This joint venture will be a useful opportunity to offer our PV products and solutions in the two markets while working with Z-One Holding who has an extensive distribution network and profound photovoltaic expertise," said Mr. Tingxiu Lu, chief executive officer of CSUN. "Our track records of working with a variety of well-known enterprises located in both upstream and downstream of the PV industry has positioned us well as Z-One Holding's partner and we look forward to capturing the lucrative opportunities together."
