Prolight expands, with the ‘Building Our Future’ project

Driven by a continued need to serve its customers at the highest level, Prolight is creating a next-generation workplace environment that brings together innovation and distribution. The ‘Building Our Future’ project consists of 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 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 trusses and staging.

The main building will allow for the increase of stock lines by more than 50% and also allow a higher stock holding of all items. This space will accommodate a new modern open-plan office, along with service, R&D, and cable manufacturing departments.

Andrew Jeffrey, Managing Director 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.”
