LaCie are celebrating their tenth year of business in the UK. Over the past ten years the Company, who started out as Zlectronique d2, have masterminded a series of acquisitions, including the purchase of US disk-manufacturer LaCie from Quantum Corporation in 1995. The European manufacturer have since adopted the LaCie corporate identity and claim to be the world's leading desktop storage and colour management solution specialists. 

Founded in Paris in 1989, the Company were dedicated to developing and manufacturing affordable IT storage solutions, initially for Apple Mac users, using the SCSI interface standard.

George Leptos, UK General Manager told ePHOTOzine, 'The UK has always been an important strategic market for LaCie.  We endeavour to provide a personal and professional service to our reseller network, providing them and their end-user customers, with added value through unique design, technology and service'.

World famous designer Philippe Starck was commissioned in the early 90s to design a range of storage peripherals that took the UK by storm, winning awards and even a place in London's Design Museum. This success has led LaCie to continue to use world-class European designers, including Britain's award winning Neil Poulton and France's acclaimed Christophe Pillet to create innovative and ergonomic products.

LaCie's innovative cross-platform parallel/SCSI & 'Shark' SCSI/parallel solutions revolutionised the storage peripheral market in the mid-90s.  These achievements are echoed by LaCie's latest U&I interface that incorporates USB and Firewire.
