A Chinese company that makes solar panels for the utility, residential and commercial markets will open its second North American office in Cheshire.
It was not immediately clear Friday where in town Solarfun Power Holdings
plans to open its office, when that opening might occur or how many employees would staff the facility. The company, which is headquartered in Shanghai, announced its plans in a press release put out on Friday.
Jerry Sitko, the town's economic development coordinator (shown above), was not available for comment, on the company's plans. And members of the community's Economic Development Commission said they had not been briefed on the company's plans, although an agenda item on Solarfun Power is on the agenda for the group's next meeting on Tuesday.
"Supporting the growing North American market remains one of our top priorities," said Bruce Ludemann, Vice President and General Manager of Solarfun North America. "As the demands of the utility, commercial and residential markets continue to expand, we're working to provide customers additional access to Solarfun's high-quality and reliable products and project development support."
