The location is large enough to accommodate two building expansions, says the company, which would bring total manufacturing capacity to 300 MW per year. It adds that it expects to increase its staff at the facility to 200 associates by the end of this year. In addition to the manufacturing plant, the facility also houses an 11,000-square-foot research center for the continued development of the company's "Amerisolar" brand solar modules as well as complete PV solar energy systems.
Worldwide's chief executive officer, Jimmy Wang, stated: "We are very excited about the opening of our Nantong facility, which will help us meet the growing demand for our high-quality solar modules. This new facility greatly increases our solar manufacturing capacity. We expect company ownership and lower operating costs at the new facility to improve margins for Worldwide."
