Brenntag Pacific

Lighting the way to a brighter bottom line

Challenge

On the wall at Brenntag Pacific, you’ll find a ticker indicating how many days they’ve gone without a safety incident. Operating heavy machinery in dim or poorly-lit work areas was an accident waiting to happen. Brenntag’s outdated lighting endangered employees and complicated even the simplest tasks – but this client’s concerns about spending upfront capital for an upgrade initially didn’t leave room for other options.

Solution

Utilizing our Cashflow Advantage Program, Brenntag was able to initiate a new lighting project immediately without breaking the bank. Not to mention, thanks to Performance+ through Energy Trust, more than 50% of the project was paid for by incentives. We took light level measurements, installed zonal lighting controls, and incorporated recommendations from OSHA to completely overhaul the facility’s lighting. The upgrade amounted to a safer work environment for their employees… and their “Days Accident-Free” ticker on the wall has never looked better.
