English lighting distributor Lightfactor has launched a new division: The Cut Colour Company.

The Cut Colour Company is the new one-stop color-call shop for anything involving a color call for the entertainment industry. Filters from all the leading manufacturers, including Lee, Rosco, GAM and Chris James are available from stock in both roll and sheet formats, as well as Gobos from DHA. Additionally, there’s a full color-cutting service available for filter, which can either be cut to size or made up into scrolls as required.

Mandy Bullock-Williams, who ran the filter room of Lighting Technology Group (LTG), will head Lightfactor’s Cut Colour Company. Her appointment coincides with the two other X-LTG people joining the Lightfactor team--Jeff Harwood and Bob Peach--consolidating the company’s current period of expansion.

Lightfactor has been progressively moving into new products and services. The new service fills the demand for a quality, service-driven company, in this field. It will also fill a recent void in the market left by changes amongst major players.

In its initial few weeks, The Cut Colour Company has supplied products for a diverse range of applications, shows and artists including the MOBO Awards, Robbie Williams, Westlife, and the Disney Kid's Awards.

Lightfactor's managing director, Paul de Ville, says: “For me, it's like going full circle in setting up the Cut Colour Company.” His first commercial job was working in the filter room of the old Theatre Projects shop in Covent Garden back in the early 1980s, before setting up the filter division for LTG. He continues, “Given the vacuum created by the demise of LTG, it was logical for Lightfactor to set up a division to fulfil this need. It needed to be run by the right person with appropriate experience, and when Mandy became available, I jumped at the opportunity as there’s no better qualified person in the industry”.

Other complimentary products held in stock at the Cut Colour Company include gobo holders, PVC, gaffer and scroll tapes, lamps, cables and a full range of stands and clamps.
