Privately held materials supply specialist Targray Technology International said it has seen a 128% increase in sales volume from its solar grade silicon, ingot, and off spec or scrap materials business during 2009. Although a difficult year for the industry, the company cited its global infrastructure and specialist staff for the business increase in 2009. Targray has been involved in the distribution of solar-grade silicon to wafer, cell and module manufacturers in the PV industry, only since 2006.
“We expect 2010 to be an even stronger year,” noted Howard Alter, director of Targray’s silicon division. “As solar markets rebound worldwide, Targray’s silicon transaction volume stands to expand significantly.”
Targray also supplies major consumables, including metallization pastes, POCl3, silicone sealing, potting and adhesives, and interconnect wire, amongst others.
