SYSTEMS SUNLIGHT S.A. -a member of Olympia Group led by Panos Germanos– received the Excellent Performance Award at the Transport & Logistics Awards 2015, held on Monday 25 May 2015 at Balux Prive, in the presence of fine representatives of the business world. The company stood out in the category “Green Product or Service”, thanks to the important contribution of its products to green growth.
SUNLIGHT’s distinction comes as the result of its continuous investment in developing innovative green products, as well as its overall performance in the areas of ecology and environment. In particular, through its strategic planning, the company offers a wide range of environmentally-friendly and fully recyclable motive power (traction) batteries, which are used in electric forklift trucks. Additionally, with a view to offer integrated and reliable energy storage solutions, SUNLIGHT offers a wide range of accessories, such as specially designed chargers that reduce energy consumption, thus helping to reduce emissions resulting from the operation of Logistics Centers.
The culmination of the company’s strategy for actions in line with sustainable growth was the establishment of SUNLIGHT Recycling, the most modern lead acid batteries recycling unit in Europe with a recycling capacity of 25,000 tons of batteries per year, through an investment of €31m.
“The Transport & Logistics sector is particularly important for us, since the traction batteries we design and produce in Xanthi fully cover the needs of Material Handling globally. This award confirms the full alignment of SUNLIGHT’S spectrum of products with the protection of the environment and sustainable development, while it also gives us an extra incentive to develop our strategy further”, said Mrs. V. Kokothaki, Head of Customer Service & Logistics, while commenting on the company’s distinction.
