News & Business Fortec Motorsport Speeds Towards


Energy Efficiency with Toshiba Fortec Motorsport, based in Daventry, Northamptonshire, has had motor racing teams speeding round courses for over 20 years. Steve Lynch, Team Manager for Fortec’s teams has seen accelerated growth at the company and, due to expansion, Lynch decided to split the workshop into two floors by creating a mezzanine level. This meant that new lighting was needed to illuminate the ground floor. Lynch briefly considered installing halogen lighting,


before being recommended Toshiba’s LEDs by the installer. Following successful results in a test area, two large spotlights were installed in each of the workshop bays, over the cars’ engines and chassis, providing ample light for key engineering work. Smaller spotlights were also installed over the workbenches, flooding the surfaces with light to illuminate more intricate equipment maintenance.


Having successfully installed a space-maximising mezzanine level in the main workshop, Fortec is now considering doing the same in another building. As they’ve proven to be ideal for the job, LED light fittings would also be included in this new renovation project.


The first ever UK Philips lighting store has opened its doors. Philips Light Gallery on Westbourne Grove will showcase a selection of Philips’ consumer lighting solutions and stock a number of exclusive lines. With a focus on energy efficient lighting, the store is designed for easy navigation, allowing shoppers to browse by room. The store will showcase lighting for living areas, bathrooms, children’s bedrooms and also outdoor solutions. In addition, a variety of spotlights and downlights will be on display and there will be a dedicated area for the ‘Living Colors’ range, which is designed to encourage people to paint with light to create and enhance the ambience of a home. The store will also offer lighting controls and a range of energy efficient light bulbs.
