Gintech possesses all of the capabilities needed for rapid growth. Since its establishment in August 2005, Gintech's impressive performance has enabled the company to establish itself as a leading player in the solar energy industry. Gintech commenced its production in 2006; the company was listed on Taiwan's Emerging Stocks Exchange in 2006, and on the Taiwan Stock Exchange in 2007. Sales revenue has risen steadily.
Since beginning its production in July 2006, Gintech has worked tirelessly to boost the output and efficiency of its solar cell production. Within two months after commencing volume production, Gintech had achieved a yield rate and an average conversion efficiency that were the highest in the industry. Production at Factory Site A, Hsinchu Science Park, began in 2007 and has reached total production capacity of 870MW. Gintech became the world’s largest solar cell plant in one single building in 2009. We added 300MW capacity at Site B (Science Park) at the end of 2011.
We are constantly working in providing state-of-the-art crystalline solar cells to famous, international module manufacturers, and upgrading product efficiency and service quality. Our products are distributed to customers in Germany, Spain, Italy, other European countries, the United States, Japan, China, India, Korea and other Asian countries.

Gintech plans to continue expanding its production capacity in order to achieve greater economies of scale; by 2H 2012, total installed capacity will reach 1.5GW. Furthermore, Gintech has formed strategic alliances with upstream polysilicon and wafer makers and with downstream module manufacturers and system integration distributors, so as to enhance its competitiveness through vertical integration.
