S-5! identified a need in the market for prudent solar attachment solutions and the opportunity to scale within the Asia-Pacific region. The company is pleased to welcome Blair Irvine to its team. 

Irvine will fill S-5!’s newly created ANZ Business and Engineering Manager role.  He will be responsible for providing on-site technical support and developing industry relationships with EPCs and distributors to increase market awareness.
