Gatorade selected the Maneri~Agraz team of lighting professionals to provide energy efficient lighting retrofits in their five main manufacturing facilities in Florida, Indiana, California, Georgia and Texas.
Each of these facilities received comprehensive lighting retrofits of the offices, manufacturing and warehouse facilities providing improved lighting and high return on investment.
Warehouse areas were converted from HID systems to T5HO linear fluorescent systems with sensors that turn fixtures off when the space is unoccupied, providing approximately 70% energy savings.
Manufacturing areas were converted from HID to T5HO linear fluorescent vapor tight fixtures providing 50% energy savings.
Installations were completed seamlessly and without interruption to the facility processes.

I wanted to take a moment and thank you and your company for the quick and efficient manner in which you installed the Gatorade lighting projects. We challenged your new firm with this large project that was scattered over five states from Florida to California. Each of the five facilities, Mountaintop, Dallas, Indianapolis, Oakland, and Kissimmee were installed with a high level of quality and very little if any disruption to our processes. Your willingness to work off shifts and weekends made all the difference in the world. Your crews were courteous and respectful to all of our facility managers and they worked well with our team in coordinating access into each production area.
Your timely installations allowed PepsiCo to realize the significant energy savings they produced earlier than we had anticipated. Congratulations on a job well done!
