Huawei Solar has announced an expansion of its European Supply Center with a new inverter production facility in Eindhoven. The center is meant to increase the flexibility and shorten delivery times of the customised inverter production. DHL will cooperate with Huawei to provide this production and delivery service.

All of Huawei’s European string inverters are supplied through this Supply Center situated in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The 10,000m² warehouse has a production capacity of over 100,000 units per month, 7,000 of which are inverters. In addition to pick and pack services, Huawei and DHL handle software uploads and cable cutting activities that enable a more tailored and responsive service to Huawei’s customers across Europe.

Guoguang Chen, General Manager for Huawei Solar Europe, said: “Today marks a significant milestone in the development of Huawei Solar’s European business with enhancements to our supply chain operation and, most notably, the integration of our new inverter production facility. We pride ourselves in being a trusted and reliable partner to our customers and this upgrade of our capabilities means we can serve our European partners better still.”

The facility in Eindhoven was opened in May 2015 following the successful cooperation between Huawei and DHL at the company’s hub in Hungary. Since its opening, the Eindhoven facility has almost doubled its volume and serves more than forty countries in Europe, Central Asia and Russia.
