According to a press release, there is a future for the Berlin-based thin-film module producer after all. South American investors have agreed to take over the operations of the insolvent Inventux Technologies AG, including 100 of the employees. A further 70 workers can be employed in a transfer company until the end of the year.
Inventux is one of the many module producers that has had to go into insolvency or has exited the module production business this year. Despite this, the investors see a market for silicon-based thin-film modules. According to Inventux, the South Americans see opportunities for this technology in the sunny highlands of their continent. Silicon thin film has been particularly hit by the drop in price of the crystalline competition on the hotly contested PV markets.
The international investor search that was started in mid-May has thus come to a positive conclusion. The investors were already trade partners for the products from Berlin, Inventux revealed. The company will now be known as Inventux Solar Technologies GmbH. The directors will be the former members of the board of the public limited company Christian Plesser, Oliver Rothe and Roland Sillmann.
