Sept. 24, 2012 - PRLog -- PET Processors, L.L.C. is a privately owned company with processing plants in Painesville, Ohio as well as Scotland.  Located in the heart of the polymer belt, they offer a full range of thermoplastic polymer services, specializing in custom compounding (twin screw technology) and solid state polymerization. They maintain and operate a vast array of processing, handling, test and compounding equipment, including the largest collection of solid stating polymerization vessels (rotary vacuum dryers) in the world.

PET Processors contacted ROI Energy last spring, in an effort to improve the company’s lighting.  Bob Taussig, president of ROI Energy suggested they convert their antiquated T-12 fluorescent and metal halide high bay lighting to energy efficient T5 high bay fixtures. “The difference is overwhelming.  Dramatically more light using less energy, all while realizing rebates from First Energy and garnering a significant tax benefit.  This was truly a home run for PET Processors.  They even captured additional energy savings in portions of their facility by utilizing occupancy sensors to turn fixtures off when no one was present.” explained Taussig.

“We couldn’t be happier with our new lighting: comments Randy Diefenthal, owner of PET Processors. Our entire plant is extremely well illuminated, morale is up and I’m confident our employees are more productive.  Our new lighting not only helps meet our continuous improvement objectives, it’s helping to contribute to our sustainability initiative. There’s no doubt we have a safer, more efficient work environment.”

Blaise Codispoti, president claims: “PET Processors is committed to meeting and exceeding our customer’s expectations. Our new lighting is a dramatic improvement, providing significantly improved task lighting promoting a safer and more productive environment for all employees.  The new lighting operates at the 5000 Kelvin color temperature spectrum, providing a comfortable, bright and glare-free environment. The improved illumination enhances both the visual appeal of our facility while providing increased flexibility for space utilization.”

PET Processors investment promises to pay dividends for years to come as electric rates continue to increase over time, they are positioned to get the most bang for their buck.  This lighting upgrade is truly a “night and day” difference. The entire project was accomplished with no loss in productivity over a period of several months.
