Tiger Trailers is a privately owned, family business and is rapidly growing into one of the UK’s leading commercial vehicle body and trailer manufacturer, Tiger has and continues to attract a high profile and diverse range of customers, from the haulage, logistics, retail and parcel sectors of the industry.
Already using the latest state of the art equipment, the management team engaged Energy-efficient lighting specialists Ecolighting to give advice on the potential energy saving opportunities in their Winsford Facility.
Following several meetings, Ecolighting were awarded a contract to remove the previously installed metal halide fittings and install LED lighting across the site.

“It was the energy saving that was the key driver, we only committed to a 50% reduction in energy use, in practice it was nearer 70% resulting in annual savings of circa £70,000, If we had of stayed with the old system, this annual saving opportunity would have been lost forever”
