Following the advice of both Ray Charles and Governor Sonny Perdue, MAGE SOLAR has decided to keep Georgia on its mind by announcing Dublin as its new North American headquarters. This branch of the globally operating MAGE SOLAR Group called Dublin, Georgia its home last Wednesday as they marked the official opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

With a guest list including Governor Purdue, Dr. Markus Feil – CEO of the Mage Industrie Holding AG headquartered in Germany, Dr. Lutz Görgens – Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany, Honorary Consuls from Denmark and the Czech Republic, and other high profile guests, MAGE SOLAR is showing serious commitment to its new headquarters in North America.

The German-based company specializes in photovoltaics. Generating sales of $180 million in the European market alone, it’s exciting to think of the possibilities in store for Georgia’s economy. Within the next five years, the company will invest $30 million and create 350 new jobs at its new location.

Carsten Jacobi, one of GACC South’s very own, also had the opportunity to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony. Responsible for coordinating renewable energies and energy efficiency projects/events, it’s understandable why he’s so excited for this renewable energy powerhouse to head to Georgia. “The GACC South and the German-American business community are pleased to welcome Mage Solar in the Southeast US, and are looking forward to further growth and development of solar and renewable energies in our region.” A whole new door is being opened in the Southeast.

We here at the GACC South are excited about the opportunity that MAGE SOLAR is creating and hope that many more companies will follow its lead and keep not only Georgia, but the entire Southeast on their minds.
