Allied Solar Products—a Beacon Roofing Supply company and one of the nation’s largest distributors of photovoltaic panels, inverters, mounting hardware and solar accessories—has partnered with CertainTeed to expand the distribution of its Solstice Solar System.
Dave Jenkins, national vice president of solar for Allied Solar Products, noted his parent company’s long-standing relationship with CertainTeed’s building products divisions and said extending the relationship to its solar division “builds on our roofing and solar opportunities” and is “a win for both companies and their contractor customers.”
“Allied Solar always looks for ways to improve its supply chains so we can deliver popular products to as many customers as possible as quickly as possible,” said Jenkins. “The move allows us to leverage our logistics, just-in-time delivery, and dedicated solar sales teams to deliver Solstice. With one of the best warranties in the industry, this solution translates into value and peace of mind for installers and their customers.”
CertainTeed’s Solstice system combines high-quality components including modules, inverters, mounting and flashing with a single-source warranty. In addition, when installed by one of CertainTeed’s Credentialed or Master Solar Installers, CertainTeed warrants the installation workmanship on the system for up to 25 years. Considered CertainTeed’s most economical solar solution, Solstice systems are designed to maximize roof space and can be configured to best suit the needs of the client.
Mark Stancroff, director of CertainTeed Solar, said the Allied Solar Division’s sales know-how and logistical presence would complement CertainTeed’s strong brand recognition and installer base.
“Allied Solar’s team has strong product knowledge and solar industry expertise,” said Stancroff. “In addition, their parent company Beacon can deliver roofing material for solar jobs that require reroofs. All of this is supported by Beacon’s Pro+ e-commerce platform that allows customers to order 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“Solar and roofing contractors value these solutions which enable them to stand out in the marketplace,” Stancroff added. “Allied’s logistical capabilities and service platform allow them to provide a steady supply of product to contractors, making their work more efficient. They are a natural fit for the distribution of CertainTeed’s value-added solar solutions.”
