Phoenix Products Company has partnered with two internationally recognized organizations to serve ports and terminals. By joining with these new distributors in Europe, Liftcom BV, and Southeast Asia, Portek Systems & Equipment Pte Ltd, Phoenix is able to provide lighting to more customers in these regions.
 

Phoenix proudly announces Liftcom BV as a master distributor for Europe. Liftcom provides maintenance and engineering services to terminals throughout Europe. Liftcom specializes in independent structural consultancy and basic design of steel and mechanical structures. Managing Director of Liftcom, Jethro van Eersel, states “In terms of quality and service, Liftcom has found an equal in Phoenix for LED port lighting equipment. Customers experiencing these LED lights for the first time are astounded by the quality of light output produced from such minimal use of energy. Phoenix manufactures LED lights that are significantly cutting costs for the port industry while delivering incredible quality of light vital to work in port applications.”


Portek Systems & Equipment Pte Ltd, a master distributor for Singapore and the surrounding countries, has extensive expertise in port engineering, management and information technology. They serve existing and emerging markets in the port industry. Portek CEO, Mr. Tok Soon Chong said, “Portek is truly excited and honored to be the long term strategic partner of Phoenix Products. With our global network and presence in port industries, we are confident that Phoenix Products will make a significant impact on ports globally. Given their ability to withstand extreme vibration, Phoenix lighting fixtures have a proven track record of long service lives, saving users substantial replacement costs. Energy costs alone may be reduced by up to 70% with these LED lamps as compared to conventional fixtures. Furthermore, a key factor of Phoenix LED lights is the instant-on feature that eliminates the 20 minute wait time to fully illuminate as most of the lights used on port equipment today require.”


Phoenix Products CEO, Scott Fredrick, states “We are proud to team up with two industry leading companies, Liftcom and Portek, making it easier for us to provide the best products and customer service to our clients on a global level.” Phoenix Products has provided a complete range of lighting for container and bulk handling equipment for the last 20 years and recently initiated the industry transition to LED technology. Traditional lighting generates an incredibly high energy cost that requires constant maintenance attention. Both Liftcom BV and Portek Systems & Equipment Pte Ltd are positioned to introduce the benefits of LED technology allowing ports and terminals to trial fixtures for evaluation.
