We have positioned ourselves to be a leader in solar mounting and racking industry, and the Ohio expansion is further proof of that success.
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) June 16, 2015
RBI Solar, Inc., a manufacturer of utility and commercial scale solar mounting systems, is expanding its operations in OH. RBI has experienced enormous growth over the 2013 and 2014 years and has outgrown its current facility. The expanded facility will result in increased efficiency and production capacity for solar ground mount and carport systems. The company has purchased a 65,000sq-ft office and manufacturing space in TechSolve Business Park, at 6715 Steger Drive in order to meet the increased demand for solar racking products.
The existing facility at 5513 Vine Street will stay operational as well. RBI currently has 150 employees and planning to hire more at the new location. Pre-assembly has already been moved to the new location. The plan is to relocate RBI Solar headquarters by September 2015 with production starting in June 2015.
At the Cincinnati facility, RBI designs, engineers and manufactures customized solar racking structures for ground mount, carport and landfill solar projects. The new facility will feature computer numerical control – or CNC equipment, as well as automated welding equipment.
“We are very excited about the expansion of our Ohio facility and projected employment growth.” said Bill Vietas, General Manager. “We have positioned ourselves to be a leader in solar mounting and racking industry, and the Ohio expansion is further proof of that success.” Bill added.
Cincinnati based, RBI Solar is the leading solar racking manufacturer and installer specializing in ground mount, carport, landfill and roof mount solutions.
In 2014, RBI acquired Renusol GmbH, one of the PV industry’s leading solar mounting specialists for residential and commercial projects in Europe and in the US.
