Lasting Success of Leading Metals Manufacturer Creates Strong Foundation for Solar Module Manufacturer Subsidiary
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On October 27, Boviet Solar USA will celebrate the 30th anniversary of its parent company, Powerway Group Co., Ltd. The success and diversity of the Powerway Group has provided a solid financial foundation and extensive research and manufacturing capacity for its subsidiary businesses, including Boviet Solar USA.
Founded in 1987, Powerway Group is one of the world's largest suppliers of non-ferrous metal alloys and specialty materials and parts. The company generates in excess of $1.5 billion (U.S.) in annual revenues. The company also has world-class research and development facilities and manufacturing operations, including Boviet Solar Technology Co., Ltd., which maintains a 70,000-square-meter R&D and manufacturing facility in Bac Giang, Vietnam.
