WIITRAC Elevator Sdn Bhd has returned as a silver sponsor for Penang Starwalk 2019 after a successful partnership last year.
Managing director Winson Teh Kean Wei said that as a specialist in energy-saving and eco-friendly smart lifts, the company believed in giving back to society, especially through healthy living events.
He said this after handing over the sponsorship to Star Media Group client brand marketing team lead Andy Tan at the company’s headquarters in Juru.
On the company’s products, Teh said they are made with 95% recyclable materials and are suitable for private homes, heritage buildings and larger developments alike.
“There is no need for a base structure like that required by conventional wire-rope hydraulic elevators. Instead, our lifts use a screw-and-nuts mounting concept which is more space-efficient.
“Owners of homes can simply mount our lift on the exterior. As there’s minimal impact on the structure, our lifts can be a great solution for heritage buildings.
“Every element of our lifts can be custom-made, ” Teh added, referring to the wide range of colour palettes, material finishes and lighting design available.
The lifts are equipped with a SmartSafety system that ensures one is able to get out even during a power failure.
Manufactured in Sweden, the lifts are CE-certified, a warranty that fulfils high requirements of safety and reliability to meet stringent European regulations.
The company’s lifts have been installed at Penang Tech Dome, Penang Digital Library and homes of prominent people as well as nursing homes and care centres.
Penang Starwalk 2019 will be held at Gurney Drive on Sept 22. It is organised by Star Media Group Bhd.
Gurney Paragon Mall is the venue provider while F&N Beverages Marketing Sdn Bhd is the official beverage partner.
The event’s platinum sponsor is YTL Communications Sdn Bhd.
Other silver sponsors besides Wiitrac Elevator are Indofood (M) Food Industries Sdn Bhd, BookDoc, Penang Turf Club and Ewein Zenith Sdn Bhd.
