Quicklight the obvious choice for Wickes

Wickes have been voted by customers as 'Britain's favourite DIY store'. It currently has around 200 branches nationwide, of between 20,000 and 30,000 sq ft. Each store is well laid out and easy to shop in, however to keep them looking bright and attractive to customers the store lighting needs to be maintained at optimum levels, which is always a challenge. Wickes always look for ways to improve the environment and insist that all suppliers meet their high standards of environmental awareness and quality.

Quicklight handle our lighting maintenance. They visit our stores every eight weeks to check the lighting for us. They don't bother me unless there is something which needs my urgent attention. Each of our store managers has a branch limit which can only be exceeded with authorisation. This enables us to keep control of our lighting maintenance budget throughout the year. The big benefit to me is peace of mind, knowing that Quicklight will just get on with the job.
