Mingyang Wind Power Industry Group, the third largest wind energy company in China, announced today that it will open a Dallas-based operations office.
The new office will be a hub for the global expansion of the company, which is not government owned. Mingyang is backed by the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, a major shareholder and recently identified as the largest bank in the world.
The wind company, which manufactures turbines but also provides engineering and financial services, promotes itself as a “total solutions” wind company, offering a start to finish program to wind developers, a news release said. It promotes its services and equipment as the most technically advanced available; it’s wind blades are built to withstand extreme temperatures.
Mingyang, which employes 2,000 people at five locations in China, expects to serve customers in North and South America from its office on Central Expressway in Dallas, and anticipates building manufacturing facilities in cities “like Dallas,” the news release reported.
“Mingyang chose Dallas for our first operations center outside of China because of its strategic location, employment base, and pro-business environment,” said Wang Song, senior vice president, managing director and one of two founders of Mingyang.
The company will have a formal announcement at the WINDPOWER 2010 convention currently underway in Dallas.
Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert welcomed the company during an appearance at WINDPOWER 2010 on Monday. “Mingyang’s new operations in Dallas create a win-win relationship,” Mayor Leppert said. “Its investment over the long term means local jobs, development of more renewable power, and another step toward national security. We are excited about supporting the company’s leadership team. We want Dallas to be Mingyang’s U.S. home.”
