One-Stop Supplier to Over 80 Countries
We are a leading 'one-stop' international provider of cutting-edge lighting, audio, rigging and video entertainment technology products and solutions to dealers, distributors and end users in over 80 countries, with over 40 years' experience supplying to the industry.
Over 40 Years of Industry Knowledge & Experience
The company was founded in the early 1970s by David Leggett and the late Richard Floyd as the Alpha Centauri Light Show - a psychedelic lightshow with clients including Status Quo, AC/DC, The Damned, Depeche Mode, The Tourists and many more.
A few years later, the company switched to reselling and distributing lighting products - and in the process changed its name to A.C. Lighting, to reflect the change of business.
Over 40 years on, Executive Chairman David Leggett still co-owns and is actively involved in the business on a daily basis, having lost none of his drive and passion for the industry. As a result, the company has retained its 'family-oriented', highly personal approach to customer service.
Our philosophy is to work closely with leading industry practitioners to help bring to market innovative new products and services. As a result, our past achievements include helping to bring to market industry-standard products such as Wholehog, WYSIWYG and Socapex.
Four Specialist Product Divisions
In addition, we are committed to pursuing the highest standards of customer care, both pre and post-sale. Over the years, this has led to the company establishing specialist Audio, Rigging and Video sales divisions alongside our core Lighting sales, in order to provide customers with a 'one stop technology shop' service.
Consequently in 2008, the company name was changed to A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET), to reflect the extension of its ever increasing technology stockholding into complementary areas.
AC-ET are part of an international Group of sales companies which turns over approximately £60m (via a worldwide staff in excess of 200), with sister companies based in London, France, North America and Japan.
Through our Group volume purchasing of popular international brands, and our multiple distribution partnerships, we are able to offer very competitive pricing. In addition, our sister companies work together to provide service and support to customers locally across the international territories.
