Schletter ramped up production capacity of its solar mounting system product line to keep customer delivery schedules on-time and costs low.

Schletter Inc., a leading U.S. manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) mounting systems, announces an increase to engineering and production capacity at its 75,000 square foot facility in Tucson, Arizona. Schletter provides engineering and design services, following strict IBC codes, while manufacturing products with a heightened level of quality to customers. In addition to more manufacturing and engineering capability, the Company has several ETL Listed products, including the Rapid2+™ grounding module clamp. “The benefit customers will experience with Schletter’s increased production and engineering capabilities is three fold,” said Martin Hausner, President of Schletter Inc. “Shorter lead times, reduced material costs, and decreased manufacturing turnaround times become even more important on projects with tight project deadlines. With the year end approaching, expectations to deliver product quickly and accurately becomes increasingly important for immediate installations. Schletter will have no problem meeting such expectations.” With the U.S. Department of Treasury grant scheduled to expire at the end of 2011, many companies are experiencing a push to complete large commercial and utility-scale projects, before the December 31st grant dead line, thereby maximizing grant benefits. With the shift in balance of systems costs and lower module prices, solar mounting manufacturers are seeking further cost savings for their customers. Schletter is continuously seeking greater efficiencies in order to reduce the costs associated with solar mounting systems. The latest production shifts will further extend efficiency goals. Schletter has already tested its enhanced high volume production and engineering capabilities by delivery several triple-digit megawatt solar mounting systems, such as with the 150 MW Zachry Industries installation. When asked about the production workflow, Christoph Hackner, Vice President of Production states “We can take on any sized project with efficient production and quality control, making short order of large system orders with narrow delivery schedules.”
