North Somerset MP Dr Liam Fox cut the ribbon on the expanded Clevedon-based Prolectric Ltd business.

The manufacturing facilities will help the business to ‘spark a revolution’ in the use of mobile solar lights.

The firm’s growing fleet of lights is promising huge carbon emission and air pollution reductions.

Prolectric has doubled the size of its factory to 24,000sqm and tripled its workforce to meet anticipated demand for solar lights during the coming winter season.

International Trade Secretary Dr Fox said: “The phenomenal growth in popularity of Prolectric’s mobile solar lighting has been extremely impressive and is based on the company’s shrewd decision to ensure its technology is attractive to contractors for its fuel and operational savings.

“Now, the Department for International Trade is supporting Prolectric’s plans to expand its operations into European markets.”
