Zumtobel Group to supply British value retailer Wilko with LED lighting solution


The Austrian lighting company has secured a contract worth over EUR 22 million for its efficient LED lighting system. The technology should achieve energy savings of up to 70%. 

The UK retailer chain Wilko is set to illuminate more than 380 stores and two logistics centres with LED lighting solutions from Austria, with over 150,000 bulbs and light management components due for delivery over the next 18 months. All their indoor lighting is due to be converted to LED by the end of 2017.

It was Zumtobel Group's  comprehensive range of services that ultimately helped win it the contract: Wilko will receive a ready-to-go lighting solution that includes lighting planning, installation, maintenance and an extended guarantee. The innovative LED lighting will enable Wilko to achieve energy cost reductions of up to 70%, and all the lights will be swapped (including any ceiling alterations) while the stores remain open. Wilko is also switching to energy-efficient LED lighting in its two logistics centres.

With its brands Thorn, Tridonic, Zumtobel, acdc and Reiss, the Zumtobel Group provides a comprehensive palette of lighting products and services to customers all over the world. In the luminaires and lighting solutions segment Zumtobel is even European market leader. The firm plays a leading role in the global manufacture of hardware and software for lighting systems (LED light sources, LED drivers, sensors and light management) and boasts a global production network, with 14 facilities on four continents and sales offices and partners in 90 countries.
