Livecopper, founded by Alf Allingham and Andrew Davies, stands as a testament to innovation in the retail industry. Established in 2012, it became the first online store dedicated to providing a wide range of light fittings, electrification, plumbing, and sanitary ware products. This groundbreaking venture emerged at a time when online shopping was still in its infancy, particularly in the realm of home infrastructure. 

What sets Livecopper apart is its unwavering commitment to bridging the gap between traditional brick-and-mortar stores and the digital realm. By offering a comprehensive selection of products through a user-friendly website, Livecopper has become a leader in its field. The platform's intuitive design allows customers to easily navigate through various categories and access detailed product information, accompanied by competitive pricing.
