LC Manufacturing upgrades air compressors

Since 1975, LC is a Michigan-based, closed-die, hot steel, forging company. LC Manufacturing upgraded their compressed air system with a state of the art compressed air controller that tied their entire system together. They were able to turn off two air compressors that had previously been running continuously, reducing their overall energy use throughout the facility.

Given the relative small size of our Company we worked diligently with [Consumers Energy] to pursue possible energy savings. We had a dedicated program manager to facilitate the necessary purchases and coordination with [Consumers Energy] personnel.
