Solyndra forms international subsidiary in Switzerland

U.S. solar system manufacturer Solyndra has signalled its intent to increase its worldwide presence by founding Solyndra International. The subsidiary will be based in Baar, Switzerland, with Clemens Jargon taking on the role of chairman.

"With new sales offices in Italy, France and the Czech Republic and our representative in the Middle East we are establishing strong local capabilities to meet customer needs,” Jargon said. “We are evaluating additional offices in the UK and Benelux as well.

"Our new headquarters in Baar, Switzerland, and the establishment of Solyndra International AG, lays a foundation on which we can extend and optimise our presence to better serve customers throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East. We will maintain a strong presence in Germany while extending our reach into several key growth areas."

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt.

    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.
