Germany-based solar photovoltaics manufacturer, Mage Solar has partnered with logistics company Kuehne +Nagel for the opening of new a warehouse and dispatch centre in Dagenham. The logistics centre will substantially cut down the lead-time Mage Solar’s British installation partners currently experience.

Mage established a UK-based sales team at the start of 2011 and is now steadily expanding its network of installation partners.

Dr. Markus Feil, CEO of Mage Solar explained: “For us, customer proximity is the key to our success. Our partner program and the personalised advice and support provided by our local sales managers have enabled us to establish close relations with local installation partners.”

Feil summarised the reasoning behind the new logistics centre by explaining: “Our new logistics centre is a further logical step towards quickly satisfying the demands of our customers.”

Mage Solar remains positive about the British market despite the current discussion about the feed-in tariffs. In particular, Mage Solar believes that small and medium-sized rooftop installations in the private customer segment will continue to grow strongly.
