Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited, leading vertically integrated photovoltaic product manufacturer, has announced the opening of coastal U.S. headquarters in New York City and San Francisco.
Yingli Green Energy expects that these two regional headquarters will enhance support for the company’s growing North American customer base and facilitate the formation of new partnerships across the solar value chain in this region.
“Given the vast potential and rapid growth of the U.S. solar market, it is imperative for us to have a strong presence on both coasts of the country,” commented Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli Green Energy.
In order to strengthen Yingli’s business in North America, the company has set up an entirely owned subsidiary, Yingli Green Energy Americas, Inc. (Yingli Americas).
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom said, “Chinese firms, like Yingli Green Energy, bring the rising strength of Chinese entrepreneurship, their rapidly growing industry expertise, and the ability to take these innovations to mass scale.”
The opening of the new offices is Yingli Green Energy’s latest step toward expanding its operations in North America and will help support and promote the company’s expanded U.S. product offerings that now include five families of high quality UL certified PV modules ranging in size from 175W to 280W.
