    Flagship office for Italian manufacturer

    Greenford, United Kingdom

    The client is an Italian manufacturer of branded chocolate and confectionery products and it is the third biggest chocolate producer and confectionery company in the world.  It includes 38 trading companies, 18 factories, approximately 40,000 employees and produces around 365,000 tons of Nutella each year. The leading confectionary manufacturer is a family owned company, and this is reflected in their belief in strong people values. Their ethos is to work together to reach their challenging goals, but in a supportive environment. 

    The client required a full re-design of lighting that utilized the existing infrastructure.  Employee comfort, higher lux levels and energy savings were the main priorities for the manufacturer.  As the flagship office in the UK, image and the ability to attract the best talent in the industry is paramount.  The partnership between Signify and Powercor led the way in creating a solution that met all their needs.


    The confectionary manufacturer understood very quickly that replacing their traditional lighting with simple LED retrofits was not enough.  A full Dynalite controls system was designed to offer them not only increased energy savings, but feedback on emergency lighting and scene settings in key areas of the building.


    Impact on end user

    For the manufacturer, their employees are critical to their success, therefore having the feedback that the working environment has improved immensely and that their employees are proud to be working in a much greener building means that they can continue to support their ethos.


    The professionalism of Powercor combined with the quality of Signify has created a great lighting experience for our employees, customers, and partners.  We are very pleased with the results and the working relationship and communication from the whole team."
