Israeli solar PV inverter company SolarEdge Technologies, Inc. has announced the appointment of Uri Bechor as the company’s chief operating officer. Bechor comes to SolarEdge from Flextronics International Ltd where he was senior vice president handling global operations for Europe and the Americas.
His role at Flextronics was to oversee more than 40 manufacturing sites with revenues of over $10 billion. He has also worked in Israel with Flextronics.
Welcoming Bechnor to SolarEdge, Co-Chairman of the company Nadav Zafrir said, “We are excited to welcome him to our team and confident that he will significantly enhance our operations capabilities and execution. Bechor will no doubt contribute greatly to the operational aspects needed to grow both our core smart energy business and our recently acquired businesses, including lithium ion cells and batteries of Kokam.”
SolarEdge wants to diversify its business model and has expanded itself to the electric vehicles business and battery storage (see SolarEdge To Acquire Electric Vehicles Company).
In Q2/2019, the company reported a record contribution from its solar business to group sales forcing it to increase production at an even faster pace than planned earlier (see SolarEdge Q2/2019 YoY Revenues Jump Up 43%).
