A Bright Future For DAWSON-WAM
At our Head Office we have replaced all of our halogen lighting with a LED based system. The new LED lighting system uses a third of the energy, lasts longer and provides a more natural light than the original halogen system. The company intends to convert all of our offices to the same specification by the end of 2017. The replaced halogen bulbs are being sent away for recycling by a specialist.
