On a mission to reduce the amount of energy it uses and invest further in sustainability, technical moulder BEC Group now uses LED lighting throughout its factory and has installed an electric vehicle charging point at its site.
Based on the south coast of England, in New Milton, Hampshire, BEC Group is a family-run, independent injection moulding manufacturer. Servicing a wide range of sectors, the company has expanded year on year and now offers a bespoke plastic injection design, tooling and moulding service, all under one roof. BEC Group is fiercely proud of its UK manufacturing reputation, proving its quality to clients the world over with suites of both vertical and horizontal moulding machines offering a broad range of solutions.
BEC Group has switched from legacy fluorescent lighting to energy-saving LED lights in its factory, which the company says will reduce energy usage and CO2 emissions by over 50% per year and reduce costs. The new LED lighting will last for up to 50 times longer than the previous bulbs. In addition to improving BEC’s green credentials, the new LED installation provides brighter, more consistent lighting across the factory, allowing for easier quality control checks and precision.
Electric vehicle charger
Another green addition to BEC Group’s site is an electric vehicle charging point, which can be found in the far-right-hand corner of the car park. The fully functioning charging point is available for visitors, customers, and staff free of charge. It is hoped that the charging point will encourage BEC staff to swap to hybrid or fully electric vehicles where possible and future-proof BEC as these vehicles become increasingly commonplace.
