Key company activities include production of high-efficiency monocrystalline and polycrystalline solar cells, photovoltaic modules and more. With a strong focus on R&D and the production of semiconductor materials, CSG is at the forefront of the industry and supplies key materials or complete sets of equipment using new energy technologies for power generation.
Mr. Qin Hao Peng described the company’s approach as based on guaranteeing high-quality products and after-sales support at a preferential price. Adopting the customer’s demand as the goal to aim for, CSG would formulate a production plan to respect delivery schedules. This entails intelligent manufacturing to improve competitiveness and as a core part of the company’s long-term development plans, this means finding the right balance between technology and manual labour. CSG would also focus on sustainability as an internal priority as well as in respect of the customer.
How has Cefla Finishing brought further value to CSG’s activities?
Recently, CSG has invested in producing light panels with high-permeability glass. Coating of these panels using Cefla’s cutting-edge Solar Coater has proven to deliver excellent coating standards and thanks to the consistency of the results and the stability of the equipment, CSG has managed to keep costs at a highly competitive level. Little or no downtime is a major advantage in boosting production efficiency, which is one aspect CSG was determined to achieve.

Excellent communication helps reach targets faster and better
Another aspect Mr. Qin Hao Peng was keen to mention was the importance of relationships between supplier and customer. In this case, it was a pleasure to liaise with Cefla’s team headed by a competent project manager, both before opting for the Solar Coater and following installation, through the after-sales service.
