New Lighting System for KTS Wire

Replacing poor, inefficient lighting can not only save a company money, it can reduce its carbon footprint and improve health and safety in the work environment – as KTS Wire found out earlier this year.

The company

Leeds-based business KTS Wire is a leading manufacturer of plain carbon, alloy and stainless steel, rolled and shaped wires. With knowledge and skills developed over more than 50 years, the company exports to 30-plus countries worldwide.

An extreme job

As part of a programme of energy efficiency, KTS Wire contacted AES after the company was recommended by a supplier.

Fitting new lighting systems is all in a day’s work for AES, but this was one of the most extreme cases to date, due to the number of lights and the age of the existing fittings.

Lighter, brighter LEDs

The first task was to remove 105 existing 400W sodium light fittings. These were then replaced by 57 x 144W LED light fittings and 48 x 216W LED fittings. The job was signed off in August 2016.

The difference in the lighting level was dramatic, as you can see from the before and after images, which have not been edited in any way. The dull orange glow of the old lighting was replaced by the bright white light of the LED units, which transformed the factory.

























Major savings

As well as providing stronger, better lighting, the new LED lights are estimated to save the company around 60% on its energy bills, which translates to approximately £20,000 a year.


With health and safety, environmental and cost benefits, the new LED lighting has transformed the working environment at KTS Wire.

Engineering Manager Alex Long commented: “AES came highly recommended, and certainly lived up to their reputation. They would be my first choice for all future large-scale electrical work here at KTS.”
