Silfab Solar, a leading North American solar panel manufacturer, today announced plans to expand its U.S. footprint by establishing operations in York County. The company’s $150 million investment will create 800 new jobs.

The company designs, engineers and manufactures its own brand of high-efficiency solar panels for both residential and commercial use and operates facilities in Bellingham and Burlington, Washington, and one in Toronto, Canada.

The new site, a 785,000-square-foot building at 7149 Logistics Lane in Fort Mill in York County will manufacture next-generation solar cell technology, boosting U.S solar cell production.

Renovations are expected to be online in the third quarter of 2024. Individuals who are interested in joining the Silfab Solar team should visit the company’s careers page.
