One of the UK’s leading LED lighting specialists, Hilclare, has delivered a lighting refit at KDM’s offices which will secure significant savings and reduced energy consumption for the
brand. Lighting specialists, Hilclare, were called in to the KDM offices to provide a new option to the mixture of standard tube lighting and down lighters located within the factory and offices. The main drivers for this change to LED lighting were to create cost savings, reduce maintenance and energy consumption.
National Sales Manager at Hilcalre, Stuart Clark
“It’s been a pleasure to work on this project at KDM. We have provided a lighting refit and importantly we have reduced their power consumption from 19KW down to 9KW. This reduction in power consumption will ensure that KDM see significant savings generated from the introduction of these lights.”
Process & Implementation Manager at KDM Group, Graeme Thomson said:
“We’re extremely pleased with Hilclare’s level of service, from the sales teams scoping visit right through to their support post installation. The scoping visit was extremely thorough, and we were given a clear indication of what was needed and the potential savings this would generate. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Hilclare or using them in the future for any of our own projects.”

Spokesperson on behalf of the school
“We are proud to have been commissioned for this project. Bringing schools up to date with the latest lighting technologies is a delicate balancing act between funding and classroom closure to facilitate low-impact installation. The installation took just over four weeks and was conducted during the summer period to ensure minimum disruption. It’s anticipated that the payback on investment will be in just four years, and by specifying products with up to a five-year guarantee, further savings via a maintenance free system will also be enjoyed.”
