Local Assembly Plants

Entrepreneurs, Relief and Missions Organizations can now assemble GLOBAL SUNS OVENS® on location- dramatically reducing the cost, creating local jobs, while getting ovens into the hands of the people who need them most.

SUN OVENS International, Inc. has created a complete turnkey GLOBAL SUN OVEN® assembly system that enables the assembly of the GLOBAL SUN OVEN® anywhere in the world.

This complete assembly system includes the training, tools, instructional materials and follow-up support necessary to enter into renewable energy manufacturing.

When shipped unassembled, four times as many GLOBAL SUN OVENS® will fit into a shipping container. This will lower the shipping cost as well as create jobs in the country in which they will be used. (Many governments will waive or reduce duty and tariff charges on components that are used in manufacturing or assembly.)

All that is required, in addition to the assembly system, is a secure facility (of at least 800 square feet), two worktables, and a technician to receive 80 hours of training. The time from purchase to full production can be as little as 60 days.

All the tooling and templates required to successfully complete the assembly process. A comprehensive training program at the Sun Ovens International Inc. facility in Elburn, Illinois USA. All of the components necessary to assemble GLOBAL SUN OVENS® Note: This package is available only in conjunction with the minimum purchase of 250 unassembled ovens.
