Since 2012, Sony UK Technology Centre has worked with the Nova Scotia-based LED Roadway Lighting to relocate the manufacture, test and shipping of its street lanterns for the UK market. 

The accolade recognises the successful partnership between the two companies, which has seen lead time for the products, which are used by a number of UK councils, reduced from 16 weeks to just eight weeks as well as a three per cent cost saving on each individual lantern.

Winner of the ‘Collaborative Partnership Award’ Ian Worgan of Sony UK Technology Centre, said: “This award is the icing on the cake for the team involved in this partnership and celebrates their hard work and effort and demonstrates our commitment to collaboration and supply chain excellence.”

Huw Convery at LED Roadway Lighting, said: “This is a massive achievement, the team at Sony UK Technology Centre have worked so hard. Sony has reduced lead time by around 50% and we can attribute 50% of our current turnover to this association.” More information about the ESTnet awards can be found here http://www.estnetawards.co.uk/2015-awards-winners/.
