Venture Lighting Europe’s high performance industrial luminaires have been used to upgrade the lighting at two depots owned by vehicle maintenance and repair company, Marshall Fleet Solutions.

Over 50 of Venture’s 150W Highbay Professional luminaires were used across the two sites to upgrade the company’s lighting scheme from 400W Metal Halide lamps to help achieve the company’s aim to reduce its energy consumption. By replacing the lighting with Venture’s LED luminaires, Marshall Fleet Solutions are expected to receive over £7,000, approximately 66%, in annual energy cost savings, which also significantly reduces the carbon footprint of the two sites. Venture’s 150W Highbays were specified due to their competitive price and ability to meet the energy saving requirements that Marshall Fleet Solutions were aiming to achieve.


Marshall Fleet Solutions has grown to become the UK’s largest independent commercial vehicle servicing companies and has 11 depots across the country, which are used for maintenance and servicing of its customers’ vehicles.

The new lighting schemes across the two depots in Garforth and Salford, were designed and specified by Luminous Solutions Ltd, a key partner of Venture Lighting., and were installed by electrical contractors GWR Electrical & Data Comms Ltd, who are both also working to upgrade the lighting to Venture’s LED luminaires across other sites owned by Marshall Fleet Solutions. The lighting schemes were designed by Luminous Solutions to 300 lux AVE which is in line with the latest BS EN 12464 regulations on the lighting of work places and the requirement for general vehicle servicing, repair and inspection.

Since installing Venture’s LED Highbays, the lighting across the two depots has noticeably improved and now provides a bright white light to offer workers a better and clearer working environment. The Venture LED Highbay Professional luminaires also offer a significantly improved life of up to 50,000 hours which eliminates the need for regular lamp replacement and maintenance, which can be disruptive to operations when replacing or fixing. The enhanced lifetime of the luminaires also reduces the likelihood of lamp failure which may compromise the overall light levels across the depots.

Venture’s LED Highbay Professional luminaires have proved to be a popular and beneficial product for industrial applications such as maintenance workshops, due to the quality of light and low energy consumption. The 150W LEDs have a high output of 15,000 lumens and system efficacy of 100 lumens per circuit watt to ensure that a high power, quality light is emitted at a lower energy rate than traditional light sources. The luminaire comes with a 120° beam angle as standard and can be adapted using a range of reflector accessories to offer 60°, 70° and 90° angles depending on the light distribution required.

Designed to replicate the classic highbay style, Venture’s Highbay Pro is IP65 rated with a robust aluminium casing, combined with cold forged heat sink technology to delivery excellent heat dissipation. Finished with a polycarbonate lens to make it suitable for the most demanding industrial applications.
