Levant Aci co-founded Pitacs in 1990 and has been building the business for three decades, focussing mainly on selecting and sourcing its cable and electrical products, and cultivating relationships with suppliers. “Stand out moments of growing Pitacs have included buying our own premises in 2010, which was our most major expansion. In 2019, we also established our own testing facility for our LED and other electrical products.”


David Linger is divisional director of Pitacs Electrical Division. Joining Pitacs in 2019 he brings more than 30 years of lighting industry expertise to his position driving TIME LED. In complement to his commercial success in the sector, David has also been a key policy influencer for both central and local government in its adoption of green energy, with particular involvement in the initiative to include white light LED technology in the Enhanced Capital Allowance scheme for energy-saving technologies.


We’ve taken measures – as far as we can – to assure our future cable stocks and mitigate against excessive pricing volatility.


It’s important for us to support the UK industry over the coming year with a quality of product and a reliability of service.


Towel Rails, you leave your pipework behind, and installation is easy. So put it wherever you choose, and choose something that looks great. The collection offers something for everyone, from compact, space-saving


towel warmers for ensuites and WCs, to large, feature pieces for family bathrooms. Topping off the collection, some brand new, asymmetrical rails in a premium stainless steel are set off by a range of quality, PVD finishes, such as Antique Bronze and Brushed Copper. The products are simple, easy – and also safe. We implement a 3 Bar Safety Method for all our electrical heating solutions, so a 3 Bar Valve is


provided with every product in this new collection, as well as a thermo- fused heating element for controlled, safe heating. We also offer a range of compatible Smart accessories for 24/7, precision control of your heating and your energy usage.


How has COVID-19 affected your business? What changes have you enacted? Looking ahead, how do you think it will affect the wider industry?


LA: The cable industry experienced a dramatic slump at the peak of the crisis, and faces more uncertainty in the coming months, as the mining of copper and the production of cable is still being affected by wholescale closures. This has led to significant interruptions to supply for the UK market as it attempts to get back to business as usual. We’ve taken measures – as far as we can – to assure our future cable


stocks and mitigate against excessive pricing volatility. It’s important for us to support the UK industry over the coming year with a quality of product and a reliability of service. For TIME LED, it’s obviously been difficult, as I can’t travel to China to maintain our supplier relationships or source new product. However, we are fortunate that we’ve had our own dedicated team over in China for a number of years now, who independently audit and quality assess all our acquisitions and order shipments, which does allow us greater levels of access and control.”


DL:Whilst established customer relationships have weathered the storm well, generating new business will continue to prove more challenging for the foreseeable future.
