Ferro's Electronic Material Systems business has begun production of solar aluminum paste at its expanded Suzhou, China, facility.

Ferro Corp. recently announced that its Electronic Material Systems (EMS) business unit has begun production of solar aluminum paste at its expanded Suzhou, China, facility. The 16,500-square-meter plant has room for future expansion to manufacture products such as silver pastes, surface technology products, multilayer materials, electronic glass and precious metal powders. The Suzhou facility also houses an applications laboratory to support regional development, as well as application technology engineers to assist customers in their product development efforts.

“Asia is now the largest source of solar cells in the world, with three of the top five producers located in the region,” said Jeffrey Edel, EMS’ general manager for advanced materials. “Also, a number of companies are expanding production into Asia. We expanded our production and applied technology capabilities in Suzhou to serve the needs of these customers.”
