Happy New Year 2020 and Espaciel news

Dear friends, dear customers,

In the name of Espaciel, I wish you first of all a beautiful and luminous year 2020

Will the new decade that is beginning finally be the decade of sustainable development? Each of us, at our own level, can take action for the planet and for the climate. By making the most of natural light, Espaciel is fully in line with this ecological and proactive approach. Thanks to you and your trust, we are continuing our journey towards ever more efficient and innovative natural lighting!

More than 7000 Espaciel Reflectors in 24 countries

When I made the first Daylight Reflector on my kitchen table, I had no idea that more than 7,000 would follow ! I would like to thank each and every one of you friends, customers and partners for your support in this fantastic adventure that we are writing together to make interiors naturally brighter !

Today, Espaciel products are made in a dedicated workshop in the Lille region. The family and friendly atmosphere of the kitchen remains. It is the members of an ESAT (Establishment of Service and Assistance through Work) who assemble the Light Reflectors. For them, as for everyone else, work should be a celebration and not a chore. Laëticia and Jean-Michel, the leaders of the ESAT embody this state of mind perfectly. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their involvement 🙂

New tariff 2020 on Light Reflectors

Prices will change at the end of January after 2 years without change. During this period we have tried to reduce our material purchase costs. But our local manufacturing partners have not been able to lower their prices. How can we remain faithful to Made-In-France while covering our costs? Espaciel has to balance its accounts as soon as possible to sustain its activity.

To solve this equation, Espaciel will increase its rates by the end of January. This evolution of the tariffs is variable according to the dimension of the products in order to keep a price as accessible as possible.

Espaciel also equips professionals

Your orders on the Espaciel website are the main part of our activity. Many of you also buy our products from one of our distributors. I would like to thank BHV, Nature & Confort, Leroy Merlin and Mon Aménagement Maison for their regular follow-up and for their trust.

The novelty is the development of professional applications of the light reflector. In 2019, for example, Espaciel equipped a call centre for EDF in Amiens. Offices will soon be equipped for Crédit Agricole in Lille.

Both private individuals and professionals can benefit from more daylight with the help of Daylight Reflectors.

Fundraising with Sowefund

Espaciel launches a new participative fundraising campaign on the Sowefund platform – Photo Espaciel

The launch of professional construction sites leads to an increase in working capital requirements due to studies, manufacturing and payment deadlines. The activity for professional customers is cash consuming, even before receiving the first payment. Not to mention the waiting time for the balance after receipt. It is a different business model from Internet sales.

To promote the development of this activity, we are raising €100,000 from its historical partners. You too can participate. In a few days the Espaciel investment offer will be available on the Sowefund platform. I will be happy to count you by my side as a partner.
