VII forum Association Italy China " Italian success stories in China"

Mr. Miciano did a presentation on Coveme's experience in opening a manufacturing plant in Zhangjiagang, an industrial pool located 200 km north of Shanghai, where the company produces backsheet laminates for solar module protection.

The presentation focused on the chances and challenges of a European company setting up a production site from scratch in Chinese territory, in particular in the photovoltaics market, where Coveme was the first European material manufacturer to take up this opportunity. Chinese solar module manufacturers, Coveme's main target, produce today 40 gigawatts, over 80% of the global production, a number expected to raise towards 70 gigawatts by 2017.
