Unirac sent word that it has completed the acquisition of Ecolibrium Solar, a solar racking manufacturer headquartered in Athens, Ohio. The acquisition represents a significant expansion of Unirac’s product portfolio, adding Ecolibrium’s commercial flat roof, residential rail-less and metal roof products to its product line.
Ecolibrium’s suite of products includes Ecofoot, a polymer-based solution for flat roofs that integrates with Unirac’s recently launched FlashLoc RM attachment, as well as EcoX, a pioneering rail-less product line for residential customers. EcoX is a complement to Unirac’s market-leading SFM Infinity line, offering different features and a metal roof solution in its MetalX version.
“We are excited about the Ecolibrium team and the products they have brought to the market. They share our passion for customer success and have a strong focus on distribution,” says Peter Lorenz, CEO of Unirac.
“Better solar starts with great partnerships. The increased scale in production, engineering services and field support allows us to help customers reduce costs and grow their solar business, especially on commercial projects,” he adds.
Unirac’s plan is to integrate Ecolibrium’s team and products over the next few months.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
