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.

A little different from our typical LED lighting projects, Dollar Tree and Starbucks were new construction exterior lighting projects. The owner and the landlord of Dollar Tree and Starbucks who was building these new buildings wanted to take the lighting package and minimize it to save money and then put the budget funding towards other needs for the construction.

The Lakes Mall is a 600,000 sq. ft regional shopping mall located in Muskegon County. The mall sits on a 101-acre property line and has over 40 stores and 4 anchor stores located on its premises.
General Manager, Jonathan Pittman, pays the initial energy cost for common areas and the inline spaces in the parking lot. The energy challenge at this property, however, was that the landlord did not have separately metered spaces. Although the retailer reimburses landlords for their space energy consumption the common area had high wattage lighting throughout the mall which created an expensive lighting system.
The common area of the mall had CFL and Metal Halide lights ranging in wattage consumption from 15 - 1,000-watt bulbs.
The objective was to find a way to lower energy costs for the landlord by reducing the wattage of each fixture in the common areas of the mall starting with the parking Lot Lights.
EM resolved a problem by diagnosing the mall's common area energy usage. They created a plan of action and implemented a project to remove high-wattage CFL and Metal Halide lights and replace them with lower-wattage LED light bulbs and fixtures.
The mall has benefited from this lighting project because the energy usage is lower causing an energy cost savings for the land lord. The mall's lighting is also brighter and gives it a cleaner and crisp look that customers and retailers can enjoy.
"The lights brought life back into the mall. Foot traffic has increased in the mall since the lights have been installed. “ Jonathan Pittman, Lakes Mall General Manager
