The Client

Triton Solar produces high quality, highly efficient solar cells, flexible lighting and batteries. They are the only company in the world to provide hybrid solar panels that not only generate power, but also store it for use at a later time. This is done without communication to the electric grid, making their solar panels the most efficient on the market. Their nanotechnology is applied to printed lighting and batteries, which can be customized for multiple applications. For lighting, their hardware features the first printable lighting available for commercial use. Triton Solar serves small business owners, educational institutions, and national governments to help with their “Go Green” project management needs.

A Cost-Effective Solution with Complete Traceability of Material

Triton Solar was producing the electrical connections for their lithium battery packs in house, but soon realized that they needed faster production capabilities. With a deadline looming, they turned to Germantown Tool for custom metal fabrication to turn-around 400 laser cut parts in just four days.

With the potential of 80,000 – 100,000 parts needed in production in the future, Germantown Tool is uniquely positioned to grow with Tritons increasing needs by building dies and running the parts as metal stampings. Triton is now positioned to increase production of alternative energy products while reducing costs by taking advantage of Germantown Tool’s custom metal fabrication solutions.
