05 May CP ELECTRONICS: Reducing energy not quality
CP Electronics: a world leader in helping organisations achieve their energy consumption objectives.
Founded over 40 years ago with a vision to design and make reliable energy saving controls, CP Electronics has gone from strength to strength. Starting out with a small warehouse in Wembley, the company had a fairly hidden profile, producing electronic products for other companies. Now, they have a team of over 250 people and have the expertise and energy to produce their own products.
CP Electronics are now leaders in energy saving controls for commercial, public sector and domestic environments.
Forty years later they have developed an exceptional reputation for reliability in a specialised field, working with companies to reduce their operating costs and carbon footprint through cost effective lighting, heating and ventilation control systems.
Of course their products bring with them an unrivalled commitment to quality and innovation with a dedicated team who are constantly refining and innovating products.
For them product development holds a key importance to their success, often first in the market of energy control. This is measured by their patent registry; on average holding over 50 patents. Over their years in the industry they have adapted to suit neglected parts of the market.
All of their products are 100% designed in the UK as well largely being made in their UK warehouses. Priding themselves on their quality, all products come with a five year warranty to reassure customers they are getting quality products.
Over the years they have been a part of several projects such as Unity Hall in Wakefield. The building held great social, cultural and political life since the 1900s and CP Electronics worked on the community project to reduce energy costs. They installed CP Electronics presence/absence detectors. It used three of their lighting control products that allows users to customise settings and can be programmed to respond to levels of ambient life. This reduces energy wastage from lighting and other applications which are powered up but unused.
Some of the world’s biggest companies have put trust in their lighting from Rolex to VW, they have the flexibility to provide products for a wide variety of projects.
In 2016 they became part of the Energy Controls business unit of Legrand UK and Ireland. Legrand is the global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures. They have facilities in almost 90 countries and sell products in nearly 180 countries around the world. Being part of the Legrand unit brings great advantages for CP Electronics, allowing them to access their huge international network and resources.
Their drive for innovation, cutting edge technology and ongoing expertise in the energy controls sector made them a perfect fit for Legrand as well as a feature in our Lighting Solutions series.
