Case Study
Lighting Retrofit


The maintenance managers at Holt Caterpillar were spending too much time changing light bulbs, and over time they came to realize that what they really needed was a lighting professional. When it came to creating an efficient and effective lighting retrofit project, Holt Caterpillar needed a partner that could offer the right lighting solution without unnecessary cost and complications. FSG and GE worked together to audit the facility and specify the products.

FSG believes it should never be difficult to get the right lighting, so we worked with Holt Caterpillar to create a process for getting exactly what it was they were looking for when it came to their facility.


Every project begins with design, and in Holt's particular case we needed to understand what it was they were looking for and what it was we could offer to help them achieve that. They wanted to reduce energy and improve longevity. Using LED technology, we were able to reduce the number of fixtures from 583 to 494 while still significantly improving their lighting levels.

Once we designed the solution, it was time to get to work. With Holt Caterpillar, there were a number of challenges. This was a live shop and it needed to stay running, so we really had to think through how to get this job done without affecting the business. During the execution of this project, we actually found one area that wasn't meeting the design spec. We were able to correct the problem in real time, keeping the project moving while avoiding additional costs associated with coming back later to fix the issue.

The final step for Holt Caterpillar involved maintenance because at FSG we understand that ongoing maintenance is critical to overall long-term success. Throughout the warranty period, FSG remained engaged and available to meet all of Holt Caterpillar's lighting maintenance needs.


For industrial customers who understand the importance of uninterrupted operations, FSG takes pride in finding ways to deliver facility solutions without negatively impacting the normal workflow at the facility. With Holt Caterpillar, we once again delivered long-term value for our customer, who was thrilled with the results of its LED lighting upgrade.
