Process technology company Despatch Industries has received multiple orders for its metallization firing furnaces from three new China-based customers. The furnaces in question have accounted for 8GW of production capacity worldwide, according to the company, and remain popular among Chinese solar manufacturing companies despite the economic downturn.
“Despatch continues to be the technology of choice in metallization firing furnaces,” commented Adam Ge, China Country Manager. “Despite the market slowdown, all three Chinese solar companies that have placed orders this year have purchased Despatch firing furnaces. This is a true testament to the value of our equipment and our local service and support network in China.”
