JACKSON, MI — Pita Pan, LLC, located in Chicago, Illinois, has established itself as a leading supplier of Pita and flat bread to restaurant chains and wholesale bakery customers throughout North America. Last year, Pit Pan began searching for options to reduce energy consumption and immediately recognized lighting efficiency as the quickest means to do so.
In the spring, the company cooperatively worked with Crescent Electric Supply, and KSA Lighting to seek out a commercial lighting solution that would meet their facility codes while improving illumination, and significantly lowering energy costs. Besides energy efficiency, Everlast was chosen for its easily accessible maintenance features.
“Crescent Electric provides solutions to our customers by understanding their business, anticipating their needs, and collaborating with them,” commented Tom Jensen, Manager of Digital Marketing at Crescent Electric Supply. “Our solutions are delivered in the form of world-class products and services combined with a thorough understanding of their application.”
Pita Pan went on to replace 279 400 watt high pressure sodium fixtures with EverLast® induction 250 watt IP65 Aluminum High Bay fixtures that produce an equivalent light output allowing them to achieve maximum savings.
“When the project was complete, the lighting fixtures performed beyond our expectations,” said James Lock, manager of Energy Business Development for Crescent Electric Supply Company. “The building had low and high areas and the EverLast fixtures distributed light evenly whether they were installed at more than 40 feet or 10 feet.”
EverLast® induction light fixtures are 50-70% more energy efficient than HIDs and last up to 100,000 hours, making them virtually maintenance free for up to 15 years. The EverLast® 250 watt IP65 High Bay fixtures provide a more natural and high color rendition light quality unlike traditional HID fixtures. EverLast® induction lighting fixtures are also available with a dimmable option, providing even more energy savings while areas are vacant.
The EverLast® High Bay fixtures are commonly used in large scale facilities and can be found installed in COBO Hall in Detroit, Michigan, the Tulsa Expo Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers in Green Bay, Wisconsin.Tagged with tED
