Staff at Scotlight’s Innerleithen showroom celebrate their award success

Scotlight was rewarded for a major investment in its Innerleithen showroom which has seen the company create one of the most exciting and innovative lighting showrooms in the country.

Using cutting-edge iHouse technology, customers can remotely control the display lights in the showroom and run special light-shows to showcase the range and flexibility of the fittings before they buy them.

And a series of stunning display booths allow featured suppliers to showcase their range against a bespoke background and tailored environment.

The judges clearly recognised Scotlight’s continued commitment to the local community in which the business has been based since it was founded by Tom Fraser in 1996, despite expansion into the online world which has seen the creation of one of the most extensive online lighting superstores in the country.

Scotlight Managing Director Andrew Fraser and Office Manager Kristina Dodds attended the Business Excellence Awards dinner on behalf of the company and were delighted to come home with the prize.

Speaking after the ceremony Andrew said:  “I am delighted that Scotlight was selected as the Retail and Town Centre Business of the Year at the Scottish Borders Business Excellence Awards. It’s a brilliant achievement and testament to the hard work of everyone involved in growing Scotlight, from our dedicated staff members to our great team of advisers at Business Gateway and all the 3rd party companies we work with.”


The awards were presented by local MP and former Secretary of State for Scotland Michael Moore and SNP Councillor Stuart Bell – Executive Member for Economic Development.

Scotlight was also proud to have been nominated in the category for Technology and Innovation of the Year award at the same event.
