Innovations for saving energy
Energy efficiency is a key issue of our day and age when it comes to conserving resources and climate protection. About 19% of the energy used world-wide goes on lighting. This equates to an annual demand of about 2,650 terrawatt-hours. Here, the intelligent use of lighting can make a huge contribution to saving energy.
Sensor technology from STEINEL makes intelligent lighting possible - for the good of the environment, but also for added convenience, safety and security every day. It is only switched ON automatically when it's actually needed, and automatically OFF again when it's no longer required. This not only saves energy but also reduces CO2 emissions and cuts costs. Combining innovative LED technology with sensor technology can even make an energy saving of up to 90%.
Sensor-switched lights, motion detectors and presence detectors from STEINEL demonstrate just how intelligently energy can be used. High-tech, ground-breaking products from STEINEL go hand in hand with energy efficiency – whether at home or in business.
Production at the company's own factories
The entire STEINEL Group is run and managed from Herzebrock-Clarholz. But STEINEL manufactures its own products as well. To ensure perfect quality, products are only manufactured at the company's own factories in Leipzig, in Switzerland, in Romania and in Moldova - in facilities covering a total area of over 40,000 square metres.
Besides operating a comprehensive quality management system, STEINEL attaches tremendous importance to monitoring every aspect of the production process. This is the only way of making innovative and high-quality products. The share of manufacturing that takes place in-house - vertical integration - is exceptionally high. Here are just a few examples: STEINEL's Leipzig works moulds every plastic component and even compounds the plastic material itself. The Leipzig factory also has its own toolmaking department. The Swiss operation in Einsiedeln is home to STEINEL's centre of excellence for complex electronics. State-of-the-art facilities automatically fit components to the printed circuit boards at a rate of up to a thousand a minute – a production service that's provided for the whole STEINEL Group. In turn, the plants in Romania and Moldova carry out all of the other steps in manufacturing right up to the finished, packed product. Quality from STEINEL – made in Europe.
