Our panels are then installed to allow customers to benefit from the sun.” SolarTech Universal now employs approximately 40 staff members and plans to hire more when the factory ramps up to full production later this year. “We look forward to collaborating with the community to source the workforce from Riviera Beach and the surrounding area,” Rosenstein said. SolarTech Universal has partnered with CareerSource Palm
Beach County to provide on the job training (OJT) for individuals who need to build their skill sets. “This has been a great way to provide local jobs in a fastgrowing, renewable energy sector,” he added. “We are also actively engaging with local high schools and universities.” SolarTech Universal has participated in events at Palm Beach State College and Florida Atlantic University and plans to continue its community outreach. “We hope to offer competitive jobs and internships to recent grads and students, especially within the engineering field, to apply their talent and creativity to a rapidly changing industry,” Rosenstein said. “This is an excellent opportunity for budding talent to make a difference at a new company and positively impact our future success.”
