Applelec celebrate 15 years of trading with a new logo and website

With 15 years successful trading cause enough for celebration, Applelec can now announce 2012 turnover was well over target in achieving a 44% increase on the previous twelve months. Putting the company on track for further developments in 2013, profits are set to be invested into business infrastructure.

In the past twelve months the company has increased rapidly following the opening of a factory in Leeds and a self-financed expansion to the Bradford head office complex, where the award-winning LED Light Sheet product is manufactured in purpose built antistatic rooms.

With 16 new appointments at Applelec in the last year, the company is proud to have created jobs in the difficult manufacturing sector. The most recent appointment is Colin Holmes who joins Applelec as operations manager and will be implementing new production procedures including a job tracking system as his first objective in post.

Ian Drinkwater, Applelec’s managing director, explains: ‘We keep focussing on what we do best, high quality products and manufacturing with 100% attention to customer service. Applelec is a great place to go to work each day and we are all so proud of what the company has achieved since we began in 1998.’

In reaching a benchmark year of trading, Applelec recently launched a new company logo and website. The design work has been 50% funded by the Bradford Chamber of Commerce Rising Stars scheme following a successful grant application by Applelec in late 2012.

The Rising Stars scheme supports Bradford businesses that are creating jobs and can demonstrate high growth potential with project funding for a range of activities. The scheme matched Applelec with design studio Dulay Seymour and web developers Webmotion for identity and website updates which launched in February 2013.

We'd like to thank Bradford Chamber of Commerce, Dulay Seymour and Webmotion for all their hard work and support.
