tenKsolar , a Minneapolis based manufacturer of high energy density PV solar energy systems, announced today the expansion of their production lines with new manufacturing facilities in Thailand. This capacity will be in addition to tenK’s existing manufacturing facilities, operating in Shanghai and Minneapolis, MN.
The new manufacturing lines will allow tenKsolar to meet the rising demand for their RAIS PV Systems. “Over the last year, customer demand has forced us to drastically increase our production operations twice, and 2015 shows no sign of slowing down,” Joel Cannon, CEO of tenKsolar, explains. “We’re pleased to announce an expansion to our production capabilities, adding four assembly lines to our trusted contract manufacturing partner in Thailand. This expansion allows us to diversify our supply chain and provide our customers certainty of timely supply for volume deliveries.”
Added Cannon, “This move also positions tenK as a go-to supplier for customers concerned about the impacts of recent US trade actions against China and Taiwan. tenK always thinks ahead in order to protect ourselves and our customers from major shifts in market dynamics such as these.”
tenKsolar’s operations in Thailand will include module assembly operations and lamination. Volume shipments from the Thailand facilities will begin in February 2015.
