- October 12, 2015

Sungrid Group is proud to announce its selection as supplier of portable (solar) power and lighting solutions to the United Nations.

Following the agreement reached earlier this year, the last few months have already seen us co-ordinating worldwide distribution of our products across urgent disaster relief zones including Yemen, Burundi and Nepal.

Not only does this contract reinforce the quality and benefits of our product range, thereby increasing brand credibility but, most importantly, it is allowing us to fulfil one of our key objectives, that of improving the lives of others.

We have enormous respect for the United Nations and the many men and women involved in international disaster relief efforts, and are humbled and proud to play a part during these times of crisis.
