Ecopoint was founded eight years ago and has specialised in sustainable lighting solutions. This began with optimised products for the refrigeration industry, and has expanded into the wider commercial and industrial markets, both in New Zealand and internationally.
Ecopoint designs and produces LED solutions under licence by approved manufacturers in China, as well as sourcing other high quality products from specialist suppliers. Some of our projects have now been operating for well over 5 years and their continuing trouble-free operation is testament to our careful approach to quality control.
Every Ecopoint solution is backed by a team of dedicated lighting enthusiasts. Our technical people can help you with lighting designs and product selections for your specific project and application. If you need a business case to support your proposal, they can help with that as well.
The warehouse facility we operate in Wellington allows us to hold stock of popular products, giving us the best chance of being ableto meet your tight lead-time requirements. Our friendly administration team can help you with pricing, availability and logistics support.
While we spend our time 'treading lightly' with energy efficient and cost- effective solutions, we have developed an enviable footprint both locally and internationally. Commercial and industrial lighting solutions have been provided to organisations such as NZ Defence Force, Department of Corrections, NZ Police; Wellington, Whanganui, Christchurch & Invercargill Hospitals; Victoria, Lincoln & Canterbury Universities; Wellington, Porirua, Lower Hutt & Kapiti Coast Councils; Resene Paints, BOC, Toyota, Honeywell, Animates, Plumbing World, Number 1 Shoes, Stride Property Group, Argosy, Prime Property Group.
