Message from the Chairman
As this ever-changing world shifts to renewable energy, my goal is to ensure the supply of polysilicon will continue to meet this new and growing global demand. I personally would like to see the polysilicon production to grow as it will make polysilicon material more readily available and ensure the growth and development of the photovoltaic industry along with meeting the continued and increasing demands of the semiconductor industry. We are in the midst of a paradigm shift and a revolution in the global perspective of energy and its consumption and I believe that the future of this industry is in the aggressive development of unique and advanced technologies to support the global demand for polysilicon.
