Outsourcing Asian style
Asian PV module maker Motech has decided that it needs to shift some of its operation where it can reduce costs.
Obviously the logical place is the United States where we guess there is a large supply of cheap labour and a ready supply of people wanting to buy. According to DigiTimes, Motech is likely to establish an assembly factory in the US to tap the local market.
The factory may be located near the facilities of Pennsylvania-based polycrystalline silicon material producer AE Polysilicon, in which Motech has a 25.38 per cent stake.
Motech has appointed Derick Botha, former senior executive at GE Solar and AstroPower, as VP of Business Operations to oversee the outsourcing operation.
