Suniva ranked as Georgia’s fastest-growing small mid-market company


To accommodate rapidly growing demand for its products, Suniva recently announced that the company has expanded its manufacturing capacity by adding a third cell line at its metro-Atlanta plant. The new manufacturing line will enable the company to hire additional employees in Georgia.

In the past year, Suniva has created more than 150 new jobs and plans to hire 500 additional staff at a new manufacturing plant in Michigan – pending a DOE loan guarantee. Suniva employs a diverse workforce—approximately 30 percent of employees are military veterans and many others formerly worked at now shuttered automotive plants.

"We’re honored to be recognized by Georgia Trend Magazine as the fastest growing mid-market company in Georgia,” said John Baumstark, chairman and chief executive officer of Suniva. “Suniva is committed to expanding our workforce and helping Georgia become a leader in America’s new clean energy economy.”

This award continues the company’s momentum of recent achievements. In the first half of 2010, the company was named the “Renewable Energy Exporter of the Year” by the Export-Import Bank of the United States, and was ranked as The Wall Street Journal’s 2nd most promising Venture-Backed Clean Technology Company based on company management and capital strength.

Suniva was also named by the Wall Street Journal as the 15th most promising Venture-Backed Company across all industries.
