What we did

Reduced carbon emissions while improving customer experience

Brooks Timber and Building Supplies Ltd is one of the leading timber and builder merchants in the Republic of Ireland. Brooks operates in seven locations around Ireland including Dublin, Cork, Galway, Tullamore and Sligo. Brooks partnered with eLight to deliver a lux level lighting upgrade across all seven stores.

Paying close attention to the customer experience throughout the stores, Brooks place great emphasis on the aesthetics of the stores. As a result of the LED lighting upgrade, the overall customer experience has been greatly enhanced by the increased lighting coverage. As a conscious company, Brooks are delighted to save money on energy bills but equally impressed with the reduced carbon emissions from LED lighting.

Testimonial

“Lighting is an important part of our business. We want to show our products looking their best. Inside and outside our stores we use a lot of lighting. eLight installed over 1000 lights in our stores. In the weeks since that work has been completed we have already saved thousands of Euro on energy costs. When we can cut costs without cutting quality and service, that means we can improve competitiveness and strengthen our business.”
