MicroLink Devices has announced plans to expand its facility in Niles, Illinois. The company will invest $9.5 million into the project, which is designed to help MicroLink increase its design and manufacturing operations of solar cells and solar sheets. The expansion will also include a new testing and assembly lab. MicroLink will receive a Reimagining Energy and Vehicles in Illinois incentive package, which will help the state bolster its manufacturing sector and grow the clean energy ecosystem.
In a recent quote, MicroLink Devices CEO Dr. Noren Pan said, "The expansion of our Niles facility greatly helps us increase and mature our production manufacturing capacity to meet current and future market demand for solar powered aircraft and next generation satellites. These critical high-tech platforms provide support for national security missions, life-saving disaster relief and recovery missions, surveillance, and communications."
