PV equipment specialist InnoLas Solutions has appointed GCD Sunlight as its exclusive sales agent in China.
The company has so far received orders equating to almost 1GW of production capacity for its laser systems used for PERC solar cell processing in 2015 with much of the demand coming from ASIA, notably China.
GCD Sunlight was founded by Gerhard Vilsmeier a long-standing former employee at RENA GmbH and had held previously various positions with equipment suppliers for the semiconductor industry.
“Gerhard Vilsmeier's sales and marketing experience with systems for the photovoltaic industry will enable him to provide valuable service to our customers in China,” said Markus Nicht, CEO InnoLas Solutions. “He will be particularly helpful to companies that are considering the advantages of advanced process steps such as PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) to increase solar cell efficiency.”
Gerhard Vilsmeier said, “I am very excited to join such a dynamic, growing company. The growth vision within InnoLas Solutions is completely in line with how I see the opportunity for me to contribute. My past experiences line up perfectly with this new role.”
Innolas expects the appointment of GCD Sunlight to strengthen its presence in China to capitalise on the current capacity expansion phase and technology buy cycle.
