Austria-based Fronius International GmbH plans to establish a production site for solar inverters in Mississauga, Ontario.
The company expects that the factory will be brought on line at the end of the first quarter of 2011 and will create about 100 long-term jobs in the region. In 2011, the company will produce inverters with a total capacity of up to 50 MW, initially focusing on grid-connected Fronius IG Plus inverters, which are designed for residential systems and commercial systems up to 250 kW.
Fronius International GmbH has been represented in Mississauga by a sales and service subsidiary since 2007.
