GA Pet Food Partners
As a leading UK Pet Food Company, GA was looking to improve energy efficiency and further enhance environmental benefits from its sites. CorEnergy was appointed to design a lighting replacement for a 180,000sf logistics warehouse, the brief was to incorporate integrated smart controls which detect absence, occupancy and daylight dimming, whilst improving lighting levels within high, narrow warehouse racking.
Following a trial of the proposed solution including energy monitoring before and afterwards, a UK made luminaire solution was installed with CorEnergy appointed as Principal Designer and Main Contractor. Over a 12-month period the project energy performance was monitored against a defined baseline to ensure the targeted savings were achieved. The project delivered an 87% electricity reduction whilst increasing lighting levels. With a project net savings of £1.2m from an initial £185,000 capital investment, between 2016 and 2021 zero luminaire failures were reported.
Following the success at the initial site, CorEnergy was appointed to design and supply lighting for a new build, 200,000sf logistics site in 2017.

Design and Build
“We felt that the Site’s lighting was already reasonably efficient but with it being nearly 5 years old we were left with a decision to either replace the existing T5 tubes or to invest in an upgrade to LED. We worked with CorEnergy, a Manchester based lighting company which firstly provided a technical audit of the Site before designing and delivering a completely new lighting scheme for us. As a consequence, the running cost of the Site’s lighting has reduced by 86% to £14,500 from £108,000 annually. This will result in a lifetime saving in excess of £1.2 million from an initial investment of £185,000 whilst saving over 6.2 million kg of CO2.”
