Green Plug reaches Parliament!

Mary Creagh (Labour MP; Wakefield) raised Logicor's achievements this month in Parliament:

"I am grateful to the Minister for giving way to me for a second time. On his point about innovation and local firms, may I say that Logicor Ltd, a firm in my constituency, has developed a plug that automatically turns off after a set period of time? When people iron for three quarters of an hour or an hour-or, in my case, five minutes-the plug will then automatically turn off, so there is no danger of someone forgetting about the iron, leaving it on and potentially setting their house on fire. Such appliances have huge potential to make energy and financial savings for homes, be it through turning off the light on someone's microwave or the light on their dishwasher-those devices also use energy"


Green Plug venture deal with major EMS provider

Logicor have entered a joint venture deal with a world-class Electronics Manufacturing Services provider to take the sole manufacture of Logicor's Green Plugs onto the global market. The deal will enable rapid expansion onto the highly lucrative North American and Asian continents to continue on from Green Plug's successful UK launch in 2009.

Further details will be released later this year.
