Esdec announced today that it has acquired EcoFasten Solar, a company in the design, engineering and manufacture of water-tight solar roof mounts and components for the U.S. residential and commercial sectors. The combination of Esdec and EcoFasten Solar creates a major solar rooftop mounting player with 5GW installed worldwide.
"Esdec and EcoFasten Solar are a perfect fit," said Stijn Vos, global CEO of Esdec. "Both companies have proven track records in launching differentiated products that serve the needs of installers and support them in their daily business. By combining these two customer-oriented forces, we are providing installers, distributors and the market with a very compelling, diversified product offering for both pitched and flat roof projects."
EcoFasten Solar founder and roofing expert Brian Stearns started his Phoenix-based company to bridge the gap between solar array designers and the people who install those systems. Stearns will be instrumental in product development and utilizing the combined R&D resources of both companies to deliver even more efficient and reliable residential systems for the U.S. market.
"Esdec and EcoFasten Solar are cut from the same cloth," he said. "We each have roots as roofers and solar installers and listen carefully to our customers' needs, and we also share a relentless drive for innovation. I'm looking forward to helping the Esdec and EcoFasten brands reach the next level together, while focusing on what I love to do most¾working closely with the installer community, developing new products, and bringing them quickly to the market."
