In most factories, good light levels are key to ensuring product quality and consistency, and as one of the leaders in the global packaging market, Mayr-Melnhof Packaging is no exception.
The company’s factory in Deeside relies on consistent, daylight colour lighting to render product colours accurately, particularly in the printing and inspection areas of the site.
Industrial environments can also be high-risk, so health and safety is also of crucial importance. To comply with MMP's controlled environment procedures the light fittings are encapsulated to avoid contamination in the workplace
When MMP got in touch with us, they were looking for a reliable, no hassle and flexible lighting maintenance partner who could ensure that the lighting was consistent and compliant. At Greenlite, this is where we can really add value – we always start with the customer brief, and then come up with a solution to fit their needs.
We devised a regular planned lighting maintenance schedule that would avoid unnecessary disruption to production activity. So that time is not wasted, we contact MMP every month to see if they need a visit from one of our engineers. If everything’s working as it should, we don’t attend site and we don’t charge – it’s as simple as that.
To achieve longer term cost saving benefits, we are also gradually upgrading the entire site to LED lighting as part of our regular 6 monthly relamping service: This cost-effective way of upgrading the lighting will improve illumination and deliver significant energy savings.
We also set a schedule for Emergency light testing to ensure MMP is always compliant with regulations.
