Aide Solar Factory Expansion in China

TEMPE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In an ambitious move aimed at increasing its global customer base, Aide Solar (http://www.aidesolar.com/) today announced it has broken ground on the planned Phase 2 expansion of its existing 1 million sq. ft. poly and mono crystalline solar cell and PV module production factory in Xuzhou, China. The expansion calls for the addition of a new 947,225 square foot production facility that will be capable of housing 2GW of module capacity under a single roof when it begins production in the fourth quarter of 2011.

“Having 2GW of solar module capacity consolidated into a single facility on our campus will give Aide Solar a distinct competitive advantage in the area of cost and manufacturing efficiency and customer responsiveness.”

After completion of Phase 2 construction, Aide Solar’s existing facility in Xuzhou will be modified to house solar cell production lines only, allowing for future expansion of cell production. Both the existing facility and the newly planned adjacent solar module facility are located on a 600 acre campus owned by Aide Solar’s parent company, The PANJIT Group.

“We remain dedicated to delivering cost-effective and reliable solar products in a timely manner,” said Jason Fang, Chairman, Aide Solar. “Having 2GW of solar module capacity consolidated into a single facility on our campus will give Aide Solar a distinct competitive advantage in the area of cost and manufacturing efficiency and customer responsiveness.”
