The UK’s leading independent provider of freight and logistics required an LED lighting upgrade throughout their site in Southampton. The Kyman Ledtex team were able to upgrade the lighting in their main warehouse and surrounding areas.
The Managing Director, Richard Lambourne needed a immediate and long term solution with assurance that the products would be of a high quality standard. Through an extensive site audit Kyman Ledtex’s product specialist recommended KYMAN® Heavy Duty 140W Flood lights to replace the inefficient 400W Fluorescent Highbays. This worked due to KYMAN® Floods being high performance luminaires that use premium grade multi-core LED’s for optimum light output.
For other areas, KYMAN® tubes and bulkheads were recommended to keep the lighting looking uniform and aesthetically pleasing. Throughout walkways and in the canteen Kyman Ledtex installed Single T8 SMD Tubes which improved the overall lighting within the whole site considerably. All KYMAN® lights have a high powered multi-core light engine and cutting edge driver giving an expected lamp life of up to 50,000 hours. There is no warm up time with the LED units and the lifespan is not affected by switching on or off.
By upgrading to LED, Meachers Global Logistics benefitted from not only the improved working conditions, but they were also delivered huge reductions in electricity costs, carbon emissions and maintenance savings for future years to come.
Our KYMAN® LED Lighting upgrade enabled Meachers Global to save a substantial £18,141 from their yearly electricity bills. We were able to calculate these savings by auditing the current fluorescent lighting, wattage usage and Kw cost and then compare this with the costings when considering LED lighting. Overall a successful upgrade completed.
“We needed the lighting levels throughout our site to be more efficient and Kyman Ledtex were able to offer a full smooth service. The effective project management led to a successful installation and we are certainly impressed at how helpful the aftercare service of the Kyman Ledtex team was. We upgraded our lighting in our warehousing, offices and surrounding staff areas, managing to save over £18,000 on electricity annually. We had no problems at all with the project and the lighting itself is brilliant.”
Richard Lambourne, Director
“Working with Kyman Ledtex has been a very positive experience; I am particularly pleased with the savings that we are making. I have had feedback from colleagues in the warehouse to say that the lighting is a vast improvement. We are much happier with the lighting in the warehouse now, especially from a safety point of view and employees are finding it much easier to read things such as packaging thanks to the KYMAN® products being specified.”
