It’s more than just words for Publix as they go green with LED lighting
01. Who Did We Help
Publix, established in 1930, has over 1215 stores and is one of the largest volume super markets in the United States. Publix’s mission statement challenges the company to be intolerant of waste by examining processes within retail, warehouse and corporate locations. Green is more than just the color of their logo; it’s their commitment to be responsible citizens and AGI was asked to be a part of that commitment.
02. The Challenge
Publix needed a new partner to handle lighting maintenance and LED retrofits for their Florida west coast stores. AGI was selected based on their track record in servicing the customer quickly and effectively. In Publix’s effort to go green, AGI was chosen to perform LED fixture retrofits for the interior lighting in 27 stores. AGI was awarded the maintenance work for 204 stores on a Friday before Labor Day and started providing maintenance support on the following Tuesday as well as putting together retrofit install teams and acquiring product to meet an aggressive schedule.
03. Our Solution
In order to provide lighting maintenance to over 200 stores, AGI quickly increased our field services staff in our Clearwater and Virginia Beach locations to handle the over 300 monthly calls. A team of project managers and field service crews are available 24/7 to handle lighting maintenance work orders. We also put together four retrofit crews to conduct LED fixture change outs during the overnight business closing. We are able to change out over 400 fixtures within a week working only when the store is closed.
04. The Results
AGI takes and closes over 300 maintenance service calls every month with a goal to have zero calls not meet the established SLA. AGI has completed 27 store LED retrofits and because of our excellent performance at delivering a quality product ahead of schedule and at or below budget, we were awarded 57 additional stores in the Orlando and Miami market. AGI will also increase its maintenance footprint with Publix in the Miami area.
