Faith Technologies Project Spotlight: Bergstrom Automotive

Thanks to a long-lasting relationship the companies have enjoyed for 35 years, Bergstrom Corporation selected Faith Technologies as their electrical partner of choice when they were looking to upgrade the exterior lighting at their 32 sites across the Fox Valley, Green Bay and Madison, Wisconsin.

Faith Technologies, in partnership with Walsh Long and LSI Automotive, worked to program and install 840 light poles and more than 1,800 LED fixtures. The new lighting system was designed with state-of-the-art controls; each light can be regulated individually via a web app. With the use of motion sensors, each pole can also be dimmed during late-night hours and brighten to 100 percent when there is traffic after hours. With Faith’s design and implementation of this project, Bergstrom was able to improve their energy efficiency and save $550,000 annually.

Faith utilized its Excellerate manufacturing services for 44 percent of off-site labor. The use of these services provided efficiencies in the project schedule, along with a lower impact on the customer. The light poles were assembled in a controlled, off-site prefabrication environment, which allowed Faith to minimize logistical disruptions on the sites.

Faith was proud to be a partner in this successful, high-visibility project. Congratulations to all the team members involved!
