Thorn Lighting, in Spennymoor, County Durham, works with Morrisons
Thorn Lighting, based in Spennymoor, County Durham, is now supplying Morrisons with about 120,000 lights, which bosses say will light up shop floors and save the retailer more than £45,000 every year.
The company employs about 500 workers at its £28m 40,000sq metre Green Lane Industrial Estate plant, and makes about 3.5 million lights every year.
The firm is part of the Zumtobel Group and trains hundreds of people on industry techniques at its £1.3m Academy of Light.
Terry Carmichael, Thorn global operations director, previously told The Northern Echo the company was pleased with its progress.
He said: “Contracts for retail jobs show we are doing better than we have in the recent past, and the message coming from that is that we have a cautious optimism for the future.
“Our order book looks healthier than it has for about the past 18-month period and that is very pleasing.”
The company has worked with a number of clients, including Newcastle United, where it supplied lighting for an executive box and corridors.
It's global divisions have also sent lights to the Royal Museum of Fine Arts, in Antwerp, Belgium, supplied floodlights for the 144-year-old Napier Bridge, in Chennai, India, and worked on Uzbekistan's national library.
