A FIRM in Huddersfield took the spotlight by winning two awards at a major industry show.
Milnsbridge-based Aimbry International Ltd won the trophies for an innovative new lighting product when the company exhibited at The Lighting Show at Birmingham’s NEC.
The awards recognised the firm’s investment in the Snood, a British-designed adaptor which transforms a halogen spotlight “down lighter” into a decorative light fitting.
Sales director Les Childs said: “The Snood is a versatile product and we have put a lot of time, effort and investment into it.
“Winning these awards will raise the profile of the product among the lighting retailers we supply – and in turn generate demand from their customers.”
Mr Childs said: “The product transforms the stark, white light of a standard ‘down lighter’. “We have a lot of mill conversion apartments which are typically fitted with these down lighters. It is estimated there are more than 60m of them UK-wide, so this is a massive potential market for us.”
The firm’s latest triumph follows its success in winning the award for best exhibition stand at last year’s show.
Aimbry Lighting, which was formed almost 30 years ago and has 35 employees, designs and makes decorative lighting such as table lamps in crystal, glass, ceramic and metal as well as floor lamps and pendant lights for the retail trade.
