PHILOSOPHY

Since 1999, we have been consistently developing new ideas and concepts for the optimum use of solar energy through solar module tracking. We develop, build, produce, and service intelligent tracking systems for photovoltaic modules. We thus make this technology of the future more efficient and consequently, more economical. In doing so, we systematically minimize product development costs and pass these cost savings on to our customers. Despite the constantly changing competitive situation, we therefore create a clear advantage for our customers in an increasingly networked global economy.

Our company philosophy is driven by innovation and vision and supported by a special corporate culture that represent values for our company, employees, customers, and business partners.
