Trina Solar Limited (CHANGZHOU, China), a leading integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic products from the production of ingots, wafers and cells to the assembly of PV modules, today announced the planned establishment of a warehouse operation in The Port of Oakland, California.
The warehouse is strategically located in California, which in 2008 had a total of 530MW of the estimated 800MW of grid tied PV capacity(1) in the United States. With planned service to begin in June of 2009, the warehouse is expected to strengthen Trina Solar's distribution network in North America by allowing us to respond more swiftly to customer delivery requests.
"We are pleased to announce the establishment of our first warehouse in North America, which will help to accommodate the growing demand for our products, pursue new relationships and better serve our customers," said Arturo Herrero, Trina Solar's Vice President of Sales & Marketing. "In addition, we view the outlook for PV installations in the United States as positive given the national promotion of a green economy to secure energy independence and create green jobs."
