Canadian Solar Inc., headquartered in Markham, Ontario, has opened a new office in Phoenix, Ariz., that will serve as headquarters for the company's U.S. operations and sales. Jeff Calabro, director of U.S. sales, will be managing the company's American expansion efforts.
‘The U.S. is an important strategic market with the potential to become one of the world's largest solar energy consumer markets,’ says Shawn Qu, chairman and chief executive officer for Canadian Solar. ‘Having a physical presence on the ground underscores our commitment and anticipated expansion. We plan to aggressively leverage our global presence and customer relationships to build significant market share in the U.S. as we have successfully done in other new markets.’
