The Mayor of San Francisco has welcomed Trina Solar Limited's choice of the City of San Francisco as the location for its North America base.
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom said that the decision by Trina Solar, an integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic products, to locate their North American base in San Francisco highlights the City’s strength as both a center for cleantech innovation and as a destination for leading Chinese companies looking for a world-class location for their US operations.
Jifan Gao, chairman and CEO of Trina Solar stated that this is an important step in the company's continuing commitment to deliver high quality Trina Solar PV modules to customers in the North American markets.
"As our geographic footprint continues to expand, we remain committed to a location with tremendous talent to provide the support and services that have allowed us to create strong customer relationships throughout the world." said Gao.
Yimei Wong, who manages Trina Solar's North America operations, commented that the company recognized the importance of solar as the need for efficient, clean energy in America continues to accelerate.
"As the first global solar company entering the city through Mayor Gavin Newsom’s 'ChinaSF' International Economic Development Program, we are honored to help build long-lasting business partnerships and be part of a premier gateway between China and North America." Wong added.
