3S Industries and DKSH Group Partner to Expand in Korea and Taiwan

3S Industries, a provider of production equipment for the manufacture of solar modules, and the Swiss DKSH Group have announced that they are working together with immediate effect to expand in the markets of Korea and Taiwan.

The partnership facilitates optimal support for existing and new customers in these two major growth markets of Asia, said 3S Industries.

It is reported that DKSH Group's experience, local networks and comprehensive logistical services will enable 3S Industries with its three subsidiaries Somont, 3S Swiss Solar Systems and Pasan to penetrate the Korean and Taiwanese markets.

Andreas Schoni, sales manager at 3S Swiss Solar Systems, said: "Through this partnership with DKSH, we will be able to react more quickly to local opportunities. DKSH offers us access to the markets, distribution competence and the essential customer services.

"In addition, we can benefit from the strong infrastructure and customer base of DKSH in Asia and will therefore be able to reach and support the producers of solar modules far more easily in both countries."
