Symington Foods


Multiple Sites, UK



Project Type:

Design, Supply and Install

As a multi-national food group behind some of the most recognisable food brands, Symington Foods operate from four main UK sites. Following competitive tender, CorEnergy was appointed to assess the existing lighting operating costs and to design and install LED Lighting and controls across the manufacturing and logistics sites, targeting clear financial and environmental benefits which were monitored and achieved.

Case Studies

Project Background

 Having been appointed initially to identify potential energy savings at a large logistics and distribution site, CorEnergy designed a solution which incorporated high efficiency LED mains lighting, complaint emergency lighting and controls which maximised energy savings through occupancy and daylight reductions. A trial was undertaken to capture and monitor energy savings, which once proven, CorEnergy was awarded the contract to upgrade the entire site.

12 months after the initial contract, with the full energy savings achieved and zero failures, CorEnergy was awarded the contract to upgrade the food production sites with food grade luminaires. CorEnergy was the Main Contractor and Principal Designer for the works, managing a multi-site rollout.

“The way CorEnergy worked with us made securing capital investment for the project straightforward. Their proposals were highly detailed and the solution they selected to upgrade the lighting and controls was the most impressive. Three years since installation and we have not had a single failure. Importantly they monitored the project performance annually to ensure it  achieved the energy savings targeted. I highly recommend them.”
