Accurate Metal Finishing – MA

A Smart Investment

Big Shine Energy - Accurate Metal Finishing As their company name shows, accuracy is key in the production quality at Accurate Metal Finishing. For over 50 years, the company has been perfecting its craft. Today, they offer custom solutions to even the most challenging product goals. They provide the highest quality and most advanced electropolishing, passivating, anodizing, hardcoating, and chromating services for machine metal parts. Now that takes accuracy.

Randy Croce, Accurate Metal Finishing’s new owner and his CEO Tracey Christello were interested in making improvements to the facility. Making the right investment was critical. Lighting plays a key role in many aspects of a workplace. It can affect the health, mood and safety of its workers- it can also affect the budget. Making the switch to LED is a smart investment for any decision maker who is looking to improve their facility’s overall productivity.

Inside Accurate Metal Finishing’s 12,000 sq ft building were 400 watt metal halide fixtures. The buzzing sound of ballasts was constant and the light output was poor. After learning about Big Shine Energy’s lighting projects at Wrobel Engineering and Weiss Sheet Inc., Mr. Croce and Mr. Christello knew where to begin making those important investments on improvement.

The Right Tools for the Job

Our Big Shine Energy Consultant proposed changing the 400w metal halide fixtures to 100w LED high bays. In Massachusetts, National Grid offers a generous rebate incentive for companies and institutions that use DLC Premium certified fixtures in their lighting conversion projects. Our Big Shine LED Hubble Flood Light became the perfect candidate for brightness, savings and aesthetics. Now, the facility is saving 51,839 kWh per year, which will lead to even more expansive savings for the company overall. Through National Grid’s incentive program, Accurate Metal Finishing received $13,075 to help fund the lighting project.
