SunPower Corp. has completed the acquisition of Australian integrator and distributor, Solar Sales Pty Ltd. With this acquisition, SunPower now extends its global presence into the emerging Australian solar market.

Founded in 1983, Solar Sales was one of Australia's first photovoltaic companies. Solar Sales offers solar panels and inverters via a national network of 30 dealers throughout Australia, and designs, builds and commissions large-scale commercial systems.

"Solar Sales has been a valued SunPower customer and partner for several years," said Howard Wenger, senior VP of global business units at SunPower. "The strength of its management team coupled with its market understanding and momentum will help to form an ideal platform from which we can succeed in both the commercial and residential markets."

Managing director of Solar Sales Bob Blakiston added: "I am tremendously excited that SunPower has chosen this time to enter the Australian market. This strategic acquisition strengthens our ability to bring SunPower's capabilities and proven components and systems technologies to the Australian market. As the demand for solar grows, we look forward to expanding our dealer base, commercial systems business and SunPower product offerings."
