Established in 1990 by Peter Bowles, Original BTC is now the biggest manufacturer og design lighting in the UK.
Owning their own factories, enables Original BTC to keep production close to the company, as all six factories are located close to the head office. Their factories include metalworks, glassworks and a bone china factory.
Quality, detail and an interesting mix of materials are integral to each brand’s designs. These are created by using the best quality raw materials to their upmost capability, paying great attention to the concept and form. From using centuries old techniques to the very latest technology, all lights are handmade and manufactured in the UK.
With a family history steeped in retail, manufacturing and design, Peter still designs many of the company’s products in conjunction with his son Charlie who became Director in 2012.
