Thorn proves ‘where there’s a Wilko, there’s a way’

Thorn have delivered massive reductions in energy and maintenance costs for Wilko with a full turnkey lighting solution.

Wilko is one of the UK's fastest growing high street retailers with over 380 stores that greet more than 4 million customers every week. Sustainability and energy efficiency are high on their list of priorities, as is the aim of building a sustainable business culture which takes responsibility for its actions and supports a more sustainable solution for everyone they deal with and everything
they touch.

When it came to a lighting solution for the Wilko estate Thorn came up with a concept product specifically designed for use across the estate which, after discussion, became a CAD drawing and an engineering sample was constructed. With agreement over the luminaire, Thorn and Wilko expanded the proposal into a full turnkey lighting solution comprising lighting design, installation, extended warranty and maintenance.

Wilko’s independent energy calculations and site readings proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Thorn could provide a lighting scheme that met all of the criteria for the company’s stringent requirements and strict environmental ethos.
