Renusol acquired by global renewable energy group

Solar mounting specialists Renusol GmbH, a subsidiary of Gibraltar Industries, has been acquired by global renewable energy company PARI Group.

The PARI Group says it intends to continue to serve Renusol GmbH’s customers in Europe, Middle East and Africa. Renusol America, Inc. will continue to serve the Americas and Rest of World as part of Gibraltar Industries.

PARI Group is a group of companies focusing on energy saving and renewable energy businesses. Among others it is operating Sonnenstromfabrik, Wismar, one of Europe’s largest solar module producers.

PARI Group also intends to take over a part of Renusol’s staff in Cologne. PARI Group will also retain the product offering and the brand name “Renusol”.

“We are planning to keep all customers and suppliers of Renusol on board. And, most important, we will build on Renusol’s great culture and service orientation,” says Alexander Kirsch, Partner of the PARI Group, who had already been Chairman of the Advisory Board of Renusol from 2004 to 2014.

In early December 2016, Gibraltar Industries, Inc. announced its exit from the Renusol GmbH business selling residential solar mounting systems in Europe. It is intended to close the transaction within the next four weeks.
