BLT Direct, one of the UK’s leading online suppliers of LED light bulbs and lighting accessories, had one its most energy-efficient years to date in 2016, boasting incredible sales of almost 55,000 LED lightbulbs over the course of the year.
The company, which offers one of the most comprehensive ranges of lighting on the internet, has really taken the energy-efficient bull by the horns, and made it easy for anyone – regardless of lighting knowledge – to get the right bulb for them.
Steven Ellwood, Managing Director at BLT Direct, said, “We’ve worked incredibly hard to make LED lightbulbs available for everyone. The Government’s push to cut down carbon footprints over the last few years has meant that everyone needed to be educated in these new forms of lighting. But luckily people have really warmed to energy-efficient, and this stellar sales figure of ours just highlights how well the UK has adopted LEDs in order to both save themselves money and cut down on their carbon footprint.”
The GU10 lightbulb is universally known for being one of the most flexible on the market, and the Sylvania non-dimmable LED GU10 is one of BLT’s best-selling LED bulbs. With a 5 Watt warm white light and a 3000K colour temperature, it matches the output of a conventional 50 Watt halogen GU10 – yet boasts an incredible 15,000 hour lifespan.
Another lightbulb type which has taken the market by storm are filament lightbulbs. These traditional-looking lightbulbs are incredibly stylish, but the LED version makes them much greener. These bulbs come in a range of temperatures and Wattages to suit all needs. Likewise, the smart bulb market has increased dramatically over the last year, with more people than ever before turning to technology to light their homes and businesses.
This incredible figure represents more than 1000 sold every single week – no mean feat for a company in such a competitive marketplace. But the managing director says it’s all down to their unrivalled reputation for not only providing a one-stop- shop for all people’s lighting needs, but their superior customer service.
“We really have cemented ourselves as a key player in the lighting field over the last five years or so,” added Steven. “We have always been at the forefront of the online lightbulb market, but our celebration of energy-efficient forms of lighting, along with stunning lighting range and unmatched customer service means that people know we can meet all of their needs – every time.”
