Heavyweight Chinese inverter manufacturer Huawei Solar announced an expansion of its European Supply Center, with a new inverter production facility in Eindhoven, Netherlands, which the company hopes will help it service its European customers with better efficiency and flexibility.
As Chinese PV companies continue to consolidate their position as the global force in solar manufacturing, one of the country’s leading string inverter manufacturers has announced an expansion of its European production facility. Huawei uses its European Supply Center in Eindhoven, Netherlands, to service forty countries in the European, Central Asian and Russian market, and believes this expansion will be able to add further value to its business in those regions.
