“Cree’s superior technology, fixture quality and the dramatic decrease in utility costs we’re already experiencing are making this a very smart decision,” said Eric Zoph, Thorntons’ vice president of construction and environmental concerns. “One of the biggest problems faced by owners is how to maintain light levels and make the facility feel inviting without wasting a lot of energy. These LED luminaires solve that problem.”
The long life and reliability of LED light sources diminish maintenance costs and help increase profits through reduced labor and relamping expenses.
“We’re very pleased to partner with Thorntons,” said Scott Manning, Cree sales manager. “This is a forward-thinking company that recognizes the advantages of LEDs.”
