A Corporate Responsibility
If you have a favorite beverage or juice drink, chances are, the flavor of that drink was brought to you by Clarendon Flavors. They serve over 200 customers with flavors in brands worldwide and have designed and developed a flavor library with thousands of different varieties of flavors that are used in beverages, foods, perfumes and other applications.
Their 76,000 square foot production and warehouse facility supports their growing customer demands. A large facility like that has the potential to make a large-scale environmental impact. Ben Jones, the Director of Facility Maintenance recognized the corporate responsibility Clarendon Flavors had to reduce carbon emissions and conserve energy.
Improving the Workplace
Not only is LED lighting helpful for the environment, but it also creates a safer and more comfortable environment for workers. Lighting has an overall effect on physical and mental health. It’s important for any operation to consider the health and safety of their employees. This is exactly what Mr. Jones had in mind when considering the right lighting company for their lighting upgrade.
Previously, the Clarendon Flavors facility housed 1080w metal halide fixtures, creating dark, spotty lighting. While some areas of the floor were brightly lit, others were dark which made work difficult for lift operators. The plan for improvement was to even the lighting spread by choosing a beam angle wide enough to cover the floor plane and increase the footcandle levels to create a brighter workspace. We used our Big Shine LED TK1 high bay in 300w and 120° beam angle. The TK1 is a great solution for large warehouse and production facilities because of its precise lighting distribution.
