German high-tech glass industry giant Schott AG is bucking economic trends and is on schedule to open its new solar manufacturing plant at Mesa del Sol south of Albuquerque in spring, creating 350 jobs in the process, company officials said.

The 250,000 square feet of building space being erected at the site includes two adjacent manufacturing plants to make equipment for two different types of devices used to generate electricity from the sun.

Schott has already hired about 100 workers, most of them locals, who have been traveling to Europe to train in the company's existing manufacturing operations, said Zane Rakes, a former Intel manager who came on last summer to head Schott's Albuquerque operations, according to a Nov. 24 TradingMarkets.com report.
