Blackrow saves £44,000 with Lumineux
Reducing operational costs and improving conditions for staff, whilst finding LED lighting that is suitable for use within an environment that provides engineering solutions for the food industry, is no mean feat, but as always, the Lumineux team and products have risen to the challenge.
Initial estimates on the LED lighting installation, that was completed six months ago for Blackrow Engineering, have shown that the company will achieve a return on investment in less than 2 years. The savings have been made through reduction in running costs that roughly equate to £44,000 over a 5-year period.
In addition to saving money, Blackrow Engineering has reduced its environmental impact with a forecast reduction in CO2 emissions of 428 tonnes over 5 years. Plus, with no need to replace lamps or fittings, the time, cost and effort involved with lighting maintenance has also been removed.
Blackrow Engineering has built a solid reputation since its establishment in 1980. Its Grimsby-based warehouse and manufacturing facility now accounts for 100,000sq ft of operational capacity, where products are both made and assembled ahead of customer deliveries.
After hearing that Lumineux are an expert LED lighting distributors, through professional business networks and personal recommendation, Blackrow contacted us to conduct a survey and lighting plan of their warehouse. They had been informed that Lumineux delivers a consistent, high-quality service from the initial inspection, right the way through to the aftersales support, all while providing a plethora of excellent lighting products.
Before advising on the most suitable LED lighting products for the project, our expert team completed an on-site survey. They then used the data, along with our industry experience of similar projects, to design a lighting plan that would best serve their needs and objectives in replacing all light fittings throughout the facility. As always, the Lumineux quote was supported with estimated savings to enable Blackrow Engineering to make an informed decision.
Speaking about his first experience of using Lumineux, Blackrow Engineering's Commercial Director Barry Taylor said: "I was shocked initially at the scale of the Lumineux business in terms of expertise and product range; their innovation for specific applications is excellent. Now that I've had first hand dealings with them, I expect to see us working together on other projects in the future."
