SANYO Electric Co., Ltd. to Cut 140 Jobs and Close Solar Wafer Factory in Carson, California; Plans to Open 300 MW Plant for Wafers, Solar Cells and Modules in the Kulim Hi-Tech Park in Kedah in Malaysia
Feb 8 12
Sanyo Electric Co will cut about 140 jobs and close an aging solar wafer factory in Carson, California. The plant, which makes the equivalent of 30 megawatts of silicon ingots and wafers for solar cells a year, will stop production next month and close in October 2012. Equipment at the plant, opened in 2003, was getting old and the company found it difficult to expand the business there because of the small size of the site.
Sanyo Electric Co. prepares to start up operations at a plant in Malaysia. Panasonic announced in November it will invest ¥45 billion to build a 300 MW plant for wafers, solar cells and modules in the Kulim Hi-Tech Park in Kedah, Malaysia. Production will start in December 2012.
