Meyer Burger signs distribution partnership with Solarmarkt for its high-performance solar modules in Switzerland

  • 2020 is the year of transformation from a supplier of production equipment to a leading technology manufacturer of solar cells and solar modules
  • Largest Swiss distributor of solar products adds Meyer Burger to its portfolio
  • Market launch planned for 27 April, delivery starting in July
  • Meyer Burger's solar modules can be ordered from Solarmarkt and other distribution partners beginning with the market launch


For the distribution of its new high-performance solar modules in Switzerland, Meyer Burger will partner with Solarmarkt GmbH. The largest distributor of solar products in Switzerland is the first official distribution partner announced by the company.


Meyer Burger plans to launch the new modules in the market on 27 April. From this date, installers in Switzerland will be able to order Meyer Burger's modules from Solarmarkt and offer them to their customers. Meyer Burger will announce further distribution partners for the European target markets and the USA at the market launch. Meyer Burger plans to start shipping the first significant volumes from the factory in Freiberg (Saxony, Germany) in July.


“Solarmarkt is a strategically important and strong partner for Meyer Burger in the Swiss solar market,” said Moritz Borgmann, Managing Director of Meyer Burger (Industries) GmbH and responsible for sales and marketing. “We see a very positive market development in Switzerland and believe that we will gain significant market shares with our product. In our discussions with Solarmarkt starting with our strategy change last year, we have seen the same confidence from the beginning – we look forward to a successful cooperation in the coming years.”


“The solar modules by the new premium brand Meyer Burger fill an obvious gap in the Swiss market and have great potential,” said Rafael Stadelmann, Managing Director of Solarmarkt. “The products, which stand for 'high performance engineered in Switzerland,' are a perfect fit for us.”


Meyer Burger produces solar cells and modules and the necessary equipment in its own factories in Germany, using a combination of heterojunction and SmartWire technology. Over the past twelve years, the company has brought this from the laboratory to mass production maturity. The next-generation solar modules have an approximately 20 percent higher energy yield on the same surface area than current standard modules, meet the highest aesthetic standards and are manufactured under strict sustainability standards.
