Company installs Revolution Lighting Technologies’ industry-leading LED solutions to reduce energy costs and deliver superior light output through 18 locations; Revolution Lighting has now completed LED retrofits of 60 GMS locations nationwide since 2012
Stamford, CT, October 3, 2017 – Revolution Lighting Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: RVLT) (“Revolution Lighting”), a global provider of advanced LED lighting solutions, today announced the completion of a multi-facility LED retrofit for Gypsum Management & Supply, Inc. (GMS). The “turnkey” retrofit of 18 GMS locations, including warehouse and office space, is expected to double the lighting levels throughout the structures while reducing annual lighting energy use by more than 60%. Revolution Lighting has now retrofitted 60 GMS locations nationwide since 2012.
Revolution Lighting’s “turnkey” services, led by its operating division Tri-State LED, concluded that the Company’s industry-leading LED solutions, including its Eco High Bays and Eco Thin Panels, would improve lighting efficiency while increasing light output for enhanced safety. After the initial stages of development, Tri-State LED, along with installation partner Amortized Energy, worked closely with GMS to complete the lighting retrofit on time and within budget, managing all phases of the project including scope and budget development, final material selection, and project management.
“We could not be happier with the work done by Revolution Lighting and Tri-State LED, as we continue our company-wide efforts to become more energy efficient and we are really pleased with those savings,” said Alan Adams, Senior Vice President, GMS. “Tri-State LED led us throughout the product selection and installation process, making sure we would receive maximum energy savings at minimal cost, and completed the installation without disruption of our day-to-day operations.”
“We are excited to continue work with GMS as their trusted partner for LED solutions, having now retrofitted 60 facilities over the past five years with our industry-leading technologies,” said Robert V. LaPenta, CEO and Chairman, Revolution Lighting. “The continued selection of Revolution Lighting and Tri-State LED by GMS speaks volumes about our company’s dedication to delivering quality service during every stage of a project. We remain committed to providing superior service and LED technologies that deliver on energy efficiency goals, and look forward to continuing our efforts with GMS across the rest of their facility locations nationwide.”
LED lighting consists of only 8% of all installed lighting with the U.S. industrial and manufacturing sector. However as LED solutions continue to revolutionize the lighting market, offering superior efficiency, light output, longevity, color quality and versatility compared to conventional lighting (metal halide, florescent, incandescent and halogen), its market share is expected to experience significant growth, expanding to 65% by 2025. These factors, combined with increasing cost competitiveness, represent significant market opportunities for Tri State LED and Revolution Lighting.
“We are excited to continue work with GMS as their trusted partner for LED solutions, having now retrofitted 60 facilities over the past five years with our industry-leading technologies. The continued selection of Revolution Lighting and Tri-State LED by GMS speaks volumes about our company’s dedication to delivering quality service during every stage of a project. We remain committed to providing superior service and LED technologies that deliver on energy efficiency goals, and look forward to continuing our efforts with GMS across the rest of their facility locations nationwide.”
