Expert in the design and manufacture of street lighting products and controls exhibits at 2017 HEA event to showcase a number of new products and developments

SOWERBY BRIDGE, UK: Lucy Zodion Ltd, innovator of smart street lighting products for over 50 years and industry leader in the design and development of power distribution systems, will attend and exhibit at the Highway Electrical Association’s upcoming Annual Conference, Exhibition and Awards.  The event takes place on Thursday 2nd November 2017 at the Celtic Manor & Resort Hotel in Newport, Wales.

The manufacturer will exhibit its range of solutions for highways that aid power distribution and street lighting control, from the ground-up. Additionally its innovative new miniature photocell, the PrecizionHALO, has been submitted for consideration in the HEA Awards, in the category of Product of the Year 2017.

Lucy Zodion has worked with a number of collaborative partners to develop the PrecizionHALO; the first photocell available in the market to work with the SR Driver and Zhaga (Book 18) specified base connectors. The PrecizionHALO enables smart communication and sensing in a robust and compact design, making it the ideal solution for modern LED street lighting luminaires.

John Fox, LucyZodion MD, looks forward to the event: “Lucy Zodion’s involvement at the HEA Conference is an important consideration on our event schedule. We are always interested to learn and share the developments in the highways electrical sector and the event is a great platform to do so. This year, the event follows a successful 12 months for Lucy Zodion – we hope this continues at the awards where we have submitted an entry for Product of the Year.”   

Lucy Zodion will also be joined by supporting technology specialist GridKey, of sister company Lucy Electric. This will help visitors better understand how valuable insight can be gained from the control and monitoring of electrical power.


GridKey’s offering links the capabilities of the two Lucy companies to give highways agencies a more cost effective approach to maintenance. Transferring technology originally produced within the smart meter realm into adjacent sectors, such as highways, GridKey provides innovative remote monitoring systems that offer a real time energy management solution. Lucy Zodion’s Pre-wired pillar solutions can be used alongside such technologies, encasing enabling hardware for continuous remote energy monitoring.

As a HEMSA member, Lucy Zodion is a regular attendee and exhibitor at the annual event. The Award ceremony helps identify the achievements of HEA and HEMSA members over the past 12 months. Last year Lucy Zodion was awarded with the accolade of Manufacturer of the Year 2016; a great way to celebrate (what was) the company’s 50th year in the manufacture of photocells.

Further information: Lucy Zodion Ltd is a company within the Lucy Group Ltd. Other companies in the group include Lucy Electric, Lucy Castings and Lucy Real Estate. 

Lucy Zodion recently celebrated its 60th anniversary, which has given the company an opportunity to reflect on how the business has progressed. From humble beginnings, the manufacturer has grown into an international company. Still specialising in the design and development of photocells, Lucy Zodion now has additional products in its range that help to optimise lamppost infrastructure, from the ground-up

The new site extension highlights Lucy Zodion’s progression even further. It has given the street lighting control specialist almost double the footprint, which has not only made space for more offices and warehouse facilities, but it means the company’s entire product mix is now controlled centrally at the Sowerby Bridge site. Before the build Lucy Zodion’s Pre-Wired Pillar operations were carried out in Milton Keynes; in August 2017 they moved to Sowerby Bridge to improve efficiencies throughout the supply chain.
