The Heraeus Photovoltaics business unit, part of German technology firm Heraeus, has opened a new manufacturing facility in Taiwan demonstrating its commitment to the PV industry in the country and region.
“Taiwan is an important market for the future of the photovoltaic industry,” said Andy London, global manager of the company’s photovoltaics business unit. “We value the demand from this region and see it as vital to the future growth of our global PV business.”
The facility, which will allow the PV unit to provide a faster service and customized products for the Taiwanese market, features a large laboratory as well as manufacturing capabilities. The company has also hired and trained local personnel to operate the facility.
There will be an official grand opening during PV Taiwan 2012, an international PV exhibition held on October 3-5.
