A Lincolnshire company is celebrating winning its largest-ever contract.
Specialist LED lighting manufacturer and installer, Procure Direct, has this month been awarded a £1 million project.
The company, which celebrated its 15th birthday last month, has been asked to install LED lighting in more than 100 food stores across the UK.
Work on the 12-month contract will start next month and will see Procure Direct install a bespoke version of the INVO LED SKY Panel into the stores.
“The last few months have been incredible for us,” says Spencer Coffin, director of Procure Direct. “We’ve seen our work with schools increase dramatically as they took advantage of lockdown to bring forward replacement lighting projects. We moved into our new offices and warehouse in Lincoln’s Allenby Industrial Estate and celebrated 15 years in business. We’ve now been awarded our largest ever contract, which is amazing! It’s just a shame there is a non-disclosure clause in the contract so we can’t name the leading food retailer that we are working with.”
Procure Direct started life in Spencer’s front room, with the entrepreneur importing and selling a wide range of innovative lighting and heating products. Over the last 15 years, the company has grown from being a reseller into a manufacturer of LED lighting and far-infrared heating solutions.
This latest contract will see Spencer and his team develop a bespoke type of LED lighting panel, which will offer one of the longest lifespans of any LED panel on the market.
“LED light offers excellent light quality and low running costs, making them very popular indeed,” adds Spencer. “We are doing more and more work with retailers who are looking to create bright and welcoming environments and save money at the same time. LED lights last for years and so as well as low energy use, they don’t need replacing as often as traditional lighting.”
Today, Procure Direct employs 7 people, with an additional two people set to be recruited as a result of the new contract.
Our range of solar powered LED lights comprise of the very latest technology in both LED chips and Solar PV. By using optimised LED and PV cells in our lights we are able to supply commercial LED lighting solutions that will stay lit during the UK winter months.
Easy to install and incredibly efficient, solar powered lighting offers the perfect solution where mains powered lighting isn’t suitable or is just too costly to install.
Procure Direct Ltd was established in 2005 to provide high quality LED products at market-beating prices.
Based in Lincoln, Lincolnshire, we have clients all across the UK. We have worked with organisations such as Lincolnshire County Council, Lincolnshire Police Force, Metsawood, NPower, Mitie, Kier and Heron Foods to name just a few.
