SDC Trailers saves energy and money with Aura T5 Long Life


SDC Trailers is one of the largest trailer manufacturers in Europe and the UK and Ireland’s leading manufacturer of trailers to the road haulage and logistics industries. They specialise in curtainsiders, box vans, tippers and skeletals. SDC trailers choose to replace their factory’s existing lighting installation with Aura T5 fluorescents lamps and lighting control to save money and energy.


Maximize energy savings

SDC Trailers was looking for a supplier that could meet to their two main demands:
– The warehouse is illuminated 24/24 and 5 days a week, SDC Trailers needed to maximize energy savings. The solution offered by Procure LED to associate Aura T5 Long Life and sensors was the best choice to save money and optimize lighting efficiency. The factory is now illuminated depending on the needs and the requirements of the space.

Increase visual comfort

– Still SDC Trailers would save money without compromising lighting levels and visual comfort. Indeed, it was crucial that the employees had the best lighting level during the day and night. With Procure LED Long Life, employees benefit from increased comfort at work.

A good rate of return on Investment

Procure LED solution covers all SDC Trailers needs in lighting and enables to save a large part of their lighting budget. In implementing sensors using daylight harvesting and occupancy the return on investment was achieved in less than 16 months and the savings are of over £90,000 per year. “Aura Long Life lamps is the best option for us”, says Connor Ward – SDC Property & Energy Manager.
