Moscow Company to Supply German Clinics with LED Lamps
Varton, a Moscow-based company, has won a tender to deliver a test batch of innovative LED lamps to a hospital chain in Bavaria.
Based on the results of the test shipment, Varton may have a chance to secure a full-fledged contract with a chain of municipal clinics in Munich. According to the company's estimates, the chain could order up to 20,000 units for a total value of 40 million rubles.
Varton successfully sells its LED lamps in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The company's long-term plans include transition to a two-tier sales modes and the opening of manufacturing facilities abroad.
„In the near future, we plan to expand our brand's presence,“ said Mikhail Gruzdev, head of international sales at Varton. „We need to strengthen our positions in countries of the Middle East, including Syria and Iran, Africa, and in India. We will also continue developing our distributor network.“
„This example shows that a young Moscow company can compete with industry giants and provide products compliant with European quality standards,“ said Alexander Prokhorov, head of the Moscow Department of Investment and Industrial Policy.
According to him, the value of electric equipment exported from Moscow in January-May 2019 reached 587.7 million dollars. The majority of these products were shipped to CIS countries, Egypt and China.
„We must retain these markets, but they are not the only ones we focus on,“ said Alexander Prokhorov, head of the department. “We must think about expansion to boost our export performance.”
Varton is among exhibitors that will be showcased at the joint stand of Moscow's manufacturers at the Productronica trade fair in Munich on November 12-15, where Varton will introduce its latest smart lighting system AWADA.
The joint stand is organized by Mosprom, an export assistance and development organization under the Moscow Department of Investment and Industrial Policy.
