Créée au Royaume-Uni en 1996 par Nick Shapley et Graham Kerr, LCA offre une expérience et un service client inégalés. Avec plus de 80 ans d'expérience au sein de notre équipe, et avec des bureaux au Royaume-Uni, en Allemagne et en France, nous pouvons vous aider à répondre à vos besoins en matière d'éclairage - que vous cherchiez à équiper un studio ou que vous recherchiez un petit kit pour l'éclairage d'un lieu. Nous comprenons les contraintes de budgets et de délais et nous nous efforçons de répondre à toutes les demandes de nos clients.

Nos entrepôts nous permettent de détenir un large éventail de stocks pour une livraison immédiate, mais si vous avez un besoin spécifique, nous le trouverons pour vous et vous l'enverrons dès que possible.
