducing electricity costs, maintenance costs, and carbon emissions at a time when efficiencies are key to stability.
Nathan Lamey, Paul Reid and Ruth Woodward are the founders of the business which has a long term commitment to employing local people in an area currently facing high unemployment. Based in Rugeley, Staffordshire, XLED are expanding rapidly under the stewardship of three exceptional individuals who are dedicated to improving
performance and transparency in the LED lighting industry. They believe they can make XLED a shining light, in an industry which is crying out for quality LED products, replacing fluorescent lamps as they are phased out in the coming years.
Ruth Woodward CEO, who was previously the operations director at the very successful Busy Bees Childcare Vouchers Ltd said, “There is real potential with XLED, we provide quality products with short term payback periods. We already have an impressive list of clients, spanning local councils, colleges, universities, care home groups and commercial businesses. We are focused on developing our Staffordshire base and creating a number of employment opportunities.”
In the past six months XLED have seen their Rugeley based team expand from three to ten very capable people with a diverse range of skill sets. Operations Director Nathan Lamey had this to say about the growth of the business, “We have assembled a passionate team of people, who are all focused on making waves in a market which is still in its infancy. Our team understand what is required to achieve significant growth. This teamed with the organisational skills, experience and desire we have can achieve great things, and this indicates a bright future for XLED.”
