In SMA’s growth plans, Mexico plays an important role. Due to this fact, SMA Solar Technology plans to open a new subsidiary in Mexico by the end of 2017. The facility will support sales and service efforts in the country.

SMA intends to establish a local presence that will better serve the customers in Mexico, providing greater access to SMA expertise and resources. “The domestic Mexican market is just beginning to realize its potential,” said John Susa, executive vice president of sales for the Americas and Asia Pacific regions. “With a local office operating, SMA can provide better sales and service support to accounts in the region. The team in Mexico will help drive business across all segments including residential, commercial and utility.”

In the past few years, the Americas region has become increasingly important for the inverter specialist. SMA created an Authorized Distributor network to support channel customers in Mexico last year. Mexico’s largest solar plant, Aura Solar I, was using SMA inverters for a portion of the project. SMA also initiated a reinvestment in the U.S. market with a significant expansion across all business areas earlier in the year. As the company emphasizes, global market diversification has been a hallmark of the business strategy. SMA has strengthened its position with local centers in all key solar regions around the world.
