Rockwell Collins Case Study

Rockwell Collins Case Study

Rockwell Collins UK is part of the British aerospace and defence community since 1955, Rockwell Collins UK is an approved British Defence contractor providing products, subsystems and complete integrated solutions for fixed- and rotarywing aircraft, as well as naval and land platforms.

Rockwell Collins UK in Reading, West Berkshire contacted Kyman to establish a new innovative lighting solution to reduce electricity, maximise energy savings and to improve their current lighting in their offices and warehouse.

Kyman Ledtex were able to provide a full site survey, an energy saving report and a full lighting installation to present to Rockwell Collins to facilitate accurate savings.

In the offices, KYMAN® LED ceiling panels along with non-maintained emergency kits were implemented which from the watts alone, there was a significant transformation and in the warehouse KYMAN® low profile highbay’s, the fittings were like for like and we used a colour temperature of 5000k throughout.

By upgrading their lights to LED, Rockwell Collins noticed a substantial difference in their lighting from day one. Kyman Ledtex ensured a smooth installation and met the client’s needs promptly with minimal disruption to the working environment.

“As part of our Carbon and Energy reduction I wanted to replace the lighting in our Burgess Hill Office to LED but was swamped with many different products and solutions. I approached Kyman Ledtex as they were part of the Carbon Trust scheme and offered a British Built product. From day one we received an excellent service and received a comprehensive assessment highlighting accurate monthly savings, what our return of investment would be and an
annual reduction of CO2 Emissions. With less than a 2 year buy back and annual Co2 reduction of 51,908 KG the decision to proceed was an easy one.

Kyman Ledtex allowed us to take a variety of products to trial in our office and gain staff feedback on what lighting
units to install. Throughout we were in constant contact to ensure that install went smoothly and without any business disruption.

We are delighted with the result – a brighter, smarter office and a significant energy and carbon footprint saving at the same time.

I would have no hesitation in calling Kyman Ledtex again for any future requirements.”
