February 25, 2013 - Singulus Technologies (Singulus) selected DKSH as partner of choice in Korea, thereby benefiting from DKSH's value-added Market Expansion Services such as market research, structured sales and marketing. DKSH leverages its experience in the solar market to grow Singulus' presence in Korea's photovoltaic industry.
Korea's manufacturing goals are targeted towards equipment and advanced technology development, with products to be exported and sold abroad.

Dr.-Ing. Stefan Rinck, CEO at Singulus, stated: "With new machine concepts and manufacturing processes Singulus establishes itself as development partner and equipment supplier for investments in new high-performance solar cell concepts. DKSH is one of the leading addresses in market development for technology goods. Their footprint in Asian high-technology markets offers tremendous opportunities for our company and we look forward to a fruitful cooperation."
