Helvar is pleased to announce the appointment of Paul Wilmshurst to the position of Director of its Lighting Systems business unit and Managing Director of the Helvar UK operations.

“I’m relishing the prospect of taking Helvar to the next level in all markets at this exciting time for the lighting control industry,” says Paul Wilmshurst. “There are significant opportunities for the sector as organisations look to energy saving technologies such as lighting control to lower costs and reduce carbon footprint. With a great range of products coupled with a reputation for innovation, Helvar, is well-placed to take advantage of this trend.”
