Flextronics to Produce SunEdison Panels from Mexican Factory

SunEdison has selected Flextronics to manufacture its solar modules from the latter’s module manufacturing facility in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.

Flextronics will begin the full volume manufacturing in this quarter. SunEdison chose to manufacture at Flextronics in Ciudad Juarez given the strategic location bordering the United States, just south of El Paso, with access to all major U.S. rail lines and highways for fulfillment.

“We are proud to apply our innovative supply chain services to help SunEdison achieve their goal of providing clean and smart energy solutions”, said Scott Graybeal, Flextronics senior vice president of Energy. “This latest business award will increase our manufacturing capacity to more than 1.7 gigawatts, underscoring our leadership position as the largest supply chain solutions provider for solar modules.

“SunEdison has been a long time partner, doing business together since May 2011, and in January 2013 hit a milestone of the production of the one millionth Silvantis solar module at our Flextronics facility in Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Johor, Malaysia.  We are extremely proud of our strong partnership and are thrilled to support their manufacturing expansion into Mexico and look forward to sharing more successes together.”
