Eco Engineering Helps Another Non-Profit Organization Reduce Expenses

Eco Engineering, the largest independent design-build engineering firm in the US energy efficient lighting industry, announced today that it has completed a pro-bono project for the Freestore Foodbank in Cincinnati, OH valued at over $40,000.

(February 27, 2020 Cincinnati, Ohio)  Nearly 100 Eco Engineering employees from locations across the country, including those working in the company headquarters in Cincinnati, volunteered their time to upgrade the lighting system for the Cincinnati-based Freestore Foodbank. Nearly 400 interior and exterior fixtures in the 110,000 square foot Mayerson Distribution Center were either retrofitted or fully replaced with energy efficient LED lighting technology during the all-day project. Freestore Foodbank President & CEO, Kurt Reiber stated,

“Eco Engineering is helping to set the tone for our region. As we look to find new ways to not only feed the lines, but also shorten them, we need the business community to continue to work with us on new ways to support our shared mission. Following what is unique to their business, Eco Engineering is helping us save over $12,000 per year by upgrading our lighting at no cost to the Freestore Foodbank. This upgrade reduces our energy costs, makes the facility safer for our employees and partners, and allows us to better support families in the region. The impact of the project is that we will be able to provide 375,000 more meals over the next ten years!”

Eco Engineering provides energy efficient lighting upgrade services to both Fortune 1000 firms and Energy Services Companies (ESCOs). The company has a unique profile in that they are a national engineering firm which designs innovative lighting systems to replace the existing lighting infrastructure of major facilities and installs these products and control systems to optimize energy savings. In 2019, the Company implemented more than 250 projects across 46 States, 5 Provinces of Canada, Puerto Rico, and Guam.

The Eco Engineering company vision is to be a force for good while valuing employees, delighting customers, supporting communities, and conserving the world’s natural resources. Tom Kirkpatrick, President and CEO of Eco Engineering said:

“This project upholds our values to support a community where we live and work, while providing a benefit to our environment that makes us proud. The reduction in energy consumption could be compared to planting 17 acres of trees, removing 19 cars from the road, or saving 8,427 gallons of gasoline each of the next ten years,”
