Lucy Zodion celebrates 60th anniversary and opening of enhanced site with commemorative video


SOWERBY BRIDGE, UK: Lucy Zodion Ltd recently celebrated its new site extension and 60th anniversary with an open day. Today, the street lighting control manufacturer launches a commemorative video, captured on the day, to showcase the transformed site and its journey of success over the past sixty years.  

The video, featuring the new and improved site, celebrates six decades of innovation and manufacturing.  It not only showcases the extra warehouse and workshop space gained from the build, but also reveals Lucy Zodion’s proud workforce in action; demonstrating what it means to be a manufacturer and employer in 2017. 

Lucy Zodion introduced its first ever photocell 50 years ago and continues to develop industry leading designs that are used both in the UK and internationally. Growing with industry demands, Lucy Zodion’s product portfolio now spans wider than photocells; encompassing fused products, enclosures and Central Management Systems for remote streetlight management and control. The video maps this journey.

“I’m proud to be part of Lucy Zodion. I’m part of a great team and in the 50 years we’ve been making photocells, we haven’t stopped innovating -this is evident in our requirement for more space. Says John Fox, Lucy Zodion MD: “We aim to consistently progress and the opening marks another chapter in our development; I am thoroughly excited by recent product introductions and our development pipeline over the next few years gives me great confidence in our future.”

John features on the video, along with the Mayor of Calderdale and other important stakeholders, all of whom comment on Lucy Zodion and how its new site will positively impact business relationships and the local economy.

The extension is a welcome addition to the business, which is expanding in its own right thanks to a new focus on the development of technologies fit for growing sectors, smart cities and international markets. This, along with an increasing requirement for pioneering photocell products and smart lighting technologies, means that extra space will facilitate a wider product range in a more efficient working environment.

Taking almost a year to complete, coinciding with the company’s 60th anniversary, the build means Lucy Zodion will benefit from almost 100% more space. Overall, the build has used over 25 tonnes of structural steel, 300m2 of concrete blocks and 7,700 man hours in total.

The revitalised site signifies the beginning of an exciting era for Lucy Zodion; taking smarter lighting technology to future cities and providing further opportunities for the company and its staff to flourish.
