SolarBridge Technologies selects Celestica to manufacture its PV Microinverter.
Celestica's worldwide presence and legacy of electronics manufacturing capabilities made the company our first choice for manufacturer," said Ron Van Dell, president and CEO, SolarBridge. "Celestica has supported us in validating our game-changing microinverter design. We look forward to moving into volume manufacturing with Celestica to produce highly efficient and reliable microinverters - the building blocks of a whole new class of integrated AC solar modules." SolarBridge and Celestica have been working together for more than a year, having completed design for manufacture (DFM), design for test (DFT) and qualification builds at Celestica's facility in Toronto, Canada.
