Straits Is Your Lighting Business Partner
One of the biggest differentiators between how Straits conducts business compared to our competitors is that we actually manufacture the products ourselves. Outsourcing production is the norm in the lighting industry, with the overwhelming majority of the companies simply rebranding these outsourced fixtures as their own. We decided to buck this trend by choosing to both manufacture and supply our products directly to contractors. The purpose behind this is to ensure that our supply chain is more efficient and streamlined than the competition, ultimately with the goal of reducing costs for the end customer.
Thanks to our unique business model, we are in total control of the manufacturing of our lights, giving us the final say in the quality, design and features of each lighting fixture. We are able to exploit this streamlined design and manufacturing process to be able to adjust, modify and improve designs based on extensive customer feedback and market research. Because of this our designs are some of the most competitive in the lighting industry, with a focus on purpose, energy efficiency and ease of installation and use. The success of your business is ultimately our business as well, and lighting contractors should take comfort in knowing that by choosing Straits Lighting as your industrial LED lighting supplier, you are choosing a solid business partner for the long haul.
Why Choose Straits LED Industrial Lighting?
Industrial lighting includes a broad spectrum of different applications, from basic strip lighting to high powered UFO high bays to overhead crane safety lights and more. The primary purpose of lighting for these applications is to not only provide visibility for personnel, but also to ensure their safety in the workplace and avoid otherwise preventable accidents. As the benefits of LED lighting in industrial applications is becoming increasingly apparent, many faculty managers are actively working on retrofitting or replacing their existing lighting systems with model LED technology. This exceptionally high demand has resulted in a plethora of different industrial LED lighting brands, styles and designs in the marketplace.
This astonishing variety of lighting fixtures has unfortunately brought with it considerable confusion for contractors who are trying to choose the right manufacturer. This decision is critical, due to the variance in fixture quality and performance, and choosing the wrong manufacturer can compromise large scale projects with underperforming or simply unreliable lighting fixtures.
Thankfully, the choice for contractors is easy with Straits. Our company has a well earned reputation as one of the top manufacturers of high performance fixtures that are constructed with high output LED chips powered by premium drivers and circuitry. All of our fixtures are rated for a service life of 50,000 hours, with many exceeding this under ideal ambient temperatures and environmental conditions.
When compared against the competition, our industrial lighting fixtures have a notably longer real world service life due to construction variances from other manufacturers as well as environmental factors. On top of this the industrial lighting fixtures manufactured by Straits produce noticeably higher Color Rendering Index (CRI) ratings than our competitors. This improves not only visibility for workers but also safety for higher traffic or high risk applications.
LED Industrial Light Supplier
Purchasing lighting fixtures directly from the manufacturer has multiple advantages, particularly in terms of cost savings and minimizing lead time. This is especially important for industrial lighting contractors because of the number of fixtures purchased for their typically large scale projects. Recognizing the importance of this, Straits sells directly to contractors instead of just suppliers like almost every other manufacturer on the market.
Our company has seen firsthand the significant benefits this provides to lighting professionals and electrical contractors, most notably in the simplification of supply chain and logistics as well as reducing individual unit costs. This reduction in costs allows our contractors to improve job margins, resulting in an increase in repeat business. We firmly believe that the success Straits has achieved since our founding is due to our business model focused on the mutually beneficial relationship between manufacturers and contractors.
Our manufacturer-direct business model not only provides contractors with significant price savings, lead time is also reduced quite a bit. Thanks to our complete inventory of products stocked in our Wixom, Michigan warehouse, there is only a 1-2 business day turnaround time after an order has been placed. This gives our customers the best possible delivery schedule, adding to the consistent continuation of their projects. The improved lead time is especially important for projects where design plans are changed, as this often occurs on a tight schedule.
In addition to excellent pricing and fast turnaround times, our LED lights are regarded as some of the top performing in the lighting industry. The lighting fixtures and bulbs we manufacture have high efficiency ratings and extraordinarily long service lives, which adds significant value to end users in terms of cost savings and reduced maintenance. When combined with the high color rendering performance of our LED chips, it should be no surprise that so many choose Straits as their primary lighting supplier. Our goal is to make selling your jobs easier with the peace of mind knowing that your customers will end up satisfied with a superior lighting product.
LED Industrial Light Wholesale
With contractors facing ever increasing competition in the lighting industry, every dollar counts. This is especially true for those who are purchasing fixtures in bulk, and it is for this reason many business owners and material buyers choose to source their lighting directly with a manufacturer such as Straits in order to minimize costs and maximize profitability.
Due to the fact that we are not only the manufacturer but also the supplier, we are able to offer extraordinarily low pricing for contractors that would normally only be available to suppliers. When this is combined with our attentive customer service and fast shipping times, it should come as no surprise that Straits has some of the highest customer satisfaction and retention rates in the lighting industry.
With lighting projects becoming ever more complex, contractors are seeking to streamline their material procurement process as much as possible. One of the most obvious and effective ways to do this is to utilize as many standardized fixtures as is feasible for a project – reducing the number of various makes, models and sizes required to be stored in inventory. For common repeat projects such as warehouses, manufacturing facilities and crane loading zones, this tactic is especially effective in reducing costs and simplifying project management.
Even though we offer our lights at exceptionally low wholesale prices, our fixtures provide class leading performance, as well as excellent durability and quality for trouble free service. When this is combined with all of the other benefits of our lighting fixtures, it truly solidifies the decision to make Straits lighting your source for bulk lighting supplies. Being able to readily stock up on top of the line industrial LED lighting fixtures for use in current and future projects is simply smart business. Combining this with the knowledge of the performance and longevity of these fixtures, lighting contractors can have increased confidence in selling their lighting projects knowing that they have a rock solid business partner in Straits Lighting.
