(UK) – Tyson will act as exclusive distributor for London-based start-up’s range of sustainable, design-led LED lights and components.
Tyson Lighting has partnered with London-based Tala, an up-and-coming LED lighting manufacturer to assist its growth with the contract market. Tyson will act as exclusive distributor for Tala’s bespoke range of sustainable, design-led LED lights and components.
Founded in 2013 by four partners at the University of Edinburgh, Tala delivers the design and manufacture of beautiful bulbs that mimic the aesthetic of the traditional Edison lights but with all the energy saving capabilities and longevity of LED technology. The word Tala derives from an African concept of Conservation Through Beauty and serves as the unifying ethos of the brand.
Tala launched its first decorative lighting range in March 2015 and has already made a positive impact with retailers including Heals, The Conran Shop and SCP as well as Pizza Express, Bella Italia, Costa Coffee, and Pret a Manger in the restaurant sector. Tala is keen to grow its presence within the retail and hospitality channels following the partnership with Tyson Lighting.
With over 50 years of experience, Tyson Lighting’s qualified team of technical project managers, lighting designers have credibility and gravitas with the lighting market. The partnership will bring the much sought after Tala product range to Tyson’s customers at more competitive prices. As part of the deal, Tyson will stock the entire range and provide after sales assistance and technical consultation.
Maxwell Wood, director at Tala said: “Tyson Lighting is the perfect fit for Tala. Like us they work on creative and impressive projects and understand our product and message. We want to grow with Tyson to offer the best product and service possible to existing and new customers within retail, hospitality and leisure.”
Andrew Gibson, managing director at Tyson said: “We’re really excited about working with Tala. They’re a great team of young and driven individuals with their product being the best on the market. We’re looking forward to helping their company grow and using their advanced LED’s on projects to come whilst being considerate to our environment.”
Tala has developed a reforestation program called Tala Ten Trees, which relates to the company ethos of conservation, beauty and sustainability. The company will plant ten trees for every 200 units sold in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Midlands. Tala and Tyson aim to see 1,500 trees planted next year alone!
