Reusable Solutions Result in Significant Cost and Environmental Savings

Union City, CA based Finelite designs and manufactures high performance, environmentally sustainable lighting solutions and products for commercial, educational, and healthcare facilities. The company offers more than 25 product lines.

Finelite makes great use of many types of reusable transport packaging materials for storing and handling parts, and for shipping materials between its factory and its strategic partners in Livermore, CA and China. The reusable solutions include tarps, straight-wall stackable plastic crates, plastic collapsible containers, and trays. In addition, racking systems are used throughout its warehouse.

With technical support and grant funding from the Use Reusables campaign, led by public agency StopWaste, Finelite has carefully designed all of its reusable products to reduce waste and support lean manufacturing.
