Mo Hanslod, CE Bri-Tek

Bolton LED firm has bright future

Bri-Tek offers the full spectrum of low carbon lighting solutions across commercial, industrial and domestic sectors, covering design, specification, installation and maintenance.

Founded in 2010, the company is aiming to capitalise on rapid growth over the next five years as LEDs and other emerging low carbon and low energy lighting technologies take hold in global markets.

Low carbon support

The company has been receiving support from the Business Growth Hub’s Green Growth service since April 2014 to help improve its environmental credentials and increase its exposure to local market opportunities in the low carbon sector.

Green Growth’s low carbon sector support for SMEs is specifically designed to help companies like Bri-Tek tap into Greater Manchester’s plans to transition to a low carbon economy.


With Green Growth support, Bri-Tek has developed a robust and effective environmental policy, received advice on commercial tender opportunities and is benefitting from links to new market opportunities being created in Greater Manchester.

The Growth Hub has also helped to provide funding for Bri-Tek to undertake an online marketing campaign through its Digital Growth service, and advice from Access to Finance specialists on how to access new funding streams.

‘Nurturing opportunities’

Adam Swainbank, low carbon sector advisor at the Growth Hub, said:

“I have been working with Bri-Tek for the last 12 months and we have been able to link them up with a number of LED lighting opportunities being created through our resource efficiency programme for Greater Manchester SMEs.

“It’s a great example of how the Green Growth service is helping to create and nurture opportunities for local low carbon suppliers in Greater Manchester.” 

‘Excellent support’

Mo Hanslod, chief executive of Bri-Tek, said:

“The best thing about working with the Business Growth Hub is that they identify not just what legislation is in place which will help us grow as a business, but what business opportunities there are out there.”

“The Business Growth Hub has provided excellent support in helping my business to grow and meet our development ambitions in Greater Manchester’s low carbon sector and beyond.”
