The Arborview partnership will allow Alpen to accelerate our growth and capitalize on the compelling growth opportunities in our core markets.
CHEVY CHASE, Md. (PRWEB) December 10, 2019
Arborview Capital announced today that it has completed an investment in Alpen High Performance Products, Inc. (“Alpen”), a leading US designer and manufacturer of high efficiency windows, doors and insulated glass products.
Alpen is a recognized leader in ultra-high performance windows and glass, a small but rapidly growing segment of the $25 billion US window market. Demand for high efficiency windows, doors and glass is experiencing rapid growth due to the expanding market for buildings built to net-zero energy and passive house standards. Other factors driving growth are tighter local building codes focused on improved energy efficiency and greater focus on interior building comfort and sound attenuation. Additionally, strong demand for cost-effective solutions for retrofitting existing buildings through improved window efficiency is another major area of expected growth.
“The Arborview partnership will allow Alpen to accelerate our growth and capitalize on the compelling growth opportunities in our core markets,” said Alpen’s CEO, Brad Begin. “Arborview provides capital, market knowledge and expertise to help us better serve our existing markets and broaden the overall market for our products. In addition, their experience investing in the efficient building product market enables them to take a highly collaborative approach to helping us manage the opportunities and challenges of scaling our business.”
“For over a decade, Alpen has been a leader in delivering innovative high efficiency and high performance windows and glass to residential and commercial building owners,” said Joe Lipscomb, Partner of Arborview. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Brad Begin and the rest of the Alpen family to continue building on this legacy of innovation and expertise. Efficient building products are a key area of focus for Arborview as we continue building a diversified portfolio of clean energy investments.”
Alpen, based in Boulder, CO, is a leading designer and manufacturer of high efficiency windows, doors and commercial glass. The Company draws on a more than 30-year history of industry leadership and innovation in high performance window and glass manufacturing to produce a suite of products which are among the most energy efficient available. Alpen works closely with the sustainability and energy efficiency building community, including those involved in the rapidly expanding market for passive house and net zero energy standards, to continually develop enhancements responsive to the needs of customers seeking greater energy efficiency.
