Kerry Logistics, Manchester

A giant in the logistics industry, Kerry Logistics was founded in 1981 and continue to provide freight forwarding and supply chain solutions internationally.
Following their free CEMA Lighting audit, Kerry Logistics approached CEMA Lighting with a focus on improving lighting levels in racking and operating areas in their facility in Manchester.

Due to the facility changing uses, the layout of the lighting did not work and needed a complete overhaul. The lower racking areas were poorly illuminated by 54 400W Sodium Highbays. With the intention of vastly improving the light levels in these areas, CEMA Installations replaced these 54 fittings with 100 of our market-leading 190+ Lm/W Highbays. The result was a dramatic improvement of levels and quality of light in the operating area. Despite the significant increase fittings, CEMA Lighting’s solution still slashed 22% off their previous annual energy costs.

Working closely with Kerry Logistics, our Lighting specialists advised that a PIR sensor would further reduce the quantity of wasted energy. This enabled a further reduction of 40% in operating costs – resulting in a total percentage saving of 63%! Simon Gillibrand (Transport Manager) was thoroughly impressed with the seamless process from consultation to installation and said that the results speak for themselves.
