Parotec Solutions

We are helping Manchester’s Parotec Solutions enjoy better quality of light in their warehouse and achieve real energy savings.

The challenge

Stoneclough-based Parotec Solutions designs and manufactures bespoke cases and foam protective solutions. Their foam fabrication facilities enable their vastly experienced team to create designs for protection and outstanding aesthetic appeal, for a huge array of applications and variety of clients.

Therefore, there is a requirement for high quality lighting, incorporating appropriate visibility and accurate colour rendition, throughout their design, manufacturing and warehouse facilities.

The solution

Step One – Complete a Site Audit

We offered Parotec a free site audit and submitted a business proposal to demonstrate savings from the recommended upgrade; replacing existing lighting with the appropriate LED fittings, ensuring better quality of light throughout the warehouse, and better inventory control.

Our calculations showed they could achieve a Savings Percentage of 69.27% per year on their electricity bills.

Step Two – Funding and Finance

Greenlite arranged the finance to fund the complete installation, in addition, the customer qualified for The Carbon Trust Green Business Fund who were able to contribute 15% toward the cost of the project. Parotec Solutions’ new lighting scheme would pay for itself and they would effectively be ‘cash positive’ from day one.

Step Three – The Installation

The installation was completed in three days by one of our in-house installation teams causing minimal disruption to Parotec’s working activities. 

The outcome

  • Better quality of light levels throughout the warehouse
  • Better stock inventory due to visibility
  • Cash positive energy efficiency savings
  • Carbon Trust full funding
  • Durable fixtures supported with 5 year warranties on parts and labour

It’s great, everyone can see better
