image celebrating 25 years of flex7 - a birthday cake, and 25 years sign

We turned 25 this October, so after patting ourselves on the back and blowing out the candles on our imaginary cake it felt like a good time to reflect on what we’ve done differently, and why..

We are the only UK based lighting connection and control company who design and manufacture our entire product range. We believe vehemently that products originating from the same in house design team, rather than disparate suppliers around the globe result in a system whose components fit perfectly with each other to provide the best user experience possible.

World firsts..

  • The flex7 System was the first 7‑pole lighting connection system on the market. It was 10 years before any of our competitors followed suit.
  • This was followed by the introduction of the smallest sensor head of its type when we added lighting controls to our range in 2003.
  • The latest addition to our product range is Prota plug-in ceiling rose; the world’s first (and only) 7-pole ‘decorative’ ceiling rose.

Made in Britain

Manufacturing in Britain is not the cheapest option but the benefits of communicating with our partners over relatively short distances rather than different time zones, the financial boost going directly into our economy, the safeguarding of British manufacturing and jobs, the certainty of knowing people are working in safe environments and being treated well, not to mention the positive effect on our carbon footprint, far outweigh the perceived financial benefits as far as we’re concerned.
