BEDFORD, Mass., June 8 -- Spire Corp. has entered into a global consortium agreement with Nisshinbo Industries Inc., based in Tokyo, for the development, manufacturing and sales of solar photovoltaic module manufacturing equipment.

Nisshinbo has purchased a permanent license to manufacture and sell Spire module manufacturing equipment for an undisclosed amount and additional royalties over the 10-year term of the agreement.
