Trina Solar has extended its reach in the Asia region with the establishment of an Asia-Pacific operating headquarters in Singapore. This new base will oversee operations in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, India, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Korea, the Middle East and South Africa and will involve administration, sales, project development, R&D, logistics and purchasing operations functions.
The company already has offices in Changzhou, Shanghai and Beijing in China; Gyeonggi-do, South Korea; Tokyo, Japan; and Sydney, Australia. This new location has been selected as a strategic base from which Trina can serve its customer base in both existing and emerging markets.
“Singapore's excellent investment environment, combined with its skilled talent base and strong logistics infrastructure, makes it a strategically advantageous location for Trina Solar to establish our regional headquarters”, commented Jifan Gao, chairman and CEO of Trina Solar. “Our new Singapore headquarters complements our recent Asia Pacific expansion into Japan, Australia and Korea, while opening up emerging PV markets such as Thailand and India. We are confident that these headquarters will serve as an ideal gateway to markets throughout the region for Trina Solar.”
