With retroactive effect from 1 January 2010, ISOVOLTA AG is spinning off its successful photovoltaics division to create a separate organization. This new company will be assuming its operative international business activities as of 1 July 2010 under the name of ISOVOLTAIC GmbH.
ISOVOLTAIC is a spin-off of the ISOVOLTA Group and specializes solely in the development, production, marketing and sales of backsheet films for solar modules. It will continue the tradition of ISOVOLTA’s photovoltaics division as a separate company upon assuming its operative activities on 1 July 2010. With its pioneering film technology, such as the innovative ICOSOLAR® AAA material – introduced to the market in October 2009 –, ISOVOLTAIC will contribute substantially to making solar energy available for even more people in the future: the new generation of films has helped to solve the problem of raw material shortages which regimented the branch for many years, as well as accommodating the demand for competitive solar energy.
ISOVOLTAIC will have its headquarters in Lebring, Austria, at a location specially built for the exclusive production of ICOSOLAR® backsheet films in 2005, then as now the only site of its kind in the entire world. All of ISOVOLTAIC’s competencies – management, R&D, marketing, sales and production – are to be bundled here in a conscious effort to create an efficient, sustainable innovation centre which can flexibly and fast adapt production to market and customer requirements. In addition, this concentration enables ISOVOLTAIC to meet high quality standards and supply products around the globe that are reliable at all times and are for the most part “UL recognized”. This endeavour is of great importance to the company which, being a global market leader, exports almost 100% of its production.
