Schweppes Australia was looking to enhance the appearance of their extensive range of beverages displayed in their branded coolers. Different lighting options were considered and during that process the company came across Ecopoint. With just “middle of the road” knowledge about LED lighting, it was a steep learning curve, but making the decision to change to LED has had numerous benefits for the company.
Schweppes wanted to enhance the appearance of products in their display cabinets, to improve point of sale appeal and increase sales. Reducing service costs were a consideration, as was improving energy efficiency of the cabinets.
Ecopoint began supplying one of the companies who manufacture Schweppes coolers with a range of their refrigeration LED tube lights. Initially, the tubes didn’t have Australian certification, which was a requirement of Schweppes; however that issue was quickly rectified by Ecopoint and the appropriate certification was achieved. The installation of the LED lights has meant that Schweppes goal of maximising the appearance of their product has been achieved. Ecopoint’s LED tubes come in a range of colour options which make it easy to attain the optimum level of illumination, while the excellent directional qualities of LED illumination mean that the front face of the product is well lit, and is more appealing to the consumer. In addition, Schweppes were able to significantly reduce maintenance costs as the LED tubes have at least 3 times longer life than the fluorescent tubes they replaced while also reducing the lighting electricity cost by more than 50%.
All of Schweppes Australia’s 1, 2 and 3 door coolers utilise Ecopoint’s D, C & H series tubes.
“Without hesitation, we recommend Ecopoint. Since switching to an LED solution we have enjoyed many benefits, the most important being that our drinks on display look great. We also enjoy lower levels of energy consumption and a better quality of light, while their long life means that our service costs are down. The Ecopoint team are great to deal with too. Any time we have had an issue or problem, Ecopoint has responded quickly to ensure a satisfactory solution is found.”

Chilli Marketing had been told of Ecopoint and knew enough about the company and the quality and range of LED lighting solutions they offered that when the time came for them to design and build a new office space; they knew who they wanted to use to light their new, spacious office.
Chilli’s plan was to build an open plan, creative working space. The environment had to be fresh and provide as much of a ‘natural light’ as possible. They were aware of the unpredictable nature of fluorescent lighting – how it can provide a harsh light, can flicker and takes a while to warm up – and they wanted to avoid that. It was also important to Chilli that any lighting utilised fit their image and suited the aesthetics of their new office.
By looking to an LED lighting solution, Chilli avoids all of the issues typically associated with fluorescent use. Chilli’s new office is quite large and they were conscious of maintaining operational and overhead costs. By selecting Ecopoint's LED panel lights, they benefit from a reduced power bill, while maintenance costs have also been reduced as these LED lights have a life expectancy of 50,000 hours.

“Without hesitation, we are actively recommending Ecopoint’s lighting solutions. The lighting in our office is beautifully bright and expansive, and has become a key feature of our creative space. Working with Ecopoint was great; we were amazed at how easily we could customize lighting solutions, from panel size to colour; to tone and the perception of warmth. Our lighting has become a positive talking point, with clients and visitors to the office frequently commenting on the pleasant, natural qualities of our lighting.”

Inspire Group was introduced to Ecopoint and the notion of LED lighting in August 2012. The relationship was quickly established and it wasn’t long before the decision was made by Inspire Group to adopt an LED lighting solution for their Wellington office space.
Inspire Group found they were constantly having to replace their old metal halide light fittings, which, as well as being an inconvenience in a busy office, is an expense.
One of Inspire Group’s associates mentioned the benefits of LED lighting; including their ultra long life and energy efficiency. When it became apparent just how many less light bulbs would need changing, Inspire Group were sold!
Following the initial recommendation that LED lighting be considered, a meeting was set up. Ecopoint assessed the space and considered what their specific requirements were. Ecopoint then provided advice as to the best LED lighting solution for that space.
In no time at all, LED lights in the form of High Bay fittings were installed, creating a modern and industrial look for a contemporary office space.
Ecopoint’s 100W High Bay fitting with clear prismatic diffuser.
We have found Ecopoint to be very easy to deal with. When there are issues or questions they are always quick to offer solutions and provide advice. Switching to an LED lighting solution has been great for us. We enjoy lower power bills, less maintenance through not having to change bulbs constantly, and crucially, we enjoy a better quality of light in our office”

If you recall I was visiting Wellington over the weekend and as time allowed I made a point of visiting NW Newlands, Porirua and Thorndon. I had hoped to get the Chaffers but time did not allow for this to occur. I had to take some discreet pictures which I have shared with Robin yesterday on my return for Porirua and Thorndon primarily of their food halls. Thorndon has always been well presented but I felt the LED’s lifted their presentation level even further as did Porirua. My son had lived in Porirua for the majority of the last seven years so I had shopped at Porirua regularly and always found the store dull. I was blown away with the improvement at Porirua with the LED’s in their food hall. These facts are very encouraging for the new year!!
