Aix-en-Provence, France / Thalheim, Germany - 21 March 2014 - Hanwha Q CELLS has opened a new office in France based in Aix-en-Provence near Marseille. The new office will be run by Philippe Pflieger, Head of Sales France. In March 2014 Hanwha Q CELLS again received the French certification agency Certisolis “Made in EU” certificate for manufacturing solar cells and solar modules comprised entirely of European components.
“France is one of our European home markets. We are actively pursuing solar opportunities to gain further market share”, said Justin Lee, CCO at Hanwha Q CELLS. “According to our international market offensive in 2014, we are well positioned to develop solar power in France.”
“Thanks to its high irradiation PV makes a lot of sense in France’s sunny regions. We build on our well established business with developers and wholesalers,” added Philippe Pflieger. “With a strengthened team and our new office we can now offer an on-site service throughout the entire country. In the next step, we will enter into long-term partnerships with installers in the whole country.”
