Marco Engineering


To replace the original under performing and inefficient metal halide lighting on a ‘one for one’ basis to increase lighting levels whilst reducing energy and service costs.

Marco Engineering is a specialist die making and extrusion company. This refit was particularly challenging due to a requirement to suspend at 8.5 metres to clear a crane gantry that runs the length of the building. Strategic Lightings’ ‘Eclipse’ Twin 80 watt T5 fitting [ FPE15280 ] was selected to provide the necessary lumen output required to improve lux levels on floor thus allowing workers to operate equipment safely and efficiently and to inspect finished product for QC.


Lighting energy savings of 66% were achieved along with a 33% increase in lighting levels on floor and significant ongoing service and maintenance cost reductions.
