all in one solar street light

On March 20th, 2019, I got an inquiry from a Nigerian customer for the 80w solar-led street light. We have quoted the solar street light 800 pcs to them. The customer accepted the price but they need some time to audit our company.

They were asking a lot of questions about the solar street light specifications; I also filled out a lot of supplier audit forms. ISO9001/TS16949/IP66 was requested by them as well. They spent half a year investigating our company’s ability. Our engineering team and I were very patient to answer all the questions they had.

But after every investigation and audit was passed at end of the 2019. They still have not placed the order. I followed up every month, but no reply from the customer side.

In April 2020, I received an e-mail from the customer side they told me they decided to visit our factory in June. I was very excited when received this mail as it was been half year and no news from this customer. They spent 1 week auditing our factory in June. Finally, they were happy with our company process and quality.

On June 15th, 2020,  I received an 80w solar street light PO from this client. it took almost 3 months to follow this customer, and finally, I got a PO from them. As these samples were ready to produce and it was taking one and half years to confirm the samples, During these 1.5 years we have sent 6 times samples to them for confirmation. Finally, we got approval for the end of the sample of 2020.

On Jan 17th, 2020, I got the production PO from this customer. It was taking us 1.5 years to get this project successful. But it was worth this is what we need to do for our clients. We also believe suppliers and clients always need to do win-win business relationships.

Up to now, the client has placed backorders and is quite satisfied with our quality and plans to have a long-term forecast with us for 10 years production contract signed. Since then, we’ve become a top Solar Street Light Supplier in Nigeria.
