Dialight leaps on new LED orders

Shares in LED maker Dialight rose more than six per cent yesterday as the Newmarket-based company said it had won a major contract with a US power plant operator for more than 1,000 LED lighting fixtures. The order has a value of around £400,000. “This order signals further penetration of the clean energy market and is a clear illustration of how our lighting fixtures can be used in the most diverse of environments,” Dialight’s chief executive Roy Burton said yesterday.
