West Coast Customs Taps RVLT for Energy-Efficient LED Lighting Solutions in New Car Design Center and Showroom

Revolution Lighting Technologies, Inc. (RVLT) (“Revolution Lighting”) was recently commissioned by West Coast Customs (WCC), a market leader in custom automotive styling solutions, to upgrade the lighting system to LED lighting at its new design center and showroom located in Burbank, California.

A leader in advanced lighting solutions, RVLT outfitted the entire 60,000 square foot facility and parking lot with its energy-efficient LED flat panels, LED tubes and other LED products, reducing WCC’s energy usage by 64% and saving the company more than $26,000 annually. These improvements are equivalent to the following:
• Reducing 194,808 lb of greenhouse gases annually
• Saving 7,305 trees or planting 17 acres of trees

“Our new facility is now truly energy efficient and environmentally friendly. After in-depth review of energy efficiency options, the benefits of LED lighting were obvious and Revolution Lighting’s LED solutions were superior to all other options,” said Ryan Friedlinghaus, CEO of West Coast Customs. “In addition to using less energy and saving a ton of money, the LED upgrade has provided exceptional lighting conditions that gives the WCC team better vision to bring our clients’ dreams into reality.”

The new RVLT LED lighting products provide optimal illumination and burn up to 90% cooler than the original fluorescent fixtures. Within each of the 12 custom workshop departments, the LED lighting emits a cleaner and brighter light, which allows for higher visibility and greater precision on custom projects. Additionally, in the showroom, thin panel, overhead LED lighting fixtures illuminate the die-cast cars below, highlighting the exquisite details of each custom vehicle.

“The nice thing about an LED retrofit is that you can do a quality, one-for-one swap using 65% less energy,” said Vincent Alonzi, VP Network Sales, RVLT. “We are a 100% LED company; we are trying to create a higher quality of light with a significant costs savings.”

“WCC is the industry leader in custom auto styling solutions - with only the cleanest, most innovative and design-conscious solutions for their business. This retrofit design redefines what automobile showroom lighting can be,” said Ken Ames, VP Sourcing, RVLT.

The new renovation project was showcased in a two-part series of the television show, West Coast Customs, on Fox Sports 2. Part one aired on December 21st and the airdate for part two is TBD.
