Gov. Sonny Perdue (center) was on hand to announce that the new headquarters for Mage Solar will be located in Dublin, GA, where the company will invest $30 million in the PV module production facility and create 350 jobs over the next five years. The North American site will focus primarily on the domestic market, but the company admits to looking at expanding internationally in the long run.
“We are certain that we have found the perfect home for our company based on the excellent infrastructure, impressive workforce known for its productivity, integrity and skill, as well as a keenly business oriented leadership, who during the whole process also never lost focus of what is best for the future of Georgia, Laurens County and the City of Dublin,” said Norbert Philipp, CEO of Mage.
The new corporate campus will house Mage’s headquarters, a manufacturing facility, and a solar academy, while managing all operational processes necessary to serve the U.S. solar market. During the campus’s first phase, production capacity will reach 40MW, with the company expecting to reach final capacity of 800MW during the last expansion. Mage Powertec Plus modules are scheduled to begin production by the end of this year.
