Essential Supplies. Who are we?

Hello. 

We thought we’d take this opportunity to introduce ourselves properly.

We’ve been around for over 21 years and have steadily grown in to one of the top companies in the UK for the supply and manufacture of lighting, electrical, rigging and audio products.

What do we do?

We sell a huge range of products. Everything from electrical adaptors and power distribution to stage, marquee or disco effect lighting. Audio products like mixing consoles, speakers and rigging systems to our new portable electrical vehicle chargers.

Don’t see what you need on our online store? Give us a call, we can source just about anything you need at a competitive price but without any compromise on quality.

As well as selling an extensive stock range we make specialist products for anyone who needs them.

In the past this has been to a diverse range of industries like the events, film & TV industry to festivals, ice rinks, theatres, plant rental, wedding venues, hotels, the Government, IT industries, marine, construction and electric vehicle industries.

Supplying 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 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.

Where do we sell to?

Based in the south of England we supply clients across the UK from as far north as the Shetland Islands to as far south west as the Isles of Scilly.

We have delivered adaptors to Mount Everest Base Camp, completed a last-minute delivery of plugs to Glastonbury to ensure there were working showers for the revellers, as well as delivering equipment to the British Antarctic Survey so we’re up for any challenge!

But we don’t stop there.

Our client base stretches across Europe and the rest of the World from Norway and Finland to New Zealand and Australia. We have delivered far and wide, from sending extension cables to oil rigs off the coast of Taiwan, distros to Dubai, plugs to Vietnam and cader clamps to Orlando.

Plus, the best bit? We are all human.

Whether it’s on the phone or online, call us and you’ll speak directly to one of our friendly team for a great buying experience.

And, offering a same day dispatch we really are going that extra mile to make sure you get the best customer service possible.
