York, UK – 23rd July 2013 – Phono Solar, a leading brand in the renewable energy sector, is pleased to announce that it has signed a distribution agreement with Supply Partners, a solar distributor in Australia. According to the agreement Supply Partners will sell 10MW of modules for Phono Solar per year in the next three years. This agreement undoubtedly helps Phono Solar further consolidate its position in the Australian market, following its recent agreement with Australian owned REDSET, and lays a solid foundation for its long-term development in the region.
Supply Partners Business Development Manager John Degotardi commented on the agreement saying “The team at Supply Partners is pleased to distribute on behalf of Phono Solar for the Australian market due to their long manufacturing business history and the fact they are already honouring warranties on a range of products in the Australian market”. Mr Degotardi went on to say “We see opportunities for cooperation on a range of energy efficiency products with Phono Solar and are impressed with Phono Solar’s relationships with other impressive manufacturers internationally like Power One Aurora”.
Phono Solar’s exploration of the Australian market has already successfully won over two sales partners in a short time frame. This latest agreement reflects the resilience and forward-thinking approach of Chinese modules manufacturers in dealing with adverse market conditions in Europe, following the preliminary anti-dumping and anti-subsidy ruling.
Commenting on the announcement, Geng Geng, vice president of Phono Solar said: “Phono Solar is delighted to cooperate with Supply Partners which has built up a strong reputation in Australia. With our combined regional awareness and product expertise we look forward to delivering cutting-edge, innovative solutions to the Australian solar energy market.”
