Company celebrates exponential growth of OMCO Solar designed solutions
PHOENIX, Ariz. – June 29, 2021 – OMCO Solar announced today that it has shipped 1GW of its factory-direct products* over the past year including Field-Fast™ Slide And Stay Fixed Tilt Mounting System, OMCO Choice™ Direct-Bolt Mounting System and OMCO Origin™ Factory-Direct Trackers installed in 30 U.S. states, bringing clean solar energy to farms, schools, factories, municipalities, and utilities. Including 8 GW of contract manufacturing solar products, OMCO Solar now has delivered over 9 GW to the market.
As the nation’s premier manufacturer of solar racking and tracker solutions for community, commercial, industrial and utility-scale projects, OMCO Solar’s expertise stems from decades of steel manufacturing, beginning in 1955 when OMCO Holdings was founded. OMCO Solar introduced its first proprietary mounting product, the FIELD-FAST fixed-tilt racking system in 2017, followed by the launch of its CHOICE direct-bolt mounting system and OMCO ORIGIN factory-direct, single-axis tracker system in 2019.
OMCO Solar has increased its yearly manufacturing capacity to more than 3GW with a nationwide footprint. Products are directly shipped from four strategic U.S. locations, to ensure the shortest lead times in the industry.
Furthermore, OMCO Solar is proud to announce that Black & Veatch Management Consulting LLC has completed an independent bankability study for the ORIGIN Single-Axis Tracker, assessing the product’s design, performance, reliability, manufacturing & installation and operations & maintenance. The study illustrates that OMCO’s ORIGIN is in accordance with industry best practices and standards with proven quality control processes for its manufacturing and supply.
“With more than 12 years as a contract manufacturer of racking, and our long history of steel manufacturing, we knew we had the expertise, capacity and scalability to enter the direct-sell market, offering our own products,” Gary Schuster, president and CEO of OMCO Holdings said. “Today, we are proud to offer our OMCO Solar products, which are primarily manufactured in our 4 factories, right here in the USA. With our US manufacturing footprint and highly skilled workforce, we can provide the highest quality products and the shortest lead times in the industry. Even with the challenges of 2020, we were pleased to see our footprint grow, and are thankful to our partners for their role in helping us keep the momentum going.”
In Florida, OMCO Solar is working with Moss Solar to complete six utility-scale projects totaling more than 600MW. Once completed, this will be the largest fixed-tilt portfolio in the company’s history, and one of the largest in the U.S.
“Our experience working with OMCO Solar and installing its solutions gives us confidence that we’ll continue to benefit from a strong relationship as these projects are commissioned and energized,” Edwin Perkins, president of Moss Solar, said. “OMCO Solar products are easy to assemble and install, and are backed by a strong customer support team.”
Following tremendous 2020 growth, OMCO Solar continues to invest in its engineering team to help accelerate product development while continuing to provide fast and excellent technical service to customers. OMCO Solar’s integrated team – which includes product development, sales, engineering, manufacturing, logistics and field services – ensures a one-stop-shop enterprise with elegant product solutions to reduce costs and complexity.
OMCO Solar’s growth will also be featured in Wood Mackenzie’s Global PV Tracker Market Update.
“As demand for solar energy increases, OMCO Solar’s growth indicates it will remain a strong player in the PV tracker market,” said Sagar Chopra, P.E., research analyst, power & renewables at Wood Mackenzie.
