Meyer Burger Technology Ltd. says that it is merging its individual production locations as a part of its concentration efforts.
The company intends to integrate its location in Lyss, Switzerland, into its solar technology center in Thun, Switzerland, and to merge subsidiaries Meyer Burger Ltd. and 3S Swiss Solar Systems Ltd.
At the new Thun headquarters, a solar technology center will be created to focus on wafering and modules. The second technology center, located in Hohenstein-Ernstthal, will focus on the development of cell technologies.
Even after the intended merger, the 3S Modultec and 3S Photovoltaics technology brands will remain within the Meyer Burger Group's umbrella and will be further developed, the company notes. The integration should be completed by the end of March 2013.
The company's other main production locations are in Hohenstein-Ernstthal, Germany; Zulpich, Germany; and Colorado Springs, Colo.
