This makes Schletter Group one of the largest manufacturers of assembly technology for the solar industry worldwide. “Our product offensive of the last few years is paying off”, comments Florian Roos, CEO of the Schletter Group. Schletter had renewed its product portfolio in recent years and optimised the use of materials and assembly time in its systems.
More than 200 new people hired
An important milestone was the development of the Schletter Tracking Systems 1V and 2V, which are in high demand among investors and project developers. “The positive development also includes the fact that we hired more than 200 new colleagues worldwide last year.”
In total, more than 6.5 gigawatts of photovoltaic output were installed on Schletter systems worldwide in 2022. In the Dominican Republic, for example, Schletter most recently supplied a solar park (96 megawatts) with the Tracking System 2V.
This order is the largest project with a tracking system so far. In addition, one of the country’s largest solar power plants with 136 megawatts is being built in South Korea near the city of Seosan on the Schletter FS Duo system.
65 million euros for further growth
Schletter wants to continue its growth course and invests in the development of new markets. To this end, the company had placed via a bond in October 2022 and raised 65 million euros. “For us, it is important that we also expand our structures and resources with our growth in turnover,” explains Roos.
