Ulbrich Solar

Ulbrich Solar Technologies, a provider of copper-based PV solar components , announced the closure of their Oregon plant effective August 4, 2017.

The decision comes as the North American solar market continues to experience tremendous pricing pressure due to the saturation of Asian imports.

Ulbrich will continue to operate its solar businesses in Westminster, South Carolina and Müllendorf, Austria, offering highly engineered PV ribbon products including, Light Capturing Ribbon (LCR), Multi-Wire, thin film conductive tape and standard tabbing and buss wire, company officials said.

“Our goal remains unchanged: to produce technologically advanced solar products to exceptional quality standards, that will consistently exceed our customers’ expectations,” a statement from the company said.
