Press release from: 3S Industries AG

Lyss, 4th May 2009. The 3S Industries Group, world leader in production equipment for the manufacture of solar modules, continues to expand on an international scale and is establishing subsidiaries in Hong Kong and Singapore, as well as an office in Kunshan (China). The solar group’s existing and new customers will benefit immediately from shorter channels and direct customer care locally. The three companies in the solar concern will also present themselves jointly for the first time at the Third International SNEC Photovoltaic Power Expo, currently the industry’s most important trade fair in China.

In founding the new subsidiaries in Asia the 3S solar concern is continuing its international growth strategy. With a subsidiary already in the USA, the company will now have locations in Hong Kong, China and Singapore, enabling it to provide customer-oriented sales and services in the Asian growth markets. The 3S Group provides customers in Asia with automatic string soldering machines, laminating lines, testers and turnkey solar module production lines.

The 3S Group’s increased activities in Asia are a step forward in its steady development on the international market stage. “Up until now we’ve primarily delivered to the very high demand in Europe because of a capacity bottleneck. Now we are concentrating more on the American and Asian markets, where large growth is predicted,” says Patrick Hofer-Noser, CEO of 3S Industries AG.

The central hub of activities in Asia is the new subsidiary in Hong Kong, led by Michael Raber. Thanks to twelve years spent in Asia, Raber has a good knowledge of the market, experience in the field of renewable energies and manufacturing systems engineering as well as important local business connections. 3S’s new Asian headquarters are located in a science park which is currently developing into an important centre for the solar industry in China.

The solar group’s three companies, Somont, 3S Swiss Solar Systems and Pasan, will be exhibiting at a joint booth at the Third International SNEC Photovoltaic Power Expo in Shanghai from 6th to 8th May. Visitors to the trade fair can learn about the latest developments in stringing, laminating and testing and find out about the turnkey production lines provided by 3S. Visitors will find 3S Industries at stand T636C in hall E6.
