Newey & Eyre opens flagship green branch

Electrical wholesaler Newey & Eyre has opened a new branch in Sheffield, which has been designed and built to be the flagship energy efficient and environmentally friendly facility for the company.

Newey & Eyre opens flagship green branch

The company has had a presence in the city since 1972, but made the decision to relocate to the purpose built premises which will now provide a more spacious and flexible layout and improved facilities for customers.

Simon Kitchen, cluster manager for Newey & Eyre Sheffield, said: "As a company, we offer a wide range of energy efficient products which help our customers and in turn, the end user, to keep their energy costs low while at the same time reducing their carbon footprint.

"As well as giving us improved and more effective facilities, we wanted the new branch to be as green as possible, so when the building was specified we made sure all the very latest techniques and equipment were selected and used. This way, we can demonstrate today’s technology and best practice to those in the electrical trade who are seeking the best solutions for their customers."

Some of the innovations featured in the new Sheffield branch include movement and daylight sensors, alongside special low wattage tubes throughout the warehouse and offices to reduce energy usage. Metering packs are also being used to monitor the electrical output of the building throughout the day to enable energy consumption to be optimised.

Key products installed include Cooper Lighting’s RXD, which the company describes as the first truly viable LED alternative to a traditional fluorescent downlight, providing an excellent energy efficient solution. RXD offers energy savings of up to 62% without compromising on the correct levels or quality of light.

Also installed are selected products from Cooper’s Moduspec range, which features lighting controls and energy management options to ensure maximum efficiency. In addition, Modulay DI architectural luminaires provide a combination of direct and indirect light for a wide variety of modern working environments.

John Hogan, chief executive of Newey & Eyre, said: "We’re promoting the new Sheffield building as our flagship ‘green’ branch and our intention is to adopt many of the innovative products and techniques in our other branches as practicable. This reflects our company’s commitment to the ‘Bright Green Choice’ initiative for our customers and to reducing energy consumption across our network.

"Many people don’t realise how much energy can be saved by changing even a few of the products and equipment installed in a building to more efficient alternatives. We would invite electricians and contractors to pay a visit to the branch for advice on energy saving techniques and carbon footprint reduction, and to have the opportunity of seeing the technology in action for themselves."
