June 13, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

Kyocera Solar Inc. (Scottsdale, AZ) announced the sale of Sunelco (Hamilton, MT) to Tom Bishop, a long-time Sunelco employee and division manager. Terms of the sale were not disclosed. Bishop has formed a new company, Sunelco Inc., which is an authorized dealer of Kyocera solar products.

"Kyocera's sale of Sunelco reflects our focused business strategy and eliminates a possibility for Kyocera to be in competition with its dealer network," said Kyocera Solar President Doug Allday. "We wish Tom Bishop and the Sunelco team all the best, and we welcome them into our family of authorized dealers."
