Growing Sheffield lighting company Olmec Advanced Materials/Surelight.

com, which is based in Millhouses, has further expanded its team of specialists with new sales manager, Simon Bingley. Simon lives, and was born and bred, in Sheffield, having attended Abbeydale Grange at the same time as famous Sheffielder, Lord Sebastian Coe who he is pleased to have met as a boy!  He has joined the company with a background of more than 30 years in the construction industry, previously specialising in building materials amongst other things, which brought 'salesman of the year' awards to Simon more than once. Paul Lancaster, managing director of Olmec/Surelight says -I have known Simon for around 10 years and am delighted he has joined us.  Our LED and electroluminescent lighting division has been growing fairly quickly in recent years and we felt that we were ready to expand our external sales team to help meet increasing demand.  Simon brings a wealth of experience with him that complements our existing expertise and we are looking forward to his contribution to our future growth.   When not busy with Olmec/Surelight, Simon is very interested in sports, and in particular, is a keen participant in crown green bowls (a sport which brought him to know Paul), which he has been playing for around 40 years, since he was just a boy.  A member of 2 clubs, Whiteley Woods and Hillsbrough, Simon has represented South Yorkshire in county competitions, where he has reached the final and has won individual competitions such as the Romiley Arms open in Stockport and doubles competitions such as the Sheffield Sports Social Open Doubles in 2011.   He also tries to find time to indulge in his interests of music, cinema and quizzes. Simon can be contacted at Olmec Advanced Materials ltd/Surelight.com on 0114 236 1606 or at simon@olmec.co.uk.  www.surelight.com
