Case study I

One comprehensive industry project in the field of LED conversion is surely the lighting plan and technical equipment project realized with our partner CDS, in which custom light planning and technical equipment was provided for Pizza Wagner (Nestlé).

As well as the areas to be newly equipped within the scope of the project, such as warehouses and logistics halls, alongside parking lot lighting, special attention had to be paid to requirements for hygienic LED lighting suitable for use in the food production sector.

With LED lights from “made in Germany” producer CDS GmbH, which are certified for use in food production, we were not only able to successfully meet all industry-specific requirements in full but also guarantee a long-term contribution to increased efficiency through lower energy costs and a reduction in lighting failures.
