Frustrated with the high cost and low reliability of halogen light bulbs, Bilwinder Mann, 49, founded this discount online retailer of energy saving bulbs with his wife Kulbinder, 45, in 2010. The Middlesex company develops products in partnership with Chinese manufacturers, and sells stock from its 30,000 sq ft warehouse. Consumers can buy the bulbs on its website or through other online retailers. This year the firm sold its 15 millionth light bulb and is planning to boost sales on the Continent. It has sales of £5.3m.
