-- Owen's & Brigham, founded in 1888, is one of North America's leading producers and distributors of healthcare logistics and medical supplies and is all about pioneering the way for their industry. They provide global manufacturers of healthcare products and devices with innovative solutions that make the supply chain more efficient and effective. They also serve a wide range of healthcare providers, ranging from large acute care facilities and teaching hospitals to community-based organizations. Owens & Brigham collaborates with their customers to achieve improved efficiency and cost savings. Earlier this year, Owens & Brigham was determined to keep with the company's core values of efficiency, cost-reduction, and community service and began looking into replacing their multi-location manufacturing warehouse high bay lighting. However, with the growing interest in LED Lighting comes a flood of new products on the market making it increasingly difficult for businesses and organizations to select the right lighting for their specific needs. Because of this, Owens & Brigham turned to the LED energy experts at Luna Energy Partners to help guide them through the entire retrofit process.
Luna Energy Partners retrofitted 6 of Owens & Brigham's nationwide manufacturing warehouses ranging from 132,000 to 450,000 square feet with new technology LED high bay fixtures. These fixtures featured cutting-edge technology, including advanced infrared occupancy sensor capabilities able to read motion from over 60 feet at 360°. By replacing metal halide (MH) and dated high bay fixtures with high efficiency LED high bay lights, Owens & Brigham have saved an average of over 71% on their energy expenses while increasing light output by over 88% to help increase employee working conditions. The company reduced its electricity bills for these locations by an incredible $197,000 in just a few months and is expected to produce over $6.4 million in lifetime energy savings.

About Owens & Brigham
In 1888, the two founders of Owens & Brigham had a common vision for serving their customers and providing healthcare products to the residents of a growing city. John O. Owens and Michael G. Brigham formed Owens & Brigham at a time when the healthcare industry, as we know it today, was in its infancy. As the times have changed, so has the company, by keeping up with the most innovative and eco-friendly technology. By investing and participating in the global community they serve, they are connected by purpose to their customers, the customer's patients, and their neighborhoods. In fact, their employees participate enthusiastically as active members of the larger, global communities by raising funds, donating time, and supporting a variety of community service organizations.
