BLAUBEUREN, Germany, March 4, 2016 — Centrotherm Photovoltaics AG has announced changes to its management board.
Peter Augustin has been appointed a member of its management board, with Florian von Gropper stepping down as board spokesman.
Augustin will be focused on driving the company’s new strategic orientation against the backdrop of Solarpark Blautal’s 2016 acquisition of 80 percent of Centrotherm’s shares from Sol Futura Verwaltungsgesellschaft.
"These were two challenging, interesting and successful years at Centrotherm," von Gropper said. "All forces united to enable us to restructure the group and conduct the sale process.”
Centrotherm is a developer of thermal processing and coating solutions for the manufacture of crystalline solar cells and power semiconductors.
