Schletter Group has relocated its Shanghai site to a new plant, expanding its production capacities in China.
Florian Roos, CEO of the Schletter Group.
“At our new location, which is tailored to our requirements, we now have the capacities we need for our growing business. And the new plant also offers us room for potential future expansion.”
In the new plant, approximately 18,000 square meters, about 400 employees will manufacture solar-mounting systems.
“Due to the high capacity use, we have reached natural limits at the old site in the last few years. The new site will enable us to process orders faster.”
Since the relocation, production at the new site has already been running at full speed. In the first quarter of 2020, the Schletter Group has manufactured and delivered mounting systems with a volume of 300 MW in China, the bulk of which was already produced at the new site.
“To accomplish the relocation of a complete production facility exactly on schedule is already a great achievement under normal conditions. The fact that our colleagues managed to do this in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic deserves the greatest recognition.”
