Waxman Energy: The Renewable Energy Solutions Experts
Within this issue of Sustainability Today, we have selected Waxman Energy, a dedicated solar & EV distribution company, as our Sustainable Energy Company of the Year.
Waxman Energy is part of the Waxman Group, a family run business that was first established over 60 years ago. Waxman Energy has gained unprecedented success since the company’s inception and has become one of the UK’s largest distributors of solar PV modules, battery storage and mounting solutions. Maintaining an expansive range of products Waxman Energy provides solutions for all residential and commercial solar installations.
Due to the challenges that are facing the UK solar market, many competitors and companies have had to close. Determined to ride out the storm, Waxman Energy has embraced the uncertainty and dominates the solar market through their relentless ambition and devotion to increasing their product portfolio and exploration of other market options including the EV market and product training.
Speaking of the factors that have enabled Waxman Energy to continue its growth during the harder times that the industry is facing, Sarah Wallace, the newly appointed Sales Director for Waxman Energy noted, “within the company and team, we are very proactive. Although there have admittedly been many challenges within the industry, we feel we have a strong working business model and that we ultimately know our main goal and focus.”
The team at Waxman Energy is truly the driving force behind the business, offering a plethora of services and the company has become highly regarded as a one-stop-shop for PV solar installations. Stocking an all-encompassing range of equipment and products to assist contractors in the installation of PV energy systems, Waxman Energy supplies: solar PV modules, grid-tied inverters, PV power storage, mounting systems, PV accessories and EV chargers.
From their head office in Elland, West Yorkshire, Waxman Energy looks after their customers from the initial design process to delivery. Using their shared expertise and technical knowledge the team at Waxman Energy provides the best consultancy and advice for their clients’ solar project. With customer satisfaction being of the utmost importance to Waxman Energy, the company maintains a selection of specialist services including designs, technical help, quotation consultancy and an honest helpful support team. Waxman Energy goes the extra step forward in terms of its services and has invested in a purpose-built training centre, specifically designed to teach installers how to correctly install a range of products from battery storage to mounting solutions and EV chargers.
“Our main focus,” Sarah stated, “is to work with as many installers as possible. We offer a range of services including training sessions to make sure that installers have a long term plan.”
Waxman Energy takes pride in the products that they distribute and is determined to provide the highest quality products available from a selection of the world’s leading brands. Through the company’s dedication to quality, it strives to create relationships with manufacturers and customers that are long-lasting, trusting and efficient, to showcase the quality and excellence that Waxman Energy encompasses.
In terms of latest developments for Waxman Energy, the company has created many valued partnerships in recent years with their most notable this year being their collaboration with Myenergi, which has enabled Waxman Energy to introduce the Zappi EV car charger into their product range. Zappi is an eco-smart EV charge point that features specialist eco charging modes adaptable for homeowners with grid-tied microgeneration systems. Working alongside the ‘zappi’ are the myenergi ‘eddi’ and ‘harvi’ products allowing homeowners to easily divert surplus energy around the home and monitor through an in-house hub and mobile app.
Another notable partnership for Waxman is with leading manufacturing company VARTA Storage. A manufacturer of energy storage devices for both households and larger scale storage requirements, Waxman has introduced the battery storage system by Varta Storage into its product range and now distributes both the Varta Pulse 3 and Pulse 6.
Upon receiving the award for ‘Company of the Year’, Sarah commented, “we are really excited and proud to receive the award. It feels amazing to have achieved something like this and it is a testament to all the hard work and dedication spent helping to maintain Waxman Energy’s market presence”.
Praising her dedicated team, Sarah believes the achievements and success gained over the past year have all been down to the hard work and determination put in by the growing Waxman Energy team. “I’d like to thank everyone for all of their work” Sarah added, “and for us to continue the hard work into the future to gain even further success”.
After an extremely challenging yet positive year for Waxman Energy, it is clear to see the company’s devotion to the solar energy industry and their commitment to providing the most innovative solutions and products for energy efficiency.
