You ran a short news item some time ago about the unfortunate loss of 220 jobs at Philips’ Hamilton factory (News, 11 February) which was referred to as the `UK’s last incandescent light bulb factory’. I would like to point out that Crompton Lighting actually manufactured over 21 million incandescent lamps at its Guiseley factory in 1999.

Our business continues to grow, and we have just set up a new call centre at Guiseley dedicated to the sale of light sources.
