Following a year of respectable growth for Targray Technology International’s solar silicon division, the company has expanded its silicon division by venturing into new markets, including Japan. To help foster this expansion, Targray has added new personnel including Soichiro Yonetsu as the regional manager for its new Fukuoka, Japan location. Additionally, Steve Ghaleb and Jessica Lifshitz join the company at its Montreal, Canada headquarters as global sales manager and junior product manager, respectively.
“Extending our market presence and building up our internal silicon team is vital to ensuring our continued support of an expanding global customer base and increasing demand for Silicon materials,” said Howard Alter, director of the silicon division at Targray. “We’re therefore delighted by the addition of Yonetsu-san in Japan, a market where it’s imperative to have local presence and support in order to drive expansion. On the home front, Steve’s extensive and highly relevant distribution experience will play a key role in helping us increase our sales management capacity and execute our strategic plan.”
Ghaleb and Yonetsu bring a combined 25 years of experience in the electronic components distribution sphere and the silicon recycling and trading field. Ghaleb was most recently a branch manager for Eastern Canada at Electro Sonic while Yonetsu-san served as president of Silfine Japan.
