ABS acquires SELS, it’s the start of a NEW partnership

ABS have acquired SELS, one of the UK’s largest stock holders of Lamps, Bulbs and Lighting Tubes.

We are extremely proud to announce our recent acquisition of SELS. Now we are able to offer an even more extensive range of Lamps, Bulbs and Lighting Tubes, all available from stock, alongside our existing light fitting and control equipment product range.

SELS’s history

When SELS was originally incorporated in 1990, it was set up by Malcolm Livesey, who started the business to sell sun-bed lights.

In the early 2000’s the sun-bed market declined due to health risks. It was at this stage he saw a gap in the market and started to diversify the SELS Product range to include Lighting and Control Gear.

Over the last twenty years they have built up an incredible stock holding, an extensive range and a fantastic team.

ABS’s Managing Director, Richard McBrayne said:

At the end of 2018, Malcolm and his brother Terry decided to go into retirement and look for a new owner of SELS.

After years of working together in collaboration, I was delighted to have been approached by Malcolm, who felt an independent wholesaler like ABS would be the best fit for their clients and team.

We have now incorporated the SELS team with ABS and taken on more warehouse space to accommodate the increased stockholding.
