COVID-19: Due to the current virus outbreak we are closed to walk in customers, please give us a call if you need anything, we are happy to help

Commercial Lamp Supplies (CLS) is a well established and successful family business set up more than 16 years ago in Exeter, Devon and offer a nationwide service to all types of customers both large and small, trade and domestic. In 2006 we moved to new premises in Tavistock where we have a larger warehouse and very nice surroundings to work in!

Please call us if you are at all unsure of the lamps you want, or for advice on what would be the best lamp to use in order to produce the lighting you would like. This is particularly important if you are looking at changing to LED lighting as it can be tricky to understand exactly what you need. There is such a wide range of low energy long life light bulbs available that we can tackle most problems successfully these days.

Lamps and tubes instock from the large household name manufacturers like Philips, Osram, GE, Sylvania, Crompton, BLV, Prolite and Megaman. We also have lesser know names such as Smilite or Smilight dependent on how you like to spell it.
