A Little Bit About Us
Hello... We thought we'd take this opportunity to introduce ourselves properly.
We’ve been around for over 25 years and have steadily grown in to one of the top companies in the UK for the supply and manufacture of Power, Lighting, Audio and Rigging products to the Temporary Events Market.
Who we are?
We sell a huge range of products. Everything from electrical adaptors and power distribution to stage, marquee, lighting, controls and disco effects. Audio products like mixing consoles, speakers and rigging systems and most recently, a range of portable electrical vehicle charging systems and cables.
We began in 1997 from a garage unit in the sunny and green landscapes of Cornwall, making power extensions and adaptors, progressing to becoming a small business with an extensive stock range.
We supplied a diverse range of industries such as events, film & TV industry to festivals, ice rinks, theatres, plant rental, wedding venues, hotels, the Government, IT industries, marine and construction. Our first milestone success came in the form of the blockbuster epic "The Gladiator" whereby Essential Supplies provided power distribution units to the film sets in Farnham, Surrey. From then, our products have reached the peaks of Mount Everest, sailed to the deepest depths of the Antartic.
We supplied a lighting rig for the Nigerian version of Pop Idol, and the first street lighting to be erected in Gambia, right outside the president’s residence have been some of our more unusual requests. We even landed a prize much closer to home, when we provided kit the 2012 London Olympics.
The first 15 years were busy, but they were a mere drop in the ocean compared to the years following until now. Since 2010 we moved premises in Torpoint as the company outgrew its garage unit, achieved ISO standards 9001 and 14001 and gone from 4 full-time employees to 20. We established a new brand of Power Distribution Products called Titan Power. The new range would offer our customers a more reliable, quality-made solution using only the very best features and componentry and manufacturing technics, resulting in a product we would proudly stand by.
In 2020, our business also felt the impact of Covid-19 however we diversified to include Medical, Construction and Electric Vehicle industries. This helped the company through these bad times. Since then, there's been no looking back. We've supplied the NHS Nightingale Hospitals, Formula 1 at Silverstone, African Nations Cup in 2021 and most recently, the Qatar World Cup.
What do we do?
We offer a complete solution. From fitting plugs to lights, to designing a whole lighting system for your venue. From making an adaptor to creating a whole bespoke power system for your stage. As well as installation we offer comprehensive after-support and training courses for you or your team.
Being located next to Plymouth, we are particularly proud to support the Illuminate Plymouth festival, bringing creative technology and showing what bright sparks we are.
Our expertise is second to none. We have a dedicated team of technicians and electricians who have years of experience, professionalism and creativity, not to mention a sense of humour!
By continually looking ahead, investing in new technology and solutions, we meet the ongoing challenge of changing demands and keeping ahead of the pack. Every product, project and client are important to us, customer service isn’t just a department here, it’s our whole company. We love what we do, and we think it shows.
