Cylindrical thin-film PV manufacturer Solyndra has signed a new distribution agreement with Allied Building Products, a leading U.S. distributor of roofing, solar and other building products and materials. Allied will be the CIGS solar company’s first North American distributor.
“Solyndra’s unique solar panel technology should be considered by all commercial building owners evaluating new low-slope roof installations or reroofing applications,” said Bob Feury, CEO of the Rutherford, NJ-based building products firm.
“Allied Building Products has broad reach, extensive customer support, and strong logistics capabilities in the roofing channel,” said Chris Gronet, Solyndra’s CEO and founder.
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
