GT Equipment Technologies goes Solar
Merrimack photovoltaics manufacturer GT Equipment Technologies has changed its name to GT Solar.
“This name change reflects the fact that most of the business we’re conducting around the globe is in the solar, or photovoltaic, energy industry, or, as a layman would say it, turning sunlight into electricity,” said Kedar Gupta, GT Solar CEO and a 2005 New Hampshire Business Review Business Excellence Award winner. “It’s one of the fastest-growing industries in the world, and GT Solar has become an industry leader. Our name now makes it clear that we are in the business of enabling technology, manufacturing and equipment solutions for the solar industry worldwide.”
The newly renamed GT Solar designs and manufactures multi-crystalline growth furnaces, reactors for poly-silicon production, and turnkey photovoltaic fabrication lines. The firm also conducts research and development on silicon feedstock production, solar cell processes and crystal growth modeling. — CINDY KIBBE
