Global Wind Group Inc. (GWG) has hit the ground running in 2011, which is shaping up to be our biggest and most productive year thus far. We have been growing inside and out with new staff, joint ventures, and new and improved products.
In July, we welcomed John Fjeldsted as our new CEO. John brings with him a wealth of experience stemming from his 30+ year career with Manitoba Hydro, and his work as Executive Director of the Manitoba Environmental Industries Association. GWG has been very pleased with the work John has done to further our company and strengthen ties with the Manitoba government over the last six months.
Following our win in the first annual Green Dragons Lair with the Manitoba Environmental Industries Association in October GWG was recognized as one of Canada’s hottest innovative companies in 2010 by The Canadian Innovation Exchange in Toronto, Ontario.
In 2010 ZüS™ Modular Power System has gone through some modifications to make it more efficient and cost effective. As our engineering team continued to work diligently on new products, the NaNo ZüS™ was born. The biggest advantage of the NaNo ZüS™ is its compact size. At 3ft (1M) high, 3ft (1M) wide, and only 60lbs (27kG), the Nano ZüS™ can be installed virtually anywhere. You will see the NaNo ZüS™ on the market in the summer of 2011.
As 2010 ended GWG had several individuals join our team including Vincent Ceccarelli as our Global Account Manager who will be responsible to generate and manage our technical sales and global dealers. Vince has been working hard to get the ZüS™ Modular Power System from the factory to wind near you! Additionally, Greg Adamiec and Mary Stuart have joined the Global Wind Group Team. Greg has quickly become an integral part of our company as the Internet Marketing Manager quickly spreading the word about GWG and our products. Finally, our newest addition Mary Stuart is the Technical Service Representative bridging the gap between the customer and engineer.
While 2010 saw many fruitful and dynamic changes transpire, we can assure you that even more good things will continue to blow through GWG in 2011. Justin, Alex and the entire GWG team are working hard to make GWG and the ZüS™ brand a household name in the international micro wind market.
