Harvard Engineering nominated for UK Innovation Award

10 Aug 2011 16.00 BST

(UK) - Lighting manufacturer Harvard Engineering has been nominated for the Orange Innovation Award, in the UK’s annual National Business Awards.

The Orange Innovation Award recognises businesses that have gone beyond the ordinary in their development and implemented cutting edge innovation in terms of products, services or company culture.

Harvard are best know for their LED and HID lighting controls offering, but it is their innovative carbon emission saving LeafNut – a wireless street lighting monitoring and control solution - that secured them a place on the shortlist. 

With over 60 LeafNut installations worldwide the company employs approximately 210 people in Normanton and is projected to reach a turnover of over £20 million, a 44.4 per cent increase on sales in the previous 12 months.

“It’s a credit to the whole company,” commented Managing Director John McDonnell. “LeafNut makes it easy for the local authority engineer to save money from the outset since we provide the user interface web software, the wireless networks and the dimming units, together with a financial package that gives an immediate payback.”

Harvard Engineering will now prepare to make its presentation in person before an independent, expert judging panel in October before the winners are announced at an awards ceremony in November.
