UK-based Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology (OPIT) has promoted Dan Ayres to managing director, effective immediately. Last summer Ayres was appointed to the newly-created role of general manager having already worked at the company for over ten years. He has been based in operations, product management and project management.

Ayres replaces Andy Matthews who has held the role since 2007. Details of his exit have not been disclosed.

Dan Ayres will report to Jonathan Flint, CEO of OPIT, who comments, “Our business strategy demands an organisation that can meet the challenge of expanding markets, new products and growing numbers of customers and employees. Dan’s new appointment will ensure that Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology continues its current growth plans and I am confident that with Dan heading the strong executive team in place at the company, this will be achieved.”

Mark Vosloo, sales and customer support director has taken over responsibility for all customer facing functions including strategic marketing and holds the new title sales, customer support and marketing director.

    Looking back, 2014 was a year of convalescence for a PV industry still battered and bruised from a period of ferocious competition. End-market demand continued apace, with analysts towards the end of 2014 predicting the year would see between around 45 and 50GW of deployment. That has begun to feed through to the supplier end of the market, with all the main manufacturers announcing capacity expansions in 2015 and further ahead.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
