Ecolighting UK Ltd has recently won an £850,000 contract with Stapleton Tyres to install LED lighting into all of its 11 warehouses around the country – saving the company in excess of 50% energy and CO2 costs, as well as significantly improving light levels.

The full lighting project started following a successful trial with LED lighting at Stapleton Tyres’ Letchworth distribution centre – where Ecolighting had lit it previously with the then energy efficient T5 fluorescent tubes back in 2013.

The scheme was soon followed with the installation of LED lighting to Stapleton Tyres’ newly acquired Peterborough warehouse, which saw the work completed well ahead of schedule.

Says group director Ian Kirkpatrick: “We chose to work with Ecolighting based on our past experience with them, not only providing value for money but also their high customer service levels.

“The team at Ecolighting are incredibly responsive and very flexible if there is a potential issue that could cause delays. They really do focus on customer service and operational needs and are always very professional and efficient.”

For Stapleton Tyres, there were big benefits in switching to energy efficient LED lighting within the context of ESOS, as the lighting provided reductions in energy and carbon footprint – some 1,174 tonnes of CO2 was saved on the company’s carbon footprint.

Kirkpatrick adds: “All but two of our 11 distribution centres have now been completed and in the last three or four months since the first distribution centres were completed in Guildford, Maidstone and Portbury, we have achieved a 50% reduction in energy, which is excellent.”
