HOLLYWOOD, FL – Lighting manufacturer CHAUVET has opened a full-service sales office in the UK with its own UK dedicated inventory fitted with UK plugs, sales team and technical service team.
The new branch is stocked with all the latest products offered by the company, including LED fixtures, for which CHAUVET is a known leader. Product categories include lighting for the DJ and Club market; production lighting for stage, theater and touring; and architectural lighting. Located in Unit 1C, Brookhill Road Industrial Estate in Pinxton, Nottingham, U.K., the facility includes its own warehouse.
“We felt it was time to put a face to CHAUVET in Europe,” said CEO Albert Chauvet. “Our business has grown substantially in Europe and we want to make sure all of our customers can get their products as quickly as possible as well as having their service needs met.”
Staff includes Michael Brooksbank, Sales Manager and Darren Jackson, Territory Business Manager for the southern portion of the UK. Both have many years experience in the lighting industry.
Brooksbank joins CHAUVET with more than 20 years experience in the lighting industry, covering all areas of the market from retail/ DJ, production/entertainment to architectural projects. “This is a great opportunity,” he said. “CHAUVET is in a strong position with a product range that crosses several sectors, I’m really looking forward to the challenge.”
Jackson has more than 15 years in the lighting industry, including operating his own company that sold intelligent as well as LED lighting.
These lighting experts will work under CHAUVET’s International Sales Manager Gerry Zigman, who is based in Hollywood, FL. “We have needed a physical presence in the UK for some time, and now we have the personnel with the level of experience and dedication necessary to represent CHAUVET properly.”
CHAUVET markets its products through dealers and manufacturers’ representatives worldwide. In business for more than two decades, CHAUVET also maintains a logistical warehouse facility in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, used to store and ship merchandise to the European continent. The new facility will dovetail shipping but will also provide hands-on, after-sale service.
The new CHAUVET UK Sales Office phone number is + 44 (0) 1773 511115.
