Gibraltar Industries, a manufacturer and distributor of products for building and industrial markets, has acquired U.S. Sunlight Corp., a supplier of solar-powered ventilation products. The acquisition complements Gibraltar’s Air Vent Inc. product offering and customer base in the residential new construction and home-remodeling markets. The addition also brings innovative, energy-saving solar technology.
“We are excited about the addition of U.S. Sunlight to our family of businesses,” says Chuck Jerasa, president of Gibraltar’s Storage and Ventilation business unit. “U.S. Sunlight brings a robust pipeline of cutting edge solar-powered ventilation, lighting and air quality products which will enhance our Air Vent product line and bring immediate value to our customers.”
“Adding this solar ventilation product line will strengthen our position within the growing energy conservation segment of the building materials market space,” adds Gibraltar Chairman and CEO Brian Lipke. “It provides us with access to innovative technology for future product designs and opportunities to grow the business through marketing of additional products to current and prospective Gibraltar customers.”
To ensure a smooth transition and the same outstanding service, the existing management team of U.S. Sunlight will be staying on with the company post acquisition.
