Fabiano Brothers Installs 250 LED High Bay Lights to Improve Facility

Posted by Electro-Matic on Oct 24, 2022 4:10:00 PM
Fabiano Brothers of Bay City, MI is a premier beverage distributor providing licensed accounts beverages throughout Michigan as well as central Wisconsin. This 100,000 square foot is located in Bay City, Michigan that includes beer storage space, receiving area, larger recycling center, and offices. Fabiano Brothers wanted to implement an efficient light source throughout their whole facility to increase security, reduce operating cost, and improve working conditions. Electro-Matic Visual was up for the task.

Electro-Matic Visual supplied the 250 indoor LED high bay lighting throughout the Fabiano Brothers facility. The high quality LED lighting fixtures and bulbs ensure for a long life period of over 100,000 hours to reduce maintenance costs, increase safety and increase energy savings.

“The LED lighting is certainly an improvement in the quality of light. We were able to realize $34,000 in savings on our overall electric bill for the less than full year that we had the LED lights and this takes into account any rate increase from the utility supplier.” – Jerry Witte, CFO, Fabiano Brothers

Not only does Fabiano Brothers see energy savings and maintenance savings, the LED lighting provides a much more safe working environment for the workers and much more appealing. “My warehouse employees really like the LED style of lighting not only because it is clean and bright but because the light is where it needs to be… on their work.” – Jerry Witte, CFO, Fabiano Brothers

The partnership with Fabiano Brothers and Electro-Matic Visual made this outstanding high bay LED lighting upgrade happen. This impressive facility is now able to function at a higher efficiency while improving the productivity of their workers and making the environment they work in more safe.

LED Wall Packs Increase Visibility and Security While Reducing Energy Consumption at Fabiano Brothers

Posted by Electro-Matic on Oct 24, 2022 4:08:00 PM
Fabiano Brothers is constantly moving beverages in and out of their facility. Proper lighting not only on the inside was needed, but the importance of having their loading docks equipped with quality LED lighting wall packs was necessary to have their hundreds of trucks load and unload safely throughout each day.
Backing in a 18-wheeler to a tight area with precision can be daunting for semi-truck drivers. Doing it with poor lighting turns that task into a nightmare. Understanding of their semi-truck drives challenges, Fabiano Brothers decided that implementing LED wall packs to help guide the drivers into the loading docks. The optic throw that the LEDs use pitches the light forward off the wall and on to the desired area to help make the path to the loading dock visible for the drivers.
Wall packs were not just used for the loading dock, they also fit the needs for other applications around the high bay doors that the semi-trucks would enter and exit for picking up shipments. The wall packs acts as a guide light for the drivers, giving them visibility when entering or existing the doors.
After business hours, wall packs are and good lighting in general, are necessary for providing good security. Security cameras that are placed outside of the building would be irrelevant without good lighting. By strategically pitching the light, the wall packs create enough light for security cameras to record at high qualities.
