Paul Watkin testimonial

“The lighting refurbishment carried out went very well, the team from eLight were excellent. They completed the work quickly and efficiently with no disruption to the branch over the two days they were here.

The installation has made a dramatic difference, with the showroom/counter area being much brighter and the inclusion of sensor lighting in the warehouse areas, which should pay dividends on supply costs. Overall we are very happy with the works carried out and the subsequent transformation.”
