SCHOTT Solar says it is expanding its photovoltaic module production line at its Albuquerque facility. PV production will double from two shifts to four shifts on a rotating schedule, effectively creating a 24 hour-a-day, seven-days-a-week production capacity at the company's flagship facility.
In order to meet this increased production schedule, SCHOTT Solar says it has been hiring up to 10 new employees per week since Nov. 1. The majority of the new positions have been PV production technicians. In addition, new materials handlers and tech services/facilities technicians positions have also been filled.
These 60 new employees will bring the PV production lines to a full capacity of 160 employees by the end of this month.
