SunLink Fuels Solar Growth with New Silicon Valley Bank Credit Line
San Rafael, Calif., June 24, 2015 — As part of the company’s expansion from a leading PV mounting systems manufacturer to a full-scope solar energy solutions company, SunLink Corporation has engaged Silicon Valley Bank (Nasdaq: SIVB) to provide a new line of credit and other financial services in support of the company’s continued expansion. Well known for successfully backing high-growth companies for the past 30 years, Silicon Valley Bank will provide invaluable support to SunLink as the company explores new opportunities to advance universal solar adoption.
