2 May Out with the old and in with the new Nadir! May 2, 2015By SuperUser Account Nadir Electric News Action Lighting, Nadir Electric, Welcome 0 You may have heard that in 2014 we joined forces with the Action Lighting group of companies, giving us better access to the best lighting products and support. We also changed our name from Nadir Fluorescent Ltd. to Nadir Electric Ltd. This change reflects what we have been doing all along: serving Canada’s energy-saving lighting needs from audits and retrofits to ongoing maintenance in all lighting technologies. Along with our new name and new extended family, we are excited to share our bright new logo and website. However, despite all these changes, our mission hasn’t changed, and after browsing our site you’ll see that energy-efficiency and safe working practices are still our top priorities. Our Services page will give you a very good idea of how much we can do to manage your lighting projects. We have big plans for our new website, and, as with any good site, we hope ours will never really be finished. Keep an eye on this Nadir News section for lighting industry information, original articles and tips for improving efficiency and safety in your facilities. If you’re not familiar with our new partner, Action Lighting Ltd., we invite you to check out their website at www.actionlighting.ca to see how, together, we can help with all of your lighting needs. Related Posts There's profit in your socket [Reprinted with permission from ActionLighting.ca] Every industry has to deal with price erosion, increased costs, or both, at one time or another. If you can’t find a way to sell your product or service for more than it costs you to provide it, your business will likely fail. Smart companies in this situation cut waste and come out leaner and stronger because of it. Unfortunately, many companies struggle to find enough places to cut without going through the painful (and damaging) process of reducing product quality or letting go of essential staff. Despite clasping hands and gazing to the sky for guidance, one place business leaders often fail to look is right there in the ceiling. On average, lighting accounts for nearly 40 percent of a Canadian business’s electricity use. (Source: SaskPower). Taking a chunk out of fixed costs is challenging, but energy savings on lighting are there to be had and most provincial utilities have programs that can make the initial investment extremely low, even free. No-brainer ROI and payback As equipment upgrades go, investing in a lighting retrofit to switch to LED or another suitable technology, such as high efficiency fluorescents, is about as painless as it gets. It's also a win-win when you can save money while offering a better product or service. Improved lighting can lead to increased productivity in offices, warehouses and industrial applications. It also improves the appearance of products and the rooms they are in; a critical element for the survival of retail and hospitality businesses. Thankfully, advanced lighting options also come with lower energy bills. The new lighting options positively affect product and service quality, while also shaving dollars off expenses. If those reasons aren’t enough to make you pick up the phone and make the switch, payback times are also getting shorter and, thanks to government incentives, some are achieved in under a year. More profit on every sale Decreasing fixed costs for businesses means more profit on every sale. Energy efficient lighting is a great way to lower costs. And it can be done most effectively with a knowledgeable lighting distributor who has access to the broadest range of lighting products and dedicated people who will ensure your needs are met.
