22/07/2013

Irish-headquartered company PCH International has entered into a partnership with Verde LED to install an energy efficient lighting programme in one of its Shenzhen-based manufacturing facilities as well as PCH’s new US headquarters due to open shortly in San Francisco.

Verde LED is a specialist in commercial LED lighting solutions with operations in US, UK and Ireland and a global distribution network.

The new LED lighting programme will deliver improvements in energy efficiency, light quality and durability. It will also reduce energy consumption by 60pc, reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 270 tons per year in Shenzhen, and will have an economic payback of two years

PCH CEO Liam Casey described this as “a fantastic collaboration between Irish and Chinese companies”.

“There is huge potential to replicate this programme across our supply chain in China, helping to minimize the impact of manufacturing on the environment as well as reduce energy costs.”

This is the latest in a number of sustainability initiatives that PCH is implementing in the supply chain.
