Rexel Holdings USA Corp., through its subsidiaries Rexel, Inc. (Rexel) and General Supply & Services, Inc. d/b/a Gexpro, a leader in the distribution of electrical supplies and services, and Hanwha Q CELLS, the largest European PV provider, announced that Rexel and Gexpro will begin carrying Q CELLS solar modules effective immediately.
“We are thrilled to welcome the addition of Q CELLS state-of-the-art modules into our solar panel distribution portfolio,” said John P. Gerber, Vice President, Rexel Inc. “Through this collaboration, we are looking forward to supplying our growing US customer base with high-quality, German-engineered solar panels from such a reputable and sustainable brand. Based on Hanwha Q CELLS guaranteed performance and compliance with US trade regulation, we are excited at the opportunities Hanwha Q CELLS opens to a broader US market.”
Under the terms of the agreement, Hanwha Q CELLS will supply its solar modules, which are developed at its headquarters in Bitterfeld-Wolfen, Germany, to Rexel and Gexpro for resale to their nationwide networks of installers and distributors. Q CELLS modules feature durability and performance, even under low-light conditions or in high temperatures, which earned the Q.PRO-G2 the title of best polycrystalline module in the 2013 PHOTON yield test. The companies will also collaborate to support Rexel’s and Gexpro’s installer networks with certified technical product training and sales and marketing support.
“This exciting collaboration is a stepping stone in expanding our presence in the US solar PV market, in which we see great potential,” said Justin Lee, CCO of Hanwha Q CELLS. “With guaranteed high-yield modules and a recently expanded production capacity, we believe we are ideally suited to supply the US market.”
