Midsummer AB of Järfälla, near Stockholm, Sweden – a provider of turnkey production lines as well as flexible, lightweight copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film solar panels for building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) – has boosted its staffing by 30 (from 45 to 75) since the beginning of 2018 to ramp up production in response to increased demand. The firm says it is experiencing greater global interest in DUO, its proprietary system for fast, fully automated manufacturing of CIGS solar cells. To further accelerate production volume, it recently recruited new production manager Sven Pettersson, who most recently worked with logistics, purchasing and production planning at Saab Industrial Group.

Pettersson has been working at defence industry group Saab since 2011, most recently as production controller responsible for logistics and purchasing. He previously worked in similar roles in companies including Strålfors AB and Aerosol Scandinavia AB, and has long experience in logistics, purchasing and production planning. Pettersson has an education in information logistics and calculation from Sweden’s Linné University.

Midsummer’s shares were listed on Nasdaq First North Stockholm on 21 June, in conjunction with implementing a new issue of about SEK100m shares, to expand production capacity from about 10 to 40 DUO machines per year in order to establish a production line for ‘Clix by Midsummer’ (a plug & play metal roof with integrated solar cells) as well as for marketing and strengthening working capital.

Midsummer says that it also plans further recruitment in technology as well as marketing and sales.
