Conveyor Handling Company Assists Berry Plastics to 'Go Green'

Elkridge, MD – Conveyor Handling Company, in coordination with the U.S. based industrial LED Company, EcoZohm, assists Berry Plastics with their efforts to 'go green,' converting all facilities to LED lighting.

In 2013, the plant in Monroe Township, NJ had been searching for cutting edge green technologies that would help them permanently reduce their energy usage, as well as meet their "Green Sustainability" objectives.  According to Mike Fader, Plant Manager of Berry Plastics, the facility ran 24/7 requiring proper lighting to plant operations, quality control and safety.

Conveyor Handling Company completed Berry Plastics' plant-wide lighting upgrade, replacing nearly all of the interior lights in the building. This included lights in their production area, high-bay warehouse, maintenance shop, cafeteria, labs, restrooms and offices. Maintenance manager John McConnell said, "Since the EcoZohm LED upgrade, we have received so many comments from clients about how great the lighting looks. It is really impressive. The LED lighting is so much cleaner looking than the T8 fluorescent fixtures were."

Electrical usage for lighting was dramatically reduced, light levels were increased and maintenance should be virtually zero for the next 100,000 hours (11.4 years at 24/7). With no lamps or ballasts to change, LED lighting, proves to be the most green-sustainable lighting solution on the market.
