Nualight has completed a deal to supply LED lighting technology in freezers and ice-cream cabinets across 800 Co-operative stores in the UK.
Nualight’s Porto lighting will be installed in the doors in low-temperature merchandising cabinets and its Alto canopy lighting will be installed in ice-cream display cabinets across Co-operative stores.
Alex Pitman, Energy and Carbon Manager at The Co-operative Group, “The motivation for introducing Nualight’s LED lighting solutions to our stores arose primarily from our unique commitment to sustainable retailing practices.
“Nualight’s LED lighting will significantly reduce the energy consumption of our freezers and ice-cream cabinets while generally improving brightness and colour to better showcase our frozen food products. We are confident the new lighting will increase customer footfall to these displays.”
Dr Liam Kelly, CEO of Nualight, said: “Our lighting delivers significant energy savings of over 70% when compared with fluorescent technology and it is also maintenance-free. We’re delighted that our technology can play an important part in The Co-Operative Group’s ambitious ethos of responsible retailing.
The Nualight transaction with The Co-operative follows a similar Nualight deal with Tesco in the UK last year as well as with the ‘Fresh N Easy’ chain of stores in the USA. Other European retailers using Nualight’s LED technology and expertise include Morrisons, M&S, Sainsbury’s, Migros, Tengelmann and Co-op Switzerland.
