Pro-Light – Lighting-up Irish business

Pro-Light – Lighting-up Irish business


Pro-Light, the leading Irish company who specialise in retail and hospitality lighting were delighted to be nominated by Applegreen to work alongside their team in the leading independent forecourt retailer`s extensive expansion.

To enable Applegreen to realize their unique offering, they engaged Pro-light to design, supply and project manage a complete lighting solution for their forecourt, retail & food areas.

The brief was to create a ‘Destination Shopping’ experience for customers and a relaxing environment for drivers to combat fatigue and refresh while also reinforcing the Applegreen brand. All Applegreen outlets have been strategically planned and designed in a manner conducive to customer behaviour, with the customer experience starting the moment the customer enters the forecourt.

Pro-Light design team worked closely with the Applegreen planners, designers and architects to help create a flawless first impression on arriving motorists. It’s a proven fact that attention-grabbing lighting can entice more drivers to take a break and purchase refreshments.  The external illumination of the forecourt building was also to make customers feel welcome as they approach. Additionally, to enhance safety and customer security in parking and pump areas Applegreen use the very latest LED lighting to maximize visibility.

When lighting up the customer areas of a service station first impressions always count. The café, restaurants and food halls are key areas and a major focal point for Applegreen. From ambient lighting in the outdoor Oasis garden seating area, warm designer lighting in the dining area to specialized mirror lighting in the wash rooms, Pro-light listened to Applegreen on every detail to make sure they got it right.

With many different food offerings from leading brands, coupled with seating areas & convenience retail areas Pro-Light know the importance of creating lighting ‘zones’ within the store so customers can both enjoy their surroundings and find places easily in-store.

Importantly for Applegreen, Pro-Light was able to fulfil all of the required green standards criteria without sacrificing lighting quality or design on the project.
