As part of this agreement, SIC USA LLC will continue to conduct new inverter sales and provide training related to Satcon inverters. In addition, SIC USA LLC has appointed Trylon Solarshield as the exclusive authorized provider for Field Services for repairs and maintenance of the Satcon inverters. Trylon Solarshield will also serve as the exclusive distribution channel for all Satcon Spare Parts sales in North America. “The creation of SIC USA LLC extends our reach and creates a world class sales and technical support team in North America,” said Andy Chen, President of Skwentex International Corporation. “Our aim is to provide the highest level of service and value to our customers to ensure that their investments continue to perform at the highest levels through their entire lifespan. To meet that objective, we have partnered with Trylon. With the Solarshield Service Network, Trylon has developed an unparalleled team of Satcon specific expertise which made them the obvious field service and spares distribution partner for us as we looked to strengthen our North America operations network and best serve our customers.” As part of the agreement, Tryon’s Solarshield will have exclusive access to proprietary Satcon component and spare parts supply as well all Satcon intellectual property, including critical software and technical designs, in order to provide complete service and technical support for owners of Satcon inverters across the United States and Canada. “Over the past two years, Trylon has built a world class field services organization across North America in order to support owners and operators of Satcon inverters,” said Kevin Smart, General Manager of Tryon’s Solarshield business unit. “The uncertainty over this past year exposed many Satcon customers to significant risks including system downtime, lack of access to critical components and spare parts, and operating without vital technical and software support. Our strengthened partnerships with both SIC and GreatWall allows us to continue to provide the highest levels of technical and field service backed by secure and ongoing access to the critical components and technical support.” To learn more about SIC USA, please visit www.skwentex.com or contact us at Toll Free 1-855-557-6779 or 1-408-456-6779 for the Help Desk Phone Support.
