Where it all began……
The Lancashire based Prolight Concepts (UK) Ltd was established in 1996 in Bolton, before moving to Bury, and then onto Darwen in 2003. Prolight has experienced tremendous growth since inception over 20 years ago and in June 2018 relocated to a new warehouse and office complex in Blackburn, aptly named ‘Lumen House’. The 1.6 acre site incorporates a large open plan office, a repair centre and modern high bay warehouse with a narrow-aisle layout increasing stock holding efficiency, plus multiple delivery and dispatch bays.
Managing Director, Andrew Jeffrey, started as a mobile DJ when he was 14. After leaving school, he went on to work in a DJ retail store, where he was promoted to Manager at only 19 years young, and within another two years, he bought the company outright. Before long, Andrew started looking for alternative products overseas, which his competitors did not do; this search led him to develop an extensive knowledge of the European lighting market.
Retail sales continued to grow and in 1994 they became one of the largest and most respected DJ stores in the UK. Many stores from around the country heard about these new types of European effects and wanted to stock them to sell. From this, Andrew recognised a need for a quality lighting supplier, thus inspiring him to set up the distribution company, The Prolight Concepts (UK) Ltd.
Most special effect lighting at this time was imported from Italy and only suitable for installation. Prolight wanted this lighting made smaller to appeal to mobile DJs and entertainers. The first lighting was imported from Poland, and within two years, Taiwanese suppliers were also used as they produced specialist, quality, cost effective lighting. This gave Prolight a reputation as a distributor with reliable lighting at affordable prices.
The number of dealers was steadily growing, as were the products, which were now being sourced from China and added to the growing catalogue. Andrews’ extensive knowledge and drive to service other areas of the industry saw the development of further lighting and audio solutions, this opened up sales avenues in other sectors, giving Prolight Concepts (UK) Ltd a wider market share.
To this day, Andrew and the Prolight Concepts team are dedicated to providing a full, efficient and ever-developing service, and continue to work closely with their suppliers, to offer customers the same build quality and affordability they know and expect.
