Leicestershire-based lighting specialist company, Ventola Projects, has been lauded for its export credentials.

Ventola Projects

Closing the year with over 80 per cent of its work now taking place overseas, the British firm scooped the export award at the Insider Made in the Midlands ceremony in Birmingham.

Ventola Projects, which makes VAvR lighting products, was rewarded by judges for its ingenuity throughout Covid-19 lockdown periods.

To aid clients, the company reengineered its primary product to be vastly more efficient during the height of the pandemic, as well as reformulating its technology into a kiosk entry for venues.

Mick Ventola, founder of Ventola Projects, said: “2020 and 2021 have been like no other – but we did what we could to adapt to the crisis we all faced. Entertainment operators understand, now more than ever, that guest safety is paramount, and businesses supporting these industries, need to diversify their product offering to survive in a tough economic climate.

“We’re delighted to be recognised by our Midlands’ peers, and we look forward to continuing to help maximise guest safety and entertainment across the world.”
