Redpaths Signs Agreement with BLS for LED Solutions

Redpaths Signs Agreement with BLS for Innovative LED Solutions

Leading supplier of electrical products in the South Island – Redpath Ltd - has signed a business agreement to work with innovative kiwi company Business Lighting Solutions (BLS).

The agreement will see Redpaths’ operating as a key distributor of BLS’ New Zealand-designed LED products across the South Island. It will also assist BLS with facilitating the commissioning of large-scale lighting installations across South Island-based industries.

“With 70 years in the electrical industry and coverage from Nelson to Invercargill, we think BLS complements our business of providing the right solution for the end user, with quality fittings and energy efficiency a top priority,” Redpaths CEO Tony Saunders said.

Established in 2008, BLS has been quietly notching up a number of business successes across New Zealand and Australia, with its innovative kiwi-designed LED products and unique lighting solutions model called Project Assure.

BLS Commercial Director Paul Stoddart said the company was proving to be a winner in all regards, from its locally-designed products through to its turnkey solutions focussed on the needs of industrial and commercial clients.

“We’re able to tailor-design products and solutions to meet the specific needs of New Zealand businesses,” Paul said.

“At the same time, we are effectively helping companies achieve significant savings better and safer working environments for employees.

“To date, we’ve worked with leading blue chip organisations across all industry sectors including NZI, State Insurance, Air New Zealand, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, Turners and Growers – to name a few.

“Smart business operators benefit from a compelling range of products and services that together deliver significant savings, in terms of energy use and maintenance costs. The BLS model is proven and effective.”

Paul said BLS was delighted to have signed an agreement with Redpaths.

“While we’ve already been working with great success on a number of South Island operations including CDHB and Coolstore Nelson, this agreement paves the way for more companies to now access all the savings and benefits of using a truly New Zealand LED lighting solutions company.”
