Total solution for all your emergency lighting requirement

What is one sign that every building cannot do without, especially during emergencies?

The answer to this question is of course the emergency lighting and exit signs that we have grown so accustomed to in every building that we tend to disregard their importance.

In our interview with the General Manager of Maxspid Enterprise Pte Ltd, Mr James Wong, we found out that every emergency lighting sign in Singapore has to adhere strictly to the CP19 standard enforced by the Civil Defence. This fire safety standard is to ensure that there is consistency in the emergency signs islandwide as well as to set a benchmark amongst competitors.

Maxspid has been a veteran in this industry since 1978 and has been manufacturing a comprehensive range of emergency lighting products since its inception.

Maxspid manufacturers a comprehensive range of emergency lighting products.

In buildings such as the Singapore Changi Airport, Singapore Management University, Fullerton Hotel and Vivo City, the emergency lighting and exit signs are manufactured and supplied by Maxspid.

In this small industry of emergency lighting signs manufacturers, Maxspid has set itself apart by attaining attain the prestigious ISO 9000 QMS standard in 1993. Since then, they have remained the only one in Singapore to receive this award. This not only gives them an edge overseas and be one step ahead of their competitors but it also proves their dedication towards quality management.

Having established its presence in Singapore, Maxspid ventured successfully into Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Hong Kong and Macau, where it has established many distributorships.

In this niche industry where there are hardly any differentiating factors, Maxspid has challenged itself to innovate its products. Its most recent offering is the Zebra cold cathode fluorescent lamp.

The Zebra can last for up to 50,000 hours and uses only 4 watts of energy.

According to Mr James Wong, “LED used to be the hype in the 90s, but its brightness is still not stable. It only allows about 10,000 hours of burning before its brightness starts to depreciate.”

“The Zebra, however, lasts up to 50,000 hours and uses only 4 watts of energy. Its brightness is also stable throughout,” added Mr Wong.

Their latest offering has since taken off and is doing very well both locally and overseas.

The launch of BuySingaporeTM in November 2006 has also helped Maxspid to tap on the matching portal’s robust database to touch base with potential customers overseas.

“BuySingaporeTM helps us to make the first step, which is very important for us. Sometimes we do not know where to find overseas distributors but now we can make use of BuySingaporeTM to break into international markets,” said Mr Wong.

With a turnover of S$6 million in 2006, Maxspid plans to be even more aggressive this year by moving into markets such as Vietnam, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, South Africa and Indonesia. It also has plans to break into the UAE and Saudi Arabia markets.

Maxspid is also a member of the Singapore Lighting Consortium which comprises of established companies in the lighting industry to provide professional and integrated solutions for its customers.
