Chief executive and founder Mark Ward said: “We are confident of continuing our double-digit growth this year and street lighting in particular is a massive opportunity for the business because we have invested in our people and technology.

“The current funding round will allow us to expand our operations so that we can deliver multiple contracts that will be coming on stream over the next few years.”

The firm is planning to open an office in the south-east of England during the year ahead.
