Donauer Solartechnik opens sales office in Austria
Since October 2011, the Austrian customers of Donauer Solartechnik have had a direct partner on location: Andreas Wimplinger heads the new sales office in the Upper-Austrian district of Waldzell.
Donauer Solartechnik has been active in the Alpine republic for more than five years. Formerly, however, the wholesaler took care of the customers there from its headquarters in Bavaria, Germany. ?Thanks to the new sales office, we are now closer to our customers and can cater to their wishes more quickly and flexibly?, explains Wimplinger.
The graduate master electrician brings along years of experience planning and installing photovoltaic plants in Austria. ?Since our solar modules and mounts are made to withstand high snow loads, we offer exactly the right products for this market.?
Positive Growth Forecasts
The current forecasts for the Austrian photovoltaic market are favourable: experts from the EPIA (European Photovoltaic Industry Association) anticipate energy production there from photovoltaic plants of 1200 megawatts by 2020. Currently this figure is approximately 150 megawatts.
?For the business year 2012, we expect the current market volume for photovoltaics to nearly double?, explains Walter Manns, managing director of Donauer Solartechnik in Gilching. ?In Austria, we want to grow faster than the market.?
Now, thanks to its new sales office in Austria, Donauer is represented in seven European countries, including Germany, Portugal, Italy, France, Belgium and Great Britain.
