Swiss inverter manufacturer SolarMax has increased the size of its UK operation by adding to its sales team.

Andrew Lycett joins the team as the UK distribution manager whilst Erica Westmore and Steve Bingham join as key account managers.

Having entered the UK market in 2011, SolarMax has targeted the UK is a key arena for business growth amid slowing rates of deployment in other European countries.

“The UK market is busy across all the different sectors, from residential through to utility scale,” said Martin Allman, regional manager north at SolarMax.

“In particular, we are seeing significant opportunities on commercial rooftop sites, with a strong pipeline of PV plants between 50kW and 500kW on factories and warehouses.”

“From homes to commercial rooftops to solar farms, the outlook for SolarMax in the UK in 2014 is extremely positive.”
