ULINE uses Cree Lighting luminaires integrated with Synapse® SimplySNAP controls to help achieve operational excellence and reliability.
ULINE, a rapidly growing shipping supply company, was looking for a lighting solution for its 800,000-square-foot warehouse facility in Lacey, Washington that would match the high quality and operational excellence engrained in the company. ULINE Director of Engineering, Mike McConnell was tasked with finding a system that would provide better light to ensure reliability and accuracy, enhance the employee experience and improve warehouse aesthetics, with excellent wireless controls capabilities that would help the facility comply with the Washington State Energy Code.
“Everything we do is based on operational excellence and reliability, so everything that we put into our buildings must speed toward our mission to get our customers their products as soon as we can,” said McConnell.
McConnell turned to long-term lighting partner Cree Lighting to meet the requirements. ULINE liked the KBL Series high-bay luminaire used in other manufacturing locations, but the team still needed to figure out the advanced controls capabilities. Cree Lighting collaborated with one of its lighting controls partners, Synapse®, to provide the wireless lighting control solution that would suit the needs of the customer.
