Solar power products and services provider SPG Solar has announced it will be relocating its corporate headquarters to Petaluma, California, effective January 1, 2013.
The new 7,747 square metres complex will include a research and development (R&D) facility comprising of two testing labs, one for racking and the other for electrical and communications. In addition, the company states that its headquarters will include reliability facilities, which will incorporate a prototype facility and a destructive-test facility, as well as a customer centre that will house an interactive and operational product showcase.
“This is a strategic business move for us, so we looked extensively for just the right location,” said Doug May, CEO of SPG Solar. “Petaluma gives us the best possible combination of the right space, a strong business community, and a growing renewable energy sector.”
At the end of October, SPG Solar added two new members to its executive management. John Tomaszewski and Soren Jensen were named senior VP of operations, customer service and warranty and director of engineering, respectively.
SPG Solar worked with PB&J Acquisitions to convert an existing structure into its new office and R&D complex.
