European DIN Rail power supply manufacturer PULS has been awarded a prestigious LEED Gold certificate in recognition of the outstanding energy saving credentials of its new factory in China. The company was also awarded 50,000 Euros by the Suzhou Industrial Park Authority where the factory is located for the energy saving concepts incorporated in the building’s design.
LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building project meets the highest green building and performance standards.
The new PULS factory, which will be officially opened in October 2010, will employ around 450 people and provide additional production capacity for the company’s range of DIN Rail power supplies, mainly for the rapidly developing Chinese market.
Harry Moore, Managing Director of PULS UK said, "Our products are very much about high-efficiency and saving energy, so it’s fitting that our new factory should incorporate all the latest energy saving design and technology. Also, as China is one of PULS’s biggest potential markets, it makes sense to have a manufacturing plant as close to those customers as possible, rather than shipping products all the way from Europe."
