Snap-On Tools Installs Induction Light Fixtures at Iowa Location

EverLast® Lighting Is Used in Franchise Facility Lighting Upgrade

JACKSON, MI--(Marketwired - Oct 17, 2013) - Snap-On Inc. is a leading global innovator, manufacturer and marketer of tools, equipment, diagnostics, repair information and systems solutions for professional users performing critical tasks. Many of its products and services include hand and power tools, tool storage, diagnostics software, information and management systems, shop equipment and other solutions for vehicle dealerships and repair centers, as well as customers in industries including aviation and aerospace, agriculture, construction, government and military, mining, natural resources, power generation and technical education.

Recently, Snap-On Tools partnered with Crescent Electric Supply of Mason City, Iowa and NRG Sales located in Des Moines, Iowa in an effort to seek out a commercial lighting solution that would meet their facility codes while improving illumination, and significantly lowering energy costs. As a result, the company decided on 170 EverLast® 300 watt induction High Bay fixtures. "We selected EverLast® at that time because of the common failures with the existing T5 lighting in this particular facility and wanted something that was guaranteed to be energy efficient," explained Leonard Nicol, Representative of NRG Sales. The EverLast® 300 watt High Bay fixtures were installed in an effort to lower energy consumption, and increase visual acuity at a Snap-On Tools location in Algona, Iowa. 

Following the success of the first project, Snap-On Tools decided to move forward again with EverLast® by installing 180 additional EverLast® 300 watt High Bay fixtures in the same location. "One of the biggest incentives was that the fixtures were rated at 100,000 hours, and that the customer could replace each fixture one-for-one," Nicol commented.

Snap-On also derives income from various financing programs to facilitate the sales of its products. Products and services are sold through the company's franchisee, company-direct, distributor and Internet channels. Founded in 1920, Snap-On is a $2.9 billion, S&P 500 company headquartered in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

EverLast® induction light fixtures are 50-70% more energy efficient than metal halides and last up to 100,000 hours, making them virtually maintenance free for up to 15 years. The EverLast® 300 watt Aluminum High Bay fixtures provide a more natural and high color rendition light quality unlike traditional Metal Halide fixtures. EverLast® induction lighting fixtures are also available with a dimmable option, providing even more energy savings while areas are vacant. 

The EverLast® High Bay fixtures are commonly used in large scale facilities and can be found installed in COBO Hall in Detroit, Michigan, the Tulsa Expo Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
