JinkoSolar, a China-based solar product manufacturer, has established a US subsidiary with an office in San Francisco, California.

The US subsidiary is expected to function as a marketing and service base to increase the company’s brand recognition and facilitate business development in strategic markets within North America.

JinkoSolar chief strategy officer Arturo Herrero said that with the establishment of the new subsidiary, the company is well positioned to capitalize on the fast growing US PV market, which holds tremendous economic potential in the next couple of years.

"Our new US subsidiary will allow us to provide better services and strengthen our relationships with existing North American customers as well as help us attract new customers in the region," Herrero said.
