Doyle & Tratt wins Movers & Shakers award

Doyle & Tratt, manufacturer of the Varilight brand of dimmers and decorative switches and sockets, has won a prestigious Movers & Shakers award. The annual awards, from Decision magazine, are unique in that no company is able to apply for nomination. Instead more than 5000 companies in the South of England were researched and independently assessed against a stringent set of measures.

First published in July 1988, Decision magazine reflects the business lifestyle of directors responsible for companies with a turnover of £5m and above as well as partners at professional practices in the south of England. Doyle & Tratt won the award after being recognised as a company that has made a significant impact in its market sector and as an innovator in the development of new dimmer switch technologies.  The award was presented to directors Dr Tony and Mrs Carole Doyle by representatives from Deloitte, Shoosmiths, UBS, CMA and Emerge Group.

“We are delighted to have been honoured once again for our innovation in lighting and lighting controls,” commented Tony Doyle. Fellow award winners included Sunseeker International (renowned manufacturer of super yachts) Ricardo Engineering (engine manufacturer for McLaren cars) and XTrac (manufacturer of high performance transmissions and driveline components).

Pioneers in lighting and dimming technologies, this is the latest in a string of awards for Doyle & Tratt who have been lighting up the electrical industry for over 40 years. During this time, there has been a constant need to re-evaluate the dimmer switch as new lighting technology, especially new generations of energy-saving light sources which have come to dominate the market. Varilight has led the way in control of these new lighting technologies with a series of technical innovations.
