Digital Lumens Intelligent LED Lighting Deployed in 10 Frialsa Sites Across Mexico
Cuautitlan, Mexico and Boston, March 21, 2014 – Digital Lumens, the leader in intelligent LED systems, announced that its customer, Frialsa, welcomed the Massachusetts Innovation Partnership delegation to its facility in Cuautitlan, Mexico yesterday. (Spanish language version here.)
The delegation, organized by Governor Deval Patrick and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, highlights the innovation partnership between Massachusetts and Mexico, where there are already strong ties. This is the first trade trip of 2014.
Frialsa, an industry leader in the storage and distribution of chilled and frozen products across Mexico, has deployed Digital Lumens Intelligent LED Lighting System technology across 10 facilities and nearly one million square feet of space as part of its company-wide commitment to sustainable business practices. The Digital Lumens system is saving 80% on lighting energy use across the multi-site deployment, while providing detailed data on energy usage and lighting system performance.
“We are honored to host the delegation and showcase the Digital Lumens technology,” said Ricardo Garcia Romero, Corporate Engineer at Frialsa. “After the success at the first facility with Digital Lumens, we have expanded it to nine additional sites. Digital Lumens helps us meet our sustainability goals, while improving our operations. In addition to intelligent LEDs, we also have wind-power generation, rainwater harvesting, and other sustainability programs in place.”
“Our sincerest thanks to the Frialsa team hosting us and for its vision and commitment to finding sustainable solutions,” said Tom Pincince, President and CEO of Digital Lumens. “Our thanks also go out to H2O Arquitectos, our strong local partner. We are deeply committed to the Mexico market and appreciate the work that Governor Patrick’s administration does to strengthen international ties and support the Massachusetts innovation economy.”
“Lasting growth in the 21st century global economy will come from our competitiveness in global markets and opening up Massachusetts to the markets where we share strengths,” said Governor Patrick. “The leaders in business and government and venture capitalists of Latin America’s growth centers are eager to collaborate with us because they recognize that Massachusetts is an innovation hub with a disciplined strategy for growth.”
“It’s exciting to see Massachusetts companies expanding their business on the world stage,” said Secretary Sullivan. “These cost-saving technologies developed in Massachusetts and deployed in Mexico stimulate both economies, while helping us realize our mutual goals of a cleaner environment.”
“Massachusetts companies are developing innovative solutions to the full spectrum of clean energy challenges and bringing them to the global markets,” said MassCEC CEO, Alicia Barton.
Frialsa has been committed to total quality for over 30 years, and today stands as the leader of the cold supply chain in México and the largest multi-site cold storage infrastructure in Latin America. Our sustainable growth strategy brings us close to our customers, who rely on best practices of controlled temperature storage, distribution and special on-demand services that only our more than 20 sites across México can provide.
