Cost Reduction

There has been a plant at Luton building vehicles since 1905, currently employing 1,400 staff.


The plant assembles Vauxhall, Opel, Peugeot and Citroen vans. The next-generation Vauxhall/Opel Vivaro van will use PSA’s new EMP2 platform, this will allow the factory to also build Peugeot’s Expert van and Citroen Dispatch vans.

BELL Ultra Battens were specified and supplied by PLS Lighting. These were installed by the in-house maintenance teams in the assembly area, body shop, press shop, spray shop and quality control.

James Hall, Facilities Engineer said:
“The Ultra Battens from BELL were the best choice for this project, not only do they earn their name by being ultra reliable, but they also give out light at the correct colour temperature and are economical to run. The BELL units fitted the bill perfectly, offering a bright crisp light to illuminate working areas which is essential for the safety of our employees. Once installed these units are ‘fit and forget” with a life of 50,000 hours and a 5 year guarantee.​"
