Lighting up the industry
Published: 13 January 2020 - Carly Wills
During 2019, Scolmore Group made a significant investment in its successful OVIA brand of lighting to create a dedicated, independent lighting company – OVIA Ltd.
The aim was to bring to the professional electrical contract market a vastly extended range of high quality products that are very competitively priced, and are available through the reliable wholesale channel. The OVIA product offer now covers a much wider range of sectors alongside the mainly residential and light commercial ones previously serviced. These include commercial, industrial, utility, amenity, emergency lighting and floodlighting.
OVIA is not another new LED lighting company - the name is a familiar one in the industry. It was first introduced by Scolmore in 2011 as the umbrella brand for the company’s growing lighting collection. Having enjoyed considerable success with it during the last eight years, Scolmore recognised the market potential that the transformation of the lighting sector has brought in recent years, with the emphasis on energy efficiency and connected systems. The new OVIA lighting range has been developed with this in mind and includes a full range of lighting control solutions that will optimise energy saving credentials.
OVIA Ltd is now officially launched, with leading industry expert, Mike Collins, heading up the business and a highly experienced sales team on board to take the new OVIA offering out to customers across the UK.
Collins commented: “Our aim is to provide contractors with a broad range of lighting products that are quick and easy to install and will save them time and money on any given project. We believe that we have a winning formula with this new OVIA range. We already have a reputation for quality and reliability and we believe we are hitting the market at the right time to fill a gap for a broad spectrum of entry level lighting products that are highly competitively priced, offer a range of unique features and benefits, and are unmatched by competitors.”
