A Preston-based business which provides specialist LED lighting for property developments is experiencing rapid growth after securing a number of significant contracts and a trade finance agreement with Creative Capital.

Lumenata Lighting Design, based in Bamber Bridge, designs, supplies and installs fully customised lighting schemes for commercial and residential properties in the UK and Europe.

Established in 2006, the business boasts a diverse client base including office developers, public sector organisations, owners of private residential properties and operators of hotel, retail and leisure facilities.

Recent high profile work includes projects at London’s iconic Shard building, Coventry City Football Club and a fit out for health and beauty retailer Bodycare’s 120 stores nationwide.

In the North West, clients include Blackburn Rovers FC , Royal Preston Hospital, Chorley Market and a number of Premier League footballers who have used its services to create impressive lighting features in their homes.

A rapid rise in demand has seen the business’s turnover reach £600,000. The company, which currently employs four people, is now planning to create a number of new jobs over the coming months.

Lumenata Lighting Design’s growth is being supported by a package of short-term trade finance facilities, supplied by independent alternative lender Creative Capital.

Paul Hindle, managing director of Lumenata Lighting Design, said: “We’ve seen a dramatic rise in demand over the past 12 months as architects, developers and interior designers are increasingly looking to create, high-tech LED lighting solutions to give their buildings real stand-out appeal.”
