Established in 1941, Davis Cartage Co. is a leading transportation and warehousing company providing full-service logistics solutions for its valued customers. With Multi Client Distribution Centers strategically located throughout Michigan, Davis Cartage Co. provides quick access to major population and manufacturing centers in the US & Canada.
Davis Cartage recently renewed the lease on their Mason warehouse, which was formerly a manufacturing facility. This facility-turned-warehouse still featured over 300 400-Watt and 1000-Watt metal halide lights throughout. Once Davis Cartage re-upped the lease for an additional five years, it was at that point they knew that they wanted to make some changes to that building and convert the lighting to LED.
Electro-Matic ended up converting all 300+ of their lights to 150-Watt LED fixtures with integrated motion sensors. Doing this allowed Davis Cartage to instantly save roughly 75% on their energy consumption, saving them over $4,000 each month.
“The new lights have made a dramatic difference in our efficiency. The lights are allowing us to see the correct product to grab, saving us loads of time and money as well.”
— Ken, Warehouse Supervisor
Additionally, with the help of Consumers Energy, Davis Cartage earned a rebate of over $56,000 to help offset the cost of the lights and installation. This rebate, along with their monthly savings will help Davis Cartage realize an ROI in just 9 months. This is the third warehouse that Electro-Matic has done for Davis Cartage and they are already looking at Electro-Matic to update a fourth.
