John Rothery Wholesale Co. Ltd (now in its 42nd year of growth and reinvestment) combines essential energy savings with a new KYMAN® LED lighting scheme. Everyone involved in the upgrade agrees it is a big improvement to their recently purchased new warehousing and office complex in Waterlooville, Hampshire. The new facility is significantly larger than their previous premises, covering a total of 32,500 sq ft across two acres.

Bob Rothery (Managing Director) invited Kyman Ledtex to put forward a lighting solution to reduce electricity and maintenance costs across the site. Kyman Ledtex came up with the solution to replace the current inefficient T12 8ft twin fluorescent fittings throughout the warehouse with KYMAN® 6FT Twin LED Batten fittings. This proved extremely effective as John Rothery’s energy usage was reduced by nearly 75%.

The new LED tubes vastly improved the lighting levels throughout the entire warehouse. A ‘like for like’ replacement program was implemented throughout the offices and corridors. High quality KYMAN® fittings including SMD LED frosted tubes, G24 lamps and A60 fittings were installed with the latest super bright LED chips integrated into each fitting.

A spokesman at KYMAN says: “We specified our 6FT Twin LED batten fittings as replacements due to their high build/light output quality and maximum efficiency – an ideal solution for Rothery’s windowless warehouse.”

KYMAN® products produce higher lumens per watt than other potential lighting solution, thus making them an excellent direct replacement for any previously fitted lighting product. Once the upgrade had been completed, the overall savings John Rothery were making was substantial. Over 40,700KG of CO2 is being saved per annum along with a £9,400 annual electricity bill reduction.

Kyman Ledtex ensured a smooth installation and met the clients needs promptly with little disturbance to the client’s daily timetable. Overall, John Rothery’s lighting across their site is brighter, offering employees an enhanced working
environment. Additionally, John Rothery Wholesale Co. Ltd. have been able to lighten their carbon footprint and save money all at the same time.

“We would just like to say we are very pleased with the service we have received from Kyman Ledtex. The installation of our Led Lighting project with Kyman LED went very smoothly and we were told we would save a set amount off our electricity bill and this has found to be true. The after sales service is second to none. We had a minor problem and Kyman came to see us almost immediately and solved it. We would recommend KYMAN® products and team if you are looking to change your lighting system to LED.”
