Buffaload light up with Trime

Buffaload Logistics, the Cambridgeshire based independent high-volume temperature controlled operator, has invested in several of our lighting towers

The Buffaload Ellington site is deep in the Cambridgeshire countryside, with no street lights and next to the busy A14 trunk road. The company operates twenty-four hours, seven days a week, so their personnel are often leaving and arriving in darkness, particularly in the winter months. They identified a vital need for additional lighting in the car park to keep their staff safe.

Buffaload carried out an extensive internet search to seek out the best lighting sets that would suit their requirements. Their investigations led them to us and our X-MAST and X-CHAIN lighting towers.

The X-MAST delivers 5000sq. metre of lighting via four 320 watt LED lamps connected to a nine-metre X-MAST Lighting Towermast. Power is from ordinary mains electricity, which means that the X-MAST produces zero noise and zero emissions. The X-CHAIN has similar attributes to the X-MAST, delivering over 2000sq. metres of safe, bright lighting. Additionally, up to four X-CHAIN LED sets can be connected together using the simple ‘socket-in/socket-out’ system and then attached to a single power source - either ordinary mains or a portable generator.

After carefully evaluating many different lighting systems, Buffaload eventually chose Trime for two reasons. Firstly, they are based close to the Buffaload site in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire. Buffaload have a policy to do business locally wherever they can, this helps to keep delivery miles low which acts as part of their low carbon ethos. They also like to build relationships with the local business community. Secondly, Buffaload were delighted to discover that Trime UK was also competitively priced.

Commenting on this purchase, Liam Gilbert, Buffaload General Manager said, “Trime UK provided a really good service, they couldn’t have been more helpful. The arrival of extra lights was welcomed by everyone.”

Buffaload Logistics are a fully integrated chilled transport and storage provider. They were formed in 1995 and remain a family owned and run business. They have an excess of 100 years’ experience in their sector.
