EU PVSEC: Sputnik Engineering announces entry into UK market


Sputnik Engineering has said that beginning in the fourth quarter of 2010, it will be supplying the UK with its Swiss solar inverters. This news comes after recent investor concern that the UK does not have access to sufficient supplies of high-quality inverters and modules, reports PV-Tech’s UK-based sister site.

“The UK has ambitious goals. Our portfolio matches the individual market segments perfectly and we are looking forward to being a major player in this dynamic business,” said Daniel Freudiger, general manager of Sputnik Engineering International and head of sales and marketing at the company’s Swiss headquarters in Biel.
