Destined for the US market, long-term manufacturing partner of SunEdison, Flextronics has started producing solar modules at its facility in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.

Flextronics said that SunEdison selected its Ciudad Juarez facility as it was close to the city of El Paso, and therefore direct access to the US market.

SunEdison would avoid anti-dumping duties as well as its plans to increase its utility-scale, commercial and residential markets in the US in 2015. 

Scott Graybeal, Flextronics senior vice president of Energy said, “This latest business award will increase our manufacturing capacity to more than 1.7 gigawatts, underscoring our leadership position as the largest supply chain solutions provider for solar modules. SunEdison has been a long time partner, doing business together since May 2011, and in January 2013 hit a milestone of the production of the one million Silvantis solar module at our Flextronics facility in Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP), Johor, Malaysia.

Tony Etnyre, GM and vice president of Solar Module Operations at SunEdison added, “In Ciudad Juarez, Flextronics has successfully deployed a full turnkey PV module manufacturing solution, from line design to volume production, matching our existing manufacturing capability.  He added, “Flextronics' global footprint positions us to grow local capacity in high demand regions.”

Flextronics started production at the plant in Mexico in the first quarter of 2015.
