East Lancashire bakery benefits from zero capital expenditure LED lighting

Replacing traditional technology with energy efficient LED lighting from Airis Energy Solutions UK, W H Oddie Ltd were able to realise energy savings of 71%, whilst providing their workforce with a better lit environment in which to work.

A local tradition since 1905, W H Oddie Ltd is a family bakery with over a dozen retail shops around the East Lancashire area. With four generations of the same family in charge, all confectionery is hand finished by skilled local bakers. Their shops offer freshly baked bread, hand crafted confectionery, pies and savouries from the oven, hot soup or cold drinks and a large range of freshly made sandwiches.

Zero Capital Expenditure

As part of an ongoing desire to cut costs and improve their carbon footprint, Oddie’s employed Airis to upgrade to LED lighting in their bakery and head office based in Nelson, Lancashire. They opted for our zero capital expenditure lighting solution, meaning Airis finance the installation and any ongoing maintenace.

Annual savings

The following annual savings will be realised as a result of the project.

71% energy savings


21 tonnes carbon

Airis have recently replaced the lighting in our bakery and head offices. There were no upfront costs to our business, and we are very pleased with the result.

The installation team had to be very flexible to work around us in our food production areas – we found them to be very obliging.

I would have no qualms about recommending them to other businesses.

Flexible Installation Hours

With no night shifts, Oddie’s traditional bread bakers start at 4am so that the day’s bread is as fresh as possible. Airis worked around the bakery’s busy schedules to ensure the installation did not require any reduction in productivity.
