Yesterday, 19th September 2017, Lucy Zodion officially launched its new and improved site in an open day that welcomed members of the local community, including the Mayor and Mayoress of Calderdale, as well as the local Labour MP Holly Lynch and Ryburn Valley High School Choir.

The Open Day began with three presentations. The first was by John Fox, MD of Lucy Zodion, the second was given by the Mayor of Calderdale and the third by Richard Dick, Chairman of Lucy Group. All of which celebrated Lucy Zodion and its dedication to growth and progression throughout the past six decades, with optimism for future developments.

To give guests a feel of Lucy Zodion’s culture and the projects taking place throughout the company, an informative tour was given around the factory and warehouse. Showcasing the new extension in all its glory, attendees got a glimpse of the improvements it has made, not only in terms of production but warehouse and office space. With more capacity to develop pioneering street lighting solutions, Lucy Zodion's staff now has more room to produce and store a growing product range.

From lighting controls to the automation systems that are soon to enhance Lucy Zodion's production efficiencies, guests in the tour were given the opportunity to get a better grasp of the products that are designed and developed in-house each and every day. This was also a great way for Lucy Zodion's staff to reveal their passion and pride for the company, by demonstrating their deep product knowledge.

With a rich history, the Lucy Zodion Open Day revealed how far the company has come since first launching in 1957. Moving from laundry control products to innovative street lighting controls, with the introduction of the first Zodion photocell some 50 years ago, the Open Day helped exhibit how experience and expertise have helped the company develop products that suit an evolving market.

For entertainment, Lucy Zodion enlisted the musical talents of Ryburn Valley High School Choir, Lucy Zodion’s local high school. With a 15 minute set of modern classics, the tuneful students provided the perfect backing track to a successful site launch and 60th Anniversary Celebration.

The build, which took almost a year to complete, has given Lucy Zodion the capacity to bring the manufacture of its entire product range in-house; moving its Pre-wired pillar operations from Milton Keynes to the Sowerby Bridge site this August. This gives the company better control over its complete product range, with the aim to enhance supply requirements.

Lucy Zodion’s larger site plays a key role in its future; with a detailed plan to expand the company and its product range throughout the UK and internationally. More space will facilitate improved manufacturing efficiencies and enhanced product development, while housing a growing workforce to support this progression.
