About BSSLED

Why BSSLED?

BSSLED was formed in 2010 at the beginning of the LED lighting revolution.

We set out to champion UK-based manufacturing with an aim of producing top-quality fittings at a price to rival poorer quality imported lighting products. This dedication to quality has put us at the forefront of the UK LED market. Our 24,000 square foot facility in East Manchester houses state-of-the-art equipment which allows us to manufacture LED lighting products using the best components available.

We control our production process end-to-end with our cutting-edge in-house facilities which include LED and electronic board manufacture, CNC metalwork machinery and a powder coating line. Well established in the industry, we are ISO 9001 certified.

One of our key successes to date is our Osram-powered LED low bay, which has had over 50,000 units installed around the UK with an unprecedented failure rate of just 0.08% over five years. Through years of development, this product is now one of the most competitively priced UK-manufactured LED low bays available.
