Harvard shines bright in British manufacturing

madeinbritain_300x200Harvard Engineering, world leader in the design, development and manufacture of LED drivers and control products for the lighting industry, is pleased to announce it has been shortlisted for the People’s Choice Award in the Mail on Sunday’s Made in Britain Awards.

Despite the current economic climate, Harvard is bucking the trend and has grown substantially over the last few years. In 2011, the company invested more than £3 million in a 40,000 square foot manufacturing facility allowing them to keep all business operations, including manufacturing, in the UK and under one roof. In 2012, Harvard opened offices across Europe, in Germany, France, and Italy, and in the USA.

John McDonnell, managing director at Harvard Engineering, commented, “This award means a great deal to us, as it highlights a key strategy for Harvard. We have always designed, developed and manufactured our products in the UK and we have no plans to change this. We are a quintessentially British manufacturer.”

Harvard was established in 1993 by John McDonnell after he spotted a gap in the market for a 2D electronics ballast. Since then, John has developed the company to become one of the leading in the market with over 230 employees.

The Mail on Sunday’s Made in Britain Awards have been launched this year to celebrate successful and innovative companies manufacturing in Britain.
