UK Chemical Firm Sees the Light

Organic chemical manufacturer Robinson Brothers is reaping multiple benefits of Dialight LED lighting supplied by specialist product distributor Scattergood & Johnson.

The West Midlands-based company, one of the largest independent manufacturers of specialist organic chemicals in the UK, originally planned to use the system only as emergency lighting.

But managers expanded that brief after quickly appreciating the many advantages that the low-energy, highly-durable Dialight fittings could bring.

“We were intending to install the fittings in the centre of one of our processing plants and attach them to an emergency lighting power pack, which Scattergoods also supplied,” says Robinson Brothers’ electrical manager Glenn Hodgkisson.

“However, we then realised that they could also be used as main lighting, automatically switching to the back-up supply in the event of a power failure.”

He adds: “The fittings provide much better lighting - more like bright daylight. The staff think it’s great and now they’re asking why we haven’t had it before!”

As a result, the building’s old industrial fluorescent lighting has been rendered largely redundant. Glenn says: “We still use it, but when the tubes fail we won’t be replacing them.

“I can also see us installing Dialight in at least nine other plants on our 11-acre site on a phased basis over the coming years.”

Initially attracted by the system’s low power consumption and five-year warranty, Glenn was convinced when he saw it in action: “Scattergoods gave us a highly-effective demonstration - it was a very bright, white light.

“The fittings have been installed for some time now and have given no trouble at all. In fact they have delivered everything we hoped for - and more.”
