Since Suntech established its presence in France in 2008, the French solar market has become one of the company's top three markets in Europe.
"We are going the distance to meet the needs of our local partners, including distributors and installers, by providing them with responsive and top-quality service," said Jean-Yves Lindheimer, recently appointed head of Suntech France, after welcoming key industry partners and public representatives to the new office. "The Grenoble area provides an ideal environment for our office in France, as this community shares Suntech's commitment to driving technology innovation and sustainable development."
The event was also attended by Frank Weber, Marketing Director for Suntech Europe, who stressed the strategic importance of this new development: "The French solar market is booming; and, in our view, sustainable, long-term growth will require steady commitment and support from major industry players."
The office will also be home to a technical customer support team.
