Hussmann and Sainsbury's see the light

IRISH LED lighting specialist Nualight has entered into a 'co-development alliance' with US refrigerated display case manufacturer Hussmann in a deal reported to be worth $100m. The announcement follows a partnership deal signed at the end of February with Sainsbury's to supply lighting in refrigerated cases across all new and refurbished stores.
Mike Higgins, Hussmann's senior vice president marketing, strategic planning and business development described the alliance as bringing together the innovation and technology development of two leaders who understand merchandising solutions for the food retail industry.

'Our alliance with Nualight fits well, strategically, with our corporate mission to help food retailers sell more products to their customers,' he added.

In the Sainsbury's deal Nualight will supply cutting-edge lighting technologies for low-temperature, medium-temperature and speciality cases in all new stores. As well as enhancing the merchandising impact of the food displays, Nualight's lighting will support the Sainsbury's 20 by 20 Sustainability Plan which includes a target to reduce operational carbon emissions by 30% by 2020. Nualight says its LED lighting will reduce lighting-related energy consumption for Sainsbury's by 70% in low-temperature cases and by 40% in medium-temperature cases.
