PV equipment suppliers join forces


30 PV equipment and materials suppliers have come together to form the
International Photovoltaic Equipment Association (IPVEA) to collaborate
on strategic partnerships, develop business opportunities and to
provide a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas.

The companies, which hail from Europe, the U.S. and Asia, will work together in supporting each other’s events, offering discounts for booth branding and advertising and in reducing the number of key trade shows among the IPVEA’s members.

The association has named Bryan Ekus as Managing Director, who will work with the following board members:

President: Hans-Juergen Stangl (Stangl Semiconductor)
Vice President: Sven Jarby (Oerlikon)
Vice President: Albert Vontz (Kuka Systems)
Secretary: Andreas Schöni (3S Swiss Solar Systems)
Treasurer: Steffen Guenther (Reis Robotics)
Board Member: Stefan Schiller (Schiller Automation)
Board Member: Manfred Schroeder (Ebara Precision Machinery)

The IPVEA website (www.ipvea.com) is currently under development.
