PV Crystalox Solar PLC arose from the merger of the consolidation of operative subsidiaries Crystalox Ltd. in Oxford, United Kingdom, and PV Silicon AG in Erfurt, Germany. PV Crystalox is one of the leading independent producers of solar silicon wafers used in photovoltaics. Thanks to its technological leadership, the company has since 1990 played a significant role in the photovoltaic industry. Over the past five years, turnover has increased almost eightfold from about 32 million euros to about 242 million euros in 2006. An internationally experienced management team, supported by highly motivated and well-trained employees in Germany, Japan and England are responsible for this success. In June 2007 it successfully listed on the London Stock Exchange. The company uses the additional funds for inhouse silicon production in Bitterfeld to create a secured silicon feedstock supply and to further develop international business relationships. The worldwide leading solar cell producers form the customer base of the company, with which it has successfully collaborated for many years. As a partner of the solar cell producers as well as renowned research institutions further new products and technological solutions are being developed and offered for maximum customer benefit.
