Supplier of retail, commercial and industrial LED lighting, LED Save, have opened the doors to its new mega warehouse in Barton-Upon-Humber.

The move from LED Save’s previous facility in Hull to Humber Road, Barton, means the company will be able to double the value of its stock over the next two years while employing new workers during what has been a challenging economic time.

It’s been described as a ‘win’ for the local economy with LED Save upscaling its production. Currently, low bay lights and emergency packs are sourced from the UK with plans to expand home-based manufacturing in the future.

LED Save’s Managing Director, David Segal, says he’s excited to see the economic benefits of the move for the North Lincolnshire region.

“Here at LED Save, we have always been focused on supporting UK-based manufacturers. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 and high rental costs, one of our main UK-based suppliers folded but we have worked hard to locate another UK-based supplier to keep up with demand.

“Hopefully, with the lockdown slowly lifting and the upscaling of production, we’ll be able to bring additional home-based suppliers on board,” he explained.

No Easy Feat

The transformation of the new warehouse into a purpose-built facility has been nothing short of remarkable.

The 15,000 square-foot space has been completely restored from an engineering workshop to make way for an open-plan design. A 20 tonne overhead travelling crane was removed, all existing lights were replaced with LED lights, a new security system and a jumbo stud high bay partition wall was installed but by far, the biggest challenge was the removal of hazardous materials – around 660 square-metres of asbestos.

With the heavy industrial work complete, the team focused on the beautification of the space – including painting and industrial floor cleaning before the move-in date which took place on July 27th.

Looking Forward to the Future

LED Save’s relocation to Barton will not only be a win for the local economy but customers will also benefit significantly from the increased stock levels and new ranges.

Mr Segal says business owners are looking to reduce long term electricity costs while helping the environment by replacing old inefficient conventional lights in commercial buildings and office spaces with LED lighting.

“LED lighting really is the way of the future and now with our upscaling of production, we’ll be able to meet the needs of the community for many years to come,” he said.
