July 7 (Renewables Now) - Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) maker Mitrex has kicked off operations at a new factory in Toronto, Ontario, where it will manufacture solar cladding, windows and railings.

The company said in a statement on Tuesday that the new site will also serve as its head office and will enable it to localise its production in Canada, whilst ramping up product offerings into other markets such as the US. The factory spans over 100,000 sq ft (9,290 sq m) and features a fully automated production line.

"The new factory equipped with our robust production line will allow Mitrex to produce 25,000 square feet of solar integrated panels such as solar cladding and solar glass for windows and railing per day," said CEO Danial Hadizadeh.

Mitrex expects to use the same factory structure in future facilities throughout Canada, the US and the rest of the world.
