Streamlining processes to support cutting edge technology


The Challenge

Bee Lighting Ltd is a lighting technology company who work responsively with some of the world’s best vehicle manufacturers. The company had ambitions to advance from providing design and development services to also establishing a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.

The Solution

Fluere were appointed to manage key aspects of setting up the new facility. Alongside project management, Fluere analysed demand, helped prepare the site, designed the product flow and factory-wide layouts. The remit also included coordinating the equipment development, defining all logistical arrangements, and mitigating any foreseen operational risks.


The Outcome

• The entire production facility has been transformed from a cluttered shell into a logically laid out, clean-room production environment

• Factory space has been optimised, whilst providing flexibility for a varied product range

• Material handling has been efficiently designed, from raw materials to finished goods.


• To note, Bee Lighting won the national best British Small Business of the year 2016, British Chamber of Commerce award.

“Fluere were appointed to support the Bee Operations and Engineering team to build the facility and production area from the ground up.  Fluere integrated into the Bee team and quickly learnt the specific technical and quality requirements of vehicle lighting. Applying best practice manufacturing principles, Fluere enabled us to develop a World Class manufacturing facility and will continue to be part of the team to ensure we are able to produce quality products and offer flexibility in product mix and customisation.”
