Dave Cartwright and Richard Reed, both on temporary secondment from the Group’s Park Royal HQ, were more than happy to show us round. The new base, which features both a sales office and showroom area, is championing the promotion of Lighting Technology Projects’ specialist architectural lighting products portfolio, which incorporates product lines from manufacturers around the world, including Color Kinetics, ETC Irideon, TIR LightPipe, Astralux, Derksen and Phoenix - as well as numerous other architectural lighting and control products. Graham White, recently recruited from Absolute Action, heads up the new office with Clive Tallent and Sarah Davis joining him from Park Royal.
Other news from the Group includes the recent relocation of both the Direct Lighting and Valiant Lamps operations. These have now moved to Lighting Technology’s New Malden, Surrey, location as part of an expansion and reorganisation programme. Both companies are already networked to take full advantage of the Group’s new National Distribution Centre in Corby where a computerised internal order processing system has been installed to mastermind and speed up deliveries to its customers.
