NVC Lighting can call upon a range of high-quality products when devising full service solutions for a host of different clients.

The company is the largest lighting manufacturer in China, but NVC UK has been open for business for nearly a decade from a huge production base in Birmingham.

Their premises cover 90,000 sq ft and include two large warehouses and an assembly area, which can cater for special products such as emergency and dimming variants.

A large meeting space is where technicians can meet with customers, who specify their lighting needs to specifications NVC can meet.

Their work out in the field has taken them to schools, aerospace and defence productions bases and even airport hangers.

The David Young Community Academy in Leeds has undergone a gradual lighting refurbishment, with which NVC were heavily involved.

One pressing area was the school’s design technology workshop, which was originally lit with unreliable twin 58w switch-start IP65 fittings, giving off a light level of around 250 lux.

NVC’s Greenland fittings have performed far better and have been fitted, leading to energy savings of 66 per cent (88w per fitting), while increasing the lux to 450.

The school expects electricity savings of about £7,000 each year now the works are complete, through the replacements.

LED lighting continues to be game changing technology within the lighting industry which is also cost effective, from which forward-thinking companies are developing a vast array of uses.

A genuine equivalent to traditional light sources, comparable to 50 Watt Halogen and even 35 Watt Metal Halide bulbs, are now dominating the marketplace.

Such systems can mean huge savings, in comparison, and switching to low energy bulbs is an easy way to reduce carbon emissions.

Demand for LED products has soared as a result and NVC have used theirs to full effect at both Arville Textiles and at Gatwick Airport.


Arville, in West Yorkshire, make high-performance fabrics for aerospace, defence and emergency service applications.

Their factory was mostly lit with tired T8 battens, which were near to the end of their service life, and NVC were approached through their local wholesaler.

Phoenix LED battens were a dramatic improvement because of the choice of sizes and standard and high-output variants.

The replacement battens came with a range of attachments and had steel reflectors, so no light distribution was lost.

NVC’s battens also have a microwave sensor that can identify less populated areas, such as the stores and inspection areas, that fit onto the end of the product.

A challenge awaited NVC at Gatwick, where easyJet had built two new hangers and insisted emergency lighting was to be integrated into the main fittings.

These fittings would sit at the apex of the roof, some 16m above the ground, so reliability of the products was essential.

A high lux level of 500 was required at floor level, so NVC proposed the Oregon LED 36,000 lumen fitting, of which 100 were installed with a substantial number of M3 variants.
