Technical College System of Georgia and the Georgia Department of Economic Development has selected Suniva as Manufacturer of the Year for 2016 in the medium size business category.
The Manufacturer of the Year award had nearly 100 applicants in the medium size business sector, making it one of the most competitive awards in Georgia. The companies were nominated by business and civic leaders and chosen for their excellence and contributions to the state’s economy and their respective local communities.
“We are tremendously honored to receive this award,” said Matt Card, executive vice president of Commercial Operations at Suniva. “In a marketplace that is heavily served by off-shore commodity manufacturing, it’s important that the domestic construction industry have a strong manufacturing leader of high-quality, innovative products here at home. Suniva is proud of its Georgia roots, and we are thrilled that our position of leadership here in the United States results not only in technological innovation for our industry – but is allowing us to give back to our state through significant job creation.”
The company is currently expanding its state-of-the art manufacturing facility at its headquarters, bringing the Norcross site to 400MW of cell capacity. With over 350 employees, and its award winning cell technology, Suniva is known world-wide for its high-powered solar products.
