A LIGHTING company from Spennymoor has joined the esteemed Made in Britain organisation, which supports UK manufacturers.

Thorn Lighting joined the growing community of key manufacturers that design and supply products to the highest standards, believing that there is real value in having a British lighting brand engineered with British craftsmanship which has been endorsed by the addition of the Made in Britain accreditation.

John Pearce, CEO, Made in Britain comments: “I was really thrilled to see Thorn lighting join Made in Britain at this moment of truth for British manufacturing.

"I’ve known the brand for as long as I can remember.

"At 90 years young, Thorn is not quite our most senior member, but I’m sure the unique manufacturing mind-set is exactly right for this organisation, and will see Thorn safely through the current unprecedented challenges and on to the next 90 years of success."

Peter Arthy, Operations Director, Thorn Lighting comments : “Thorn Lighting have been serving the lighting industry from a manufacturing base in the UK for over 90 years.

"The company have invested in our modern purpose built manufacturing plant in County Durham.

"I am hugely proud that our dedicated staff can offer the market a Made in Britain accredited product portfolio.”
