LED Lighting May Lead to Fewer Work Stoppages

Most conversations about distributor efficiency center around process - the logistics, staging, workflow and equipment that carry the heavy load to get the job done. Most facility managers don't think of lighting as playing much of a role in overall efficiency. For those whose facilities are full of antiquated HID fixtures, lighting is probably considered more of a nuisance and costly maintenance expense.

Of course, those who have already upgraded to modern, high-efficiency LED lighting systems know that the right lighting can make a huge impact on overall operational efficiency. LEDs are not only more energy efficient, but they’re also virtually maintenance free, which means no more continuous bulb changes that consume crew time, and maybe even require a halt in operations to access hard-to-reach fixtures, not to mention the cost of replacement parts. All of this translates into significant bottom-line savings, which many distributors around the world have already discovered, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars, some in the first year alone.

But, unlike conventional lighting that has very little, if any, room for innovation, LEDs aren’t nearly done yet.
