Kitron to supply a complete suite of EMS services to BRC Solar

The value of the agreement is expected to reach an annual level of approximately EUR 10 million within three years. Production will take place at Kitron’s facility in Lithuania.

We are proud that BRC Solar, a dynamic company in the growing solar industry, has trusted Kitron with the production of this exciting product, which targets a booming market and fits perfectly with Kitron’s focus on electrification as a megatrend and growth driver.

The performance of solar panels degrades when some modules connected in series are shaded or if modules have different alignments or inclinations. The Power Optimizer solves these problems and can be combined with a variety of panels and inverters already on the market.

Kitron will produce the full Power Optimizer product, from printed circuit board assembly to top-level assembly and testing. Because of the high quantities expected, production will be highly automated.

We were looking for a top-notch EMS partner in Eastern Europe and chose Kitron because of its technical competencies and experience, automatization solutions, high quality of services and capacity possibilities. We look forward to ramping up this partnership as the Power Optimizer hits the market.
