Status International makes electrical lighting and accessories. The group supplies wholesalers, supermarkets and retailers from its warehouse in West Yorkshire. Managing director Peter McVeigh, 76, was awarded the Freedom of the City of London last November, in recognition of his 50 years’ work in the lighting industry. Profits rose to £4.7m in 2012, partly helped by government-funded initiatives promoting the use of efficient lighting.
