(ASTI 4.22, -0.07, -1.63%), a developer of flexible thin-film solar modules, announced today that Samsonite, the worldwide leader in travel solutions, has selected flexible light-weight CIGS modules from Ascent Solar to be integrated into its new line of solar consumer products being initially rolled out this summer.

Samsonite Selects Ascent Solar Modules for Integration Into Carrying Case Products

Thornton, CO | Posted on April 15th, 2010

The two companies have been working together through product development and today's development symbolizes the progress and innovation from both companies to make portable power a part of an everyday product from a global leader in its industry.

Lynne Berard, Samsonite VP Sales & Marketing stated, "As our lives depend more and more on mobile electronics and the need to power and carry such devices, we believe that integrating solar panels into our carrying case solutions will be a game changer in the industry. By utilizing the unique, flexible, lightweight, rugged and subtle modules from Ascent Solar, we are able to provide our customers with power on the go, while not compromising our stringent standards for quality and style."

"Samsonite is a name that needs no introduction. They are a global leader in luggage and consumer travel products through innovation and customer service," said Farhad Moghadam, President and CEO of Ascent Solar. "Our selection by Samsonite gives Ascent Solar a clear path to market with solar integrated consumer products and establishes Ascent as a solar technology solution provider that can meet the needs of consumers demanding a rugged and light-weight portable way to power their electronics. We understand the evolution of the solar industry and how it can better relate to the consumer. With this in mind our goal is to enable and lead a new wave of portable solar charging solutions through Samsonite that will revolutionize the way we power our electronics anywhere and everywhere under the sun."
