Solar equipment is marketed and supported by the company's EcoGlenn division.
"APS microinverters are very high quality, the best the industry has to offer," said Ignacio Diaz, Director of Sales and Marketing for Glenn International. "Our customers will benefit greatly as we add them to our product line."

APS microinverter technology is ideally suited for the Caribbean region, where grid standards can vary from one market to the next. APS's proven chip-based architecture can be configured for any grid standard anywhere in the world.

"Glenn International has a long-established presence in the Caribbean and is very knowledgeable of solar," said Thomas Nelson, APS Vice President of Sales. "We're very pleased to partner with them to bring our advanced microinverter products to more customers in what has become a dynamic region for solar."

The partnership is the latest between APS and a top-tier distributor to bring the company's advanced microinverter products to new international markets.

New office and warehouse facilities soon set the company on a trajectory of growth to become a leading player in the electrical construction products industry. Carlos Diaz later acquired all shares from Raul Rodriguez, and now runs Glenn International with sons Ignacio and Ricardo, and a staff of dedicated employees.

ABOUT APS: APS was founded in Silicon Valley in 2009, and is now a global leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of microinverters based on their own leading-edge solar technology. APS's U.S. operations are based near Seattle.
