About Us

SELS has the largest selection of Lamps, Fluorescent Tubes and Specialist Lighting Products in Sussex. 

Originally incorporated in 1990, SELS started selling Sunbed Lights. In the early 2000’s they started to diversify the SELS Product range to include Lamps, Fluorescent Tubes, Specialist LightsControl Gear, Light Fittings and SMART Lighting Systems.


Malcolm Livesey originally started SELS back in 1990 and grew the business for almost two decades in Hove, East Sussex. During this time he developed SELS to become the “go to supplier” for any Lamp or Fluorescent Tube product requirement throughout Sussex. Malcolm and his team built a great reputation with both commercial and domestic consumers, based on stock variety, highly competitive pricing and informative and reliable customer service.

A New Chapter

In 2017, Malcolm decided to retire from the business and wanted to ensure SELS continued to thrive with the team in place that he’d built up over the years. After knowing Richard McBrayne, the Managing Director from ABS Electrical for many years, he decided to put a proposal on the table that would see SELS join up with ABS electrical. Richard was delighted and accepted the offer with open arms.

The Future’s Bright

In 2018 SELS merged with ABS, both under the umbrella of the ABS Group. They moved from their Hove branch into the same premises as ABS in Brighton, where they now have a trade counter in Hollingbury and offer same day delivery locally and next day delivery throughout the UK.

Following the merge, we now have a diversified product range. This gives our customers access to electrical products at highly competitive prices, alongside our extensive lighting product range.
