TPI Composites has signed a long-term agreement with Gamesa to supply blades for its G114 wind turbine from TPI's revamped factory in Juarez, Mexico. Gamesa will use these blades to serve wind projects in the U.S. and Mexico, as well as for export to other emerging regional markets.

Borja Negro, CEO of Gamesa North America, says, "We are excited to be partnering with TPI to provide world-class wind blades to our regional target markets. TPI's quality and process rigor, as well as its strong record of delivering many thousands of reliable blades, make TPI an excellent partner for Gamesa."

TPI's Juarez factory was formerly operated as a joint venture under the name of VienTek and is now 100% owned by TPI and serving multiple customers. TPI announced in December 2013 that it was reopening the plant and has begun rehiring about 600 former VienTek employees.

“It is great for TPI to complement our northern Midwestern location in Newton, Iowa, with a plant site on the Texas-Mexico border that can cost-effectively serve a broader market," notes Steve Lockard, president and CEO of TPI Composites.
