Why do the Country’s Top Corporations Choose Illumetek, a Division of Lightserve?
A premiere anchor store retailer outlined a portfolio wide upgrade to LED lighting that included 28 million square feet of retail space and 2.7 million square feet of logistics and distribution, to be completed in less than three years. They released a ‘request for proposal’ to their premium manufacturers of choice and asked them to package a solution that could deliver the aggressive schedule on time and on budget.
Illumetek, a Division of Lightserve was enlisted by manufacturer Osram Sylvania to outline a program using our total portfolio management system and logistical expertise. At a fixed national price, we offered complete lighting audits, rebate administration, material handling, warranty management, scheduling compliance and a guaranteed deadline.
The retailer was pleased but skeptical with the aggressive schedule and challenged Illumetek, a Division of Lightserve to deliver. We gladly accepted. 67 locations were completed in 5 months across 21 states including Alaska. Their Vice President of Facilities and Energy was thrilled to be proven wrong and Illumetek, a Division of Lightserve was given the rest of the program to complete in year two, including five distribution centers.
As a National Accounts Customer who has done many lighting projects (both self install and using a contractor), I can say with confidence: Illumetek is the best company we’ve used to assist with install & rebate work. Our install projects with Illumetek have been on schedule and at or under budget. They complete and submit rebate work with a high attention to detail. Plus, they are all just nice people! They are true stewards of the philosophy “under promise, over deliver”.
