The company tasked with making a key part of Tesla's solar panels and solar roofs is holding a hiring event in Western New York.

Panasonic makes the solar cells needed for the energy-efficient products manufactured at Tesla's Riverbend site in downtown Buffalo.

The company will hold a hiring event at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center on June 13, 2018 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Open positions include production/manufacturing operators, electrical/mechanical technicians and process engineers. You can register for the event here

Last July, the company announced it would hire 300 workers here in Western New York to help with solar production. Half of those workers were set to be hired by August 2017, the other half were supposed to be hired by March of this year. It is unclear whether Panasonic fulfilled that pledge or if this hiring event will help them meet that employment goal.
