PV manufacturer Canadian Solar is to expand its global reach by opening a sales and business development office in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The company said it wanted to gain a stronger foothold in Latin America, particularly Brazil, which is widely regarded as an up-and-coming solar market.
The company will look to bring its core commercial, residential and off-grid products into the South American market, and extend its utility-scale project development arm.
“South America has long been a promising market for solar, and having a strong presence in Brazil is a strategic move for Canadian Solar,” said the company's chairman and chief executive Sawn Qu.
“Canadian Solar has a proven track record of success around the globe and we look forward to replicating this momentum in the South American market.”
The company has appointed Claudio Loureiro as its new general manager for South America.
