KLNE and Solar Service Germany Gmbh from Werdau have signed a strategic cooperation agreement that will see Solar Service distribute, sell and service the range of KLNE inverters throughout Germany.
KLNE staff had been in Germany for the past few months, establishing a network of contacts throughout the country. During a visit with Solar Service, they expressed a strong interest in a partnership and after negotiations, an agreement was signed.
KLNE now has warehousing facilities in Germany and the ability to supply and service quickly from a local source.
"Germany has been the leading European market in PV for years and continues to be a leader both in installations and in policy making," said Paul Nicholson, KLNE's Marketing Director. "We know that with Solar Service we have strong partners who will increase awareness of our brand in the German market. Although we see a little cooling in the market, it is still strong and we expect good sales volume."
