In the highly competitive LED sector, it takes more than just quality products for manufacturers to thrive. OKT Lighting Int’l Group Ltd has managed to stay ahead of the game by choosing to focus entirely on one big market and in just a few years it has already gained a firm footing in the market. Now it’s ready to go further. By Lydia Li from Hong Kong Trade Development Council .
Founded in 2008, specialises in research, manufacturing and sales of commercial LED lighting fixtures, with a monthly production of 50,000 products and monthly production value at US$1.51m . Its main products include panel lights, troffers, downlights, linear pendant fixtures ,linear High bay and emergency back-up drivers, all of which have achieved certifications such as UL, ETL, Energy Star, DLC, TITLE 24, TÜV, CSA, SASO and FCC, and come with a minimum five-year warranty. Some have also been granted design patents on the Chinese mainland.
Strong in R&D and quality control
“OKT has always been focused on research and development. Every quarter we have new models coming out of the pipeline and we produce LED products that are more energy-efficient, cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing than those already on the market. Installations of our products are much easier as well, helping customers to further save on labour costs,” says OKT chief executive officer Allan Zhang.
He continues, “To illustrate our R&D capabilities, we were the first Chinese LED manufacturer to successfully create an LED panel light with luminous efficacy of 130 lumens per watt.” Its extremely low product defect rate — less than one per cent — is another testament to OKT’s strong R&D, as well as a result of its stringent quality control. In fact, all products have to undergo a series of tests before leaving the factory, including a hi-pot test, light distribution test, light depreciation test, drop test, vibration test and integrating sphere test.
