Goal Zero, the world’s leading portable power and solar manufacturer, will arrive on our shores in May 2017 via local distributor Wintec Solutions. Hailing from the USA, Goal Zero has developed an innovative line of sustainable portable power solutions and lighting accessories since 2010.       

Goal Zero’s mission is to lead the renewable, portable power industry through education and innovation. The first Goal Zero products were developed to fulfil the needs of villagers in the DRC through humanitarian initiatives. The brand now houses an incredible range of compact, mid size and heavy duty battery, plus solar solutions, providing power to your smartphones, laptops, TVs, fridges and more. The autumn 2017 catalogue (available for download here) showcases beautifully designed products to suit all camping, emergency and professional power needs.           

The appointment of Wintec Solutions as the sub Saharan Africa partner was confirmed in March. Wintec Solutions specialises in distributing high end outdoor and sporting brands to retail and B2B channels in sub Saharan Africa with expertise in managing portable power and travel brands. An announcement on retail partners stocking the Goal Zero range will be made in April.

Wintec owner Rene Winter has expressed his enthusiasm in this new partnership, noting  “We believe Wintec is the perfect fit for Goal Zero, our years of experience in distributing solar and portable product in Africa gives the brand the perfect shot of becoming the SA consumers go-to power brand. We are confident that Goal Zero will be a success in our territory, our consumers are smart, nature loving and Goal Zero will fill the gaps in the current market perfectly.”
