Spire Solar builds momentum
Only 2 months after its spin out, Spire Solar is delighted to announce that first purchase orders have been received and sun simulators are shipping to customers in the US, China and India. The new company, specialized in PV module testing, was formed following an acquisition from Spire Corporation and is part of the Eternal Sun Group.
“We are very proud to see the continued confidence customers have in the new company. Proven technology, strong business relations and the ability to quickly respond to customer needs enabled us to hit the ground running” says Eternal Sun Group CEO Chokri Mousaoui. “The response of existing customers to the spin out has given us the support we needed to get things moving so fast. We could not have done this without the enormous efforts of the team and supportive attitude of our key suppliers”.
Since the spin out, Spire Solar has already moved production and offices to new facilities in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts from where it will roll out a new strategy focused on leading and reliable technology and excellent customer service.
