In November 2017 Gary Newth, Director of Devine Engineering, registered his interest in Rexel’s Energeasy retrofit programme.
Devine Engineering makes everything "from tent pegs to bridges” but they specialise in attachments for the forestry industry. It's heavy and challenging work that needs a good standard of lighting. It also demands light fittings that can handle the constant dust from grinding and welding, as well as the temperature extremes in a large unlined workshop in Taupo.
The energy audit was carried out by Rexel. After seeing the results Devine Engineering went ahead with a new energy-efficient lighting system, including rugged and reliable LED highbays that reduced glare in the workshop space.
The Department of Conservation in Dunedin was looking to move into refurbished offices, but there was a problem.
