Lighting that lasts: part 1

Our factory

As a manufacturer of long lasting luminaires, our outlook is always towards the future, which is why we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously. In 2014 we moved to our new purpose-built BREEAM ‘Excellent’ accredited facility and in addition to this we have been carrying out a programme of energy reductions in the factory since 2010. By making the best use of our resources we’ve achieved a 38% reduction in annual electricity use and 39% reduction in gas use. We have also reduced our annual fuel consumption by over 40% using our ’round trip’ programme ensuring our vehicles follow a direct delivery route to minimise any wasted fuel.
