Solar Leader To Open Plant in StapletonPosted on August 5, 2010
SMA America, LLC, a solar technology manufacturing plant, is moving into Stapleton and bringing with it new jobs. The new Stapleton plant will produce inverters for solar panels. Solar panels produce DC power, somewhat like a car battery. The inverter is what converts that power from the solar panels into grid-compliant AC energy that can be fed into the grid. The Denver site is North America’s largest PV inverter production site. Today, about 150 people are working to put together SMA America’s new manufacturing plant. “That number could approach 700 by the end of the year and could move to 1,000 in the future,” Philpott said!
Hiring at SMA America’s Stapleton manufacturing plant is ongoing, according to Philpott. The open positions are listed on the company’s website, www.sma-america.com. Click on “company” and then “jobs and careers.” Scroll to Open Positions (Denver Production). The jobs range from assembly employee to inverter test engineer. The website has company information and explains how to apply for jobs.
