Canadian Solar has officially opened Rome-based Italian sales office. The new base will be headed up by Marco Di Pietro, the country manager for Italy, who said, “Italy is one of the world’s top alternative energy markets, with impressive demand growth and installations of photovoltaic systems. Canadian Solar has effectively grown its business in Italy with sales, marketing, support and executive focus led from our international offices.”
“Given our significant existing customer base, demand and projected growth, it made strategic sense to expand on a local basis with our new office in Rome. We are very excited about this market,” continued Di Pietro.
Dr. Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar said, “Italy is currently ranked as the world’s third largest PV market. Opening this office underscores our commitment to providing the best support to customers and to developing new business opportunities. Canadian Solar’s high quality modules have been very well received in Italy since 2008. We fully expect to build on our momentum in the important Italian market as we move forward with a dedicated local sales platform.”
