Photovoltaic modules manufacturer Solaria has cancelled its temporary employment regulation file for its factories at Fuenmayor (La Rioja) and Puertollano (Ciudad Real) and has taken on 100 new staff due to an increase in orders, according to its report to the National Securities Market Commission. The temporary employment regulation file was in for 34 employees at Fuenmayor and 103 employees at Puertollano.

The manufacturer said that, as a result of "growing demand", it had taken on 100 new staff at the Puertollano plant and had almost doubled its staff at Fuenmayor. Solaria also indicated that, if forecasts for international orders are accurate, "the total workforce for the two factories will reach 1,000 employees by the end of the year".

The employment regulation files for Fuenmayor and Puertollano came into force on 25 February 2010 and 8 August 2009.
