Wgtn company Ecopoint awarded top supplier award in China

Wellington company Ecopoint awarded top supplier award in China

Ecopoint, the New Zealand owned, Wellington based company that specialises in LED lighting solutions, has announced that it has been awarded the ‘top supplier’ award from one of its Chinese customers, HAILI.

HAILI is one of China’s largest refrigeration manufacturers. HAILI’s core business is the design and manufacture of commercial refrigeration equipment, including cold setting machines, cold mixing machines, commercial refrigerated cabinets, and commercial refrigeration display cabinets. HAILI awarded Ecopoint a Gold Award, rating them Number 1 for product quality, Number 1 for delivery, and Number 1 for ease of doing business.

Paul Wilton, Ecopoint’s founder and director, said: “We are really thrilled to receive this award. It is really unheard of to receive recognition like this from a Chinese company, let alone one that is such a big player in the refrigeration business. It just goes to show that New Zealand companies can do well in China. We are a New Zealand based business, producing our lights in China, and then selling them to the Chinese!”

Ecopoint focuses on the manufacture and supply of top quality, energy efficient, LED lighting solutions. Their range of LED lighting solutions is steadily growing and evolving, as LED technology rapidly develops. At present, the core range comprises an array of tubes, including those designed specifically for refrigeration, as well as panels, floodlights, street lights, all-purpose bulbs, high bays and low bays. All of Ecopoint’s range is mercury and UV free, RoHS compliant and approved to Australia and New Zealand safety standards.

All of Ecopoint’s super-efficient LED lights offer superior quality lighting with the added benefit of hugely reducing the amount of power used for lighting by up to 70%. Their (average) 50,000 hour life expectancy ensures that maintenance and replacements costs are substantially reduced. Furthermore, Ecopoint LED lights are simple to retrofit, making the change to LED simple. All of Ecopoint’s LED lights are 100% recyclable and come with a (minimum) three year warranty. Ecopoint’s clients include Cocoa Cola, Pepsi, Schweppes, Foodstuffs, Wellington City Council, BHP and Skope, as well as several Government Agencies.

In claiming accolades from HAILI, Ecopoint beat out other suppliers include Philips, ACC Compressors, Danfoss, EMBRACO, Elstat, ADDA, Schaffner and Carel. HAILI sells its completed refrigeration products to customers including Coca-Cola, Cadbury, Pepsi, Nestle and Haagen-Dazs.

Paul Wilton said: “We are really proud to have been recognised in this way. It is great that our efforts to grow the company are paying off. We look forward to continuing to grow our business both in China, and locally”.
