Applelec celebrates 20 years of successful trading
Applelec is delighted to announce a phenomenal milestone in business as the company celebrates 20 years of successful trading.
Applelec has seen significant changes and developments within this time with increases in premises, investments and staff members. From humble beginnings as a metal fabricator, Applelec has since widened its company offerings and now combines work as a bespoke manufacturer of signage, displays and LED solutions. with Applelec’s lighting product, LED Light Sheet selected to provide illumination for a range of national and international projects. Along with activities as a lighting manufacturer, Applelec supplies LED systems, which has seen the company recently become the sole UK distributor for SloanLED.
The evolution of the company has led to substantial growth for Applelec and to accommodate this, the company in 2016 relocated its operations to bigger premises with all manufacturing output taking place in-house at Applelec’s 6.3 acre Wharfedale Business Park in Bradford. The increase in space has enabled Applelec to continue its developments with investments in equipment, machinery and facilities, which has so far included a new dual purpose powder and wet spray plant, AXYZ CNC router, large format press brake machine and a dedicated manufacturing area for Applelec’s new NeonLux LED product.
Along with the company investing in new technology and machinery, one part of Applelec that has remained unchanged for the last 20 years is craftsmanship being the backbone of the company. Applelec has always taken great pride in its team of skilled fabricators, who through time-honoured expertise have been creating precision manufactured signage since 1998.
Ian Drinkwater, Applelec’s managing director said: ‘We are all so proud of what the company has achieved since 1998 and we will continue focusing on what we do best, high quality products and manufacturing with 100% attention on customer service. With clients at the forefront of everything we do, we have increased Applelec’s team to now almost 100 strong consisting of, CAD designers, technical advisors, a design engineer and field staff to better accommodate and support our customers’ needs.’
