John Lewis and Asda are two high-street names that stock the LCD television sets designed and made by this Yorkshire company. Cello Electronics outsources most of its work, employing a team in China to design the sets, and subcontracting manufacturing to two factories in north England. Founded in 1996 by Brian Palmer, it recently launched a television set with space for users to dock an iPod so that they can watch downloaded films. Sales at the company have grown 36% a year from £8.7m in 2005 to an annualised £21.8m in 2008.
