Dialight collects industry award from ‘Big’ Jack Charlton

Newmarket based LED lighting manufacturer Dialight was presented with a gold award last week by English football legend Jack Charlton. The award was accepted by the company's European Sales & Marketing Director, Jim Gracie, at the HazardEx exhibition in Harrogate. Dialight won the top prize for its LED lighting products in the category 'User Application' by demonstrating how LED lighting is delivering a massive 75% energy saving for one of its major industrial customers, Henkel, manufacturer of Loctite.

Jim Gracie commented, “Not only will our LED lights help Henkel to reduce its carbon emissions, these lights will last for ten years or more and produce almost no light pollution, so in addition to the energy saving they bring even more benefits that can be enjoyed by any business application.”

With 150 working in its Newmarket facility, Dialight is a long term employer in the town.
