Lighting Equipment: Focus on the Long Term

Our Lead Service Technician, Jon Lamm, is on the road every week helping our clients to update their facilities with better lighting and rigging equipment. He recently shared this:

“Always focus on your infrastructure. In the long term, this will serve you the best. It’s worth the biggest investment. Getting new lights that do pretty things? That’s great, but if you don’t have the power to support them, and they fail, you’re out all of the investment you just made.

“Future expansion is where people tend to be a little short-sighted. They will lean towards the cheaper immediate option to get them up and running where they need to be, but then the system is antiquated 5 years down the road and they’re doing it again. There is a lot of technology movement with LEDs and power controls and moving forward the more expensive option might actually be cheaper in the long run if they take the time to go through and actually read the tech notes and the specs and what they’re wanting to do with the system.”
