Applelec celebrates 20 years in business

Applelec is celebrating 20 years of successful trading, during which time the company has seen significant changes and developments.

Originally established as a metal fabricator, Applelec has since evolved into a bespoke manufacturer of signage, displays and LED solutions, with its celebrated LED Light Sheet product now providing the illumination for a range of national and international projects. In addition to its manufacturing activities, Applelec also supplies LED systems and recently become the sole UK distributor for SloanLED.

The growth of the company prompted its 2016 relocation into a 6.3-acre site at Bradford’s Wharfedale Business Park, where all manufacturing is now accommodated.

Ian Drinkwater, Applelec’s Managing Director said: ‘We are all so proud of what the company has achieved since 1998. Since our move we have also invested in new equipment and facilities, such as a new dual-purpose powder and wet spray plant, an AXYZ CNC router, a large format press brake machine and a dedicated manufacturing area for our new NeonLux LED product.

“In addition, we now employ 100 people, including CAD designers, technical advisors, a design engineer and field staff so that we can continue doing what we do best – that is the manufacture of high-quality products, while also providing excellent customer service. Roll on the next 20 years!”

Visits to Applelec’s Bradford Business Park and showroom can be arranged by appointment.
