The Flash Centre’s new store cements their long-standing position in the industry

LUMESCA Group Ltd and The Flash Centre have opened new premises in the Birmingham area, substantiating their recent growth and future plans within the photographic industry. The new location holds a brand-new, modern space for The Flash Centre’s Birmingham store and an adjacent new state-of-the-art warehouse space, measuring over 12,000 sq ft. This expansion comes after a record year for the group and the need to invest in more space and facilities for customers and partners alike.

Situated in Rowley Regis, with easy access to the M5, The Flash Centre’s new Midlands home is a bright, modern and clean space. With a host of products to test, from Canon, Fujifilm, Tenba, Elinchrom and more, as well as a private studio space for hire and a comfortable reception area to meet clients and catch up with fellow photographers. The store is not just a place to test and try potential equipment but to enjoy, learn, and relax with like-minded people. It’s the same great, experienced team that welcomes you at the new TFC store, Kevin Treadwell and Brian Collier, who offer the best advice and create an inviting space for all levels of photographers. Not only cementing the commitment that The Flash Centre has to the industry but the local photographic community too.

The Flash Centre celebrated the move with an opening launch event on 3rd and 4th March, where key suppliers, industry partners and customers were all invited to the store for a unique, intimate look at the new space, including small sessions in the new, private studio. Benro, Calibrite, Canon, Delkin, Fujifilm, Nanlite, Pentax, Samyang, Sigma, Tenba, and Think Tank were in attendance for customers to get top tips from the brands and gain hands-on advice from pros and The Flash Centre’s technical experts.

It was a fantastic time to welcome customers and partners to the store for an exclusive look around the new space. A lot of time, money and dedication has gone into making this store just right for our customers, and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. The new location allows us to provide more modern aesthetics, on top of our long-standing experience and dedicated customer service.”

TFC General Manager Mark Cheetham.

Deemed very popular at the event, the studio offers a standalone space for hire, partitioned off from the rest of the store. Photographers can utilise the space for commercial and personal shoots, with the store’s rental equipment on hand and the option to tether onto wall-mounted monitors, making it an accessible and professional solution.

LUMESCA Group continues to go from strength to strength, with demand for distribution and logistics growing both in the UK and abroad. During the past eighteen months, they have also acquired two UK photographic businesses to increase their product and service offering, firmly establishing them as industry-leading in their key segments.

We’re committed to achieving significant growth over the next few years with The Flash Centre. To look to continually better serve our customers, the new site provides a modern space, and professional facilities and service to support their needs.

Geoffrey Clements, Managing Director at LUMESCA Group
