Crescent Electric Helps Pita Pan Put Saving in its Pockets

EAST DUBUQUE, Ill., June 6, 2014 — Crescent Electric Supply Company, one of the 10 largest electrical distributors in the nation, recently partnered with KSA Lighting, of Hanover Park, to install nearly 300 EverLast® commercial lighting fixtures at Pita Pan, a leading supplier of Pita and flat bread to restaurant chains and wholesale bakery customers throughout North America.

Pita Pan, based in Chicago, replaced exactly 279 400-watt high pressure sodium fixtures with EverLast induction 250-watt IP65 Aluminum High Bay fixtures that produce an equivalent light output allowing them to achieve maximum savings. EverLast® induction light fixtures are 50-70% more energy efficient than HIDs and last up to 100,000 hours, making them virtually maintenance free for up to 15 years.
