Homebase awards exclusive lighting contract to TCP

Technical Consumer Products (TCP) has secured a major contract to be the sole supplier of CFL lamps to Homebase in the UK.

TCP will also supply its LED candles, LED 6W GLS lamps, LED GU10 lighting and ecohalogen products as part of the contract.

In addition, the company has also worked closely with Homebase to develop Homebase-branded versions of all of its energy efficient bulbs.

The contract comes just months after the US-based firm set up its UK office in Northampton.

David Cattrall, senior buyer, core electrical at Homebase says: “We chose TCP for its proven track record in the US, its ground-breaking range of bulb products at competitive import prices and the complete package of support it put together for us.”

Thomas Luecke, managing director for TCP in the UK said: “We’re accustomed to working with big retailers like Wal-Mart and The Home Depot in the US, so we understand the responsive, flexible and supportive working relationships they demand.”
