Prolight Concepts’ Big Move!
It has been an exciting and busy time over the past few months, in fact the past few years, for the Prolight Concepts Group team! Within the last 3 years, the Prolight Concepts Group have not only introduced a state-of-the-art ERP system, created a brand new website and released a 350 page catalogue, they have now relocated to their new warehouse and office complex, aptly named ‘Lumen House’, in Blackburn, Lancashire.
On the 2nd July, Prolight officially waved goodbye to their HQ of over 15 years in Darwen, they never imagined that they would outgrow the 37,000 sq ft premises where they have been situated since 2003. Over the past few years Prolight, one of the market leaders in the event distribution industry, have of late been forced to use two remote sites to keep their stock holding at a level their customers have come to expect. This move has provided them with significant room to grow and expand their product portfolio, and to continue to supply and distribute professional lighting and audio equipment to the entertainment, professional installation, architectural and leisure markets around the globe.
After weeks of hard work from the dedicated Prolight team and external contractors, the renovations to their vast new warehousing and office facility in Blackburn were completed. Prolight Concepts Groups’ bustling new hub sees a tenfold increase in office and workshop space and treble the amount of warehouse bays, with long-standing and new employees already settled in, enjoying their new facilities and excited about the future.
The 1.6 acre site incorporates a large open plan office and modern high bay warehouse with a narrow-aisle layout increasing stock holding efficiency, plus multiple delivery and dispatch bays. Communication is key at Prolight, so they have adopted their open-plan office layout from the previous premises allowing the sales, marketing, purchasing, accounts and managerial staff to interact efficiently. Additionally they have two new purpose built rooms allowing photographers and videographers to continue to provide high quality digital and print media.
With the M65 motorway also being within such close proximity the new location allows excellent transport links to the M6 and the rest of the country for fast and efficient distribution, along with easy access for visiting customers and suppliers.
“With the help of many external contractors and our own dedicated team, we have fully renovated our new warehouse and office complex, and after many long days and nights, we can finally say that ‘Lumen House’ is now our new home! This move is an investment in our future and will create many new opportunities for our businesses development and expansion. This truly is an exciting time for the Prolight Concepts Group, and we look forward to supporting our existing customers and developing new relationships.” said Andrew Jeffrey, Managing Director.
This move will provide Prolight with even greater opportunities for servicing their existing and prospective customers, and also for expansion of the business in terms of stock holding, product offering and team growth. After more than 20 years in the industry and already achieving so much, Prolight are excited for the future and to see what the next 20 years holds for them.
