Fabiano Brothers Installs 250 LED High Bay Lights to Improve Facility
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, but the LED lighting also provides a much more safe working environment for the workers and is 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 to 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 safer.
