UK - Over the course of the last 30 years, Prolight has grown from a small enterprise in Bolton to a global supplier of sound, lighting and ancillaries. It is now creating ‘a next-generation workplace environment that brings together industry leading innovation and distribution’. The Building Our Future project is based around a new headquarters located at the end of the M65 in Colne, Lancashire.
The new headquarters will act as a catalyst for the future development of products and services, and is located in its own secure grounds on a 10-acre site which will be known as Edison Point.
On the site initially will be a modern warehouse along with an overflow building for the storage of bulky items including truss and staging. The main building will allow Prolight to increase its stock lines by more than 50% and also allow a higher stock holding of all items. The main building will accommodate a new modern open plan office, along with service, R&D and cable manufacture departments.
Managing director Andrew Jeffrey commented: “This significant investment into the Edison Point site will allow us to expand without having to move again. The benefit of this site is that we can just construct new buildings dedicated to where the future takes us, whether it be for more stock holding or in-house manufacturing etc. This really is a very exciting time for all at Prolight.”
The project to install the new infrastructure that is needed is currently underway and the move from Prolight’s current home at Lumen House in Blackburn is expected to take place in late spring 2024.
