    Shelbourne Reynolds Engineering Ltd is a well-known British company specializing in the design and manufacture of farm machinery. The company was established back in 1972 and now operates from a 90,000 square feet factory on a 5 acre site in rural Stanton near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, England.

    The facility currently employs 120 people and utilizes some of the most sophisticated manufacturing equipment including: CNC machine centers, laser steel cutting machines and one of the UK’s largest powder coat paint facilities.

    Energy costs represent a significant financial overhead for Shelbourne Reynolds. So, in 2012 the directors of the company decided to investigate what could be done to minimise the effect of ever-increasing heating and electricity bills.

    We have a very large site comprising multiple buildings, so heating costs are high. That is why we wanted a system that would help us save fuel and cut bills.” Explained Garry Bloomfield, their Procurement and Contract manager. (more…)

    Smurfit Kappa is one of the world’s leading producers of paper-based packaging, operating in 32 countries – 21 in Europe, and 11 in the Americas – with around 41,000 employees.
    The company focuses on producing corrugated packaging, with their operations supported by a strong network of container board mills. They also have leading positions in several other market segments including solid board and solid board packaging and graphic board.
    One of Smurfit Kappa’s key policies is that corrugated plants need to be close to customers (generally no more than 250 to 300 kilometres, due to the cost of transportation). Hence, the group has numerous facilities and sites spread across the UK and operating relatively independent from each other.
    Smurfit Kappa’s Gosport site is a part of the Smurfit Kappa South group. It comprises three buildings, namely the main factory/office complex, a smaller engineering warehouse and a despatch facility.
    The three buildings used to be fitted with old and inefficient heating systems that had become too expensive to maintain and run. “For this reason, back in 2013, we decided to upgrade our entire heating system. We realized that this was also the perfect opportunity to install an energy management system that would give us better control over our heaters and also lower our energy-related costs” said Paul Duggan, their Site Manager for Smurfit Kappa Gosport.

    Established for over 30 years, Sealey Power Products is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of workshop tools and equipment, primarily for use in an automotive environment.

    The company sells to over 70 countries worldwide, its full product line targeting a vast range of markets and applications. Sealey Power Products has a very strong network of distributors and manages all of its commercial operations from its headquarters in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

    Located on a sprawling industrial park and employing 300 members of staff, Sealey Power Products relies on 2 gas-fired boilers to power its central heating and hot water systems.

    In early 2012, higher energy bills triggered by rising energy costs and the heating system’s age and limitations persuaded the company’s management to start looking for a “solution to deliver more control and enhanced visibility over the central heating and hot water systems” said Iain Whitmore, the Facilities Manager of Sealey.

    Around a year ago, the company started considering the implementation of an energy-saving system at their headquarters in Lincoln, that houses around 150 members of staff. Lindum’s Facilities Manager, Mr. Warren Glover, recalls that the company’s main target, at the time, was to “enable cost savings” and “streamline the functionality of the ambient heating system”.
