Dutch rooftop mounting manufacturer Esdec has acquired US-based EcoFasten Solar.

The resulting entity has installed more than 5GW of rooftop mounting systems and accelerates Esdec’s entry into the US market.

The Netherlands-based firm launched its US subsidiary at SPI in September this year. With Arizona-based EcoFasten it has gained the knowledge built up during 3GW of US installs.

“Esdec and EcoFasten Solar are cut from the same cloth,” said Brian Stearns, founder of EcoFasten. “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 most – working closely with the installer community, developing new products, and bringing them quickly to the market.”  

Esdec launched a major innovation facility in the Netherlands earlier this year and both companies will now benefit from that resource, according to a statement. Stijn Vos, global CEO of Esdec told PV Tech at SPI that its R&D push was not only about driving new products but also about meeting certification requirements as it pushed into new markets.

“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,” said Vos.
