Employing around 100 people, Greenled is by no means an industry giant when it comes to size, but is more than equipped to be able to compete with others on a global scale. “We often find that big corporations tend to favour doing business with other big, global companies, but as a smaller company, we’re able to control all stages of production easily. No need to wait for a shipment for weeks on end – we are able to tend to our clients instantly,” explains Pertti Tahvanainen, Greenled’s managing director. One of Greenled’s core values is sustainable development, and the company’s production is solely based in Finland, meaning that the company can easily trace the origin of all materials used. “81 per cent of all components used in our products come from Finland. This means that we’re able to react quickly and vouch for our products’ quality, as 78  |  Issue 111  |  April 2018

well as their sustainability and recyclability,” says Tahvanainen. What makes Greenled unique is that with a single contract, they cover all their clients’ needs. “For indoor lighting, we offer a turnkey approach: from the initial design process to production and installing and long-term maintenance, we take care of everything – allowing our customers to focus on their business without unnecessary worries,” Tahvanainen states. By offering customers long-term solutions, Greenled is able to maximise energy savings and save clients money in the long-run. “By focusing on high-quality lighting solutions, we are able to cut down on the products’ lifespan costs, which saves money in the bigger picture. Our customers notice that savings start to accumulate from their first electricity bill onwards,” says Tahvanainen.

In addition to great energy savings, the company strongly believes that correctly chosen, smart lighting brings a wide range of added value to a business. “Our high-quality solutions improve occupational safety and efficiency, add comfort and boost sales, and take energyefficiency to a whole new level,” says Tahvanainen. “One of our clients was able to increase production by 28 per cent after we had designed their lighting. We have a strong track-record, and our satisfied customers and excellent references speak for themselves and are a reflection of our expertise.”
