SolTech Energy receives an order for 5.7 MSEK from Rexel
Last Thursday, SolTech Energy presented a cooperation agreement with Rexel Sverige AB covering the distribution of SolTech ShingEl in Sweden. Now, Rexel has submitted its first order for ShingEl worth 5,721,000 SEK (588,300 EUR)
The cooperation agreement is exclusive with respect to electrical wholesalers and the goal is to successively expand into Rexel’s other 18 solar-energy engaged countries. Rexel will be taking Soltech products into its own warehouses on a regular basis, in order to thereafter directly distribute them to its customers, as well as to its 63 Storel and Selga stores. Initially, the partnership will be focused on SolTech ShingEl, a completely building-integrated solar cell that functions as a roof tile, perfectly suited to laying seamlessly alongside Benders’ Carisma roof tile.
Frederic Telander, CEO SolTech Energy, comments:
”We believed we would see big volume orders via Rexel. That we have now received – directly after we drew up this agreement – a big order for their own stock keeping purposes is proof that Rexel is serious about our cooperation agreement and serious about lying in the absolute forefront of the solar energy branch: A very exciting phase of SolTech’s journey has begun.”
