Pet food supplier fetches energy savings with EcolightingUK08 October 2019

EcolightingUK has recently installed new LED lighting at the Butcher’s Pet Care warehouse facility in Crick, Northamptonshire.

Butcher’s Pet Care specialising in the production of foods for cats and dogs. The company has had its entire site retrofitted using Ecolighting’s LED luminaires, of which 647 were installed internally and 107 externally.

Butcher’s Pet Care set a brief of a zero cost (zero capital outlay) project which was facilitated through Ecolighting’s new lease purchase offering. The solution meant that the company wouldn’t pay any capital upfront and would just pay a monthly lease purchase cost, which was outweighed by the monthly savings.

The company was paying around £12,000 per annum just maintaining its existing system. With the difference between the lease purchase monthly payment and the monthly energy saving standing at £3,400 per month, the energy savings with the new LED lighting are said to be over £40,000 per annum.

Andy Pynn, electrical and projects engineer at Butcher’s Pet Care, comments: “Ecolighting made a number of visits whilst we looked at various options and nothing was too much trouble for them. Once the order was placed, the project team came on site and produced an in-depth installation plan so that we could schedule and restrict access to areas of the shopfloor with lots of notice. Out of hours work was included. The installation team worked to food quality standards at all times and were very friendly and efficient. We were also pleased with the good quality documentation supplied upon project completion.”

Chosen for the installation at the Butcher’s Pet Care site are the Pegasus LED, Sapphire LED and Osram/Ledvance LED floodlights, as well as the Medusa LED streetlight and Altos emergency lighting system.

Pynn continues: “The higher lighting levels across the factory now easily meets the health and safety requirements and the lighting is now running at much lower energy consumption, therefore saving us money. Our lighting levels have improved and are keeping shopfloor employees happy and our energy consumption is down which is keeping the accountants happy, so we are very pleased with the end result.”
