My main interest has always been in the lighting sector and the effects correct lighting can give.So in 2008 I joined MG (a Low Energy lighting development company based in Scarborough) as Sales Director.

Developed the 8to5 Energy Saver and won the Shell Spring board award for products that best combat climate change. Our reputation grew and started to offer low energy lighting solutions to many blue chip companies
Asda, ,Morrisons ,Ford ,Hospitals, Schools, Colleges ,Ministry of Defence.etc

We have also developed bespoke products for Whitbread, Costa Coffee, Network Rail, Salford University.

With over 35 years experience in the lighting industry I believe I can offer the best advice on the correct and most cost effective lighting solutions to maximise both energy and maintenance savings, not only to
energy managers but also to contractors.
