Lighting ‘no longer viable’ as Eaton closes Doncaster plant O ne of the UK’s biggest lighting factories will switch off for good due to pressure on commercial lighting sector margins. Eaton is quitting the mains lighting market in Europe, the Middle East and Africa and closing down the 50,000 sq m former Cooper Lighting and Safety plant in Doncaster, which it took over in 2012. Luminaires for commercial, retail, education and industrial applications are designed and manufactured at the site,

which employs 390 people. Some 300 jobs are set to go, with the remaining 90 transferring to the emergency lighting operation that will continue on a separate location. In a statement, the US company, whose global headquarters are in Ireland, said this proposal was the best way forward given that, “mains lighting product lines are no longer commercially viable.” T: +353 (0)1 6372900
