German solar pioneer Wagner Solar Inc. targets North America with award-winning products
For many years, the almost identical EURO C20 collector from Wagner & Co had carried the label "Europe's most powerful collector". These collectors were specifically designed for high performance under adverse conditions at high latitudes, and many of the earlier solar thermal systems produced by Wagner & Co are successfully operating for a quarter century. Solar energy installations from Wagner & Co can be found as far north as Scotland and Scandinavia - locations comparable to southern Alaska!
After 30 years of successful growth and expansion throughout Europe, the first step in North America was taken in spring 2010: German solar pioneer Wagner & Co established its US subsidiary Wagner Solar Inc. in Massachusetts. "We are confident to have an edge in the market", says Joerg Gaebler, a renown German-American energy expert and CEO of the Company's US branch. "Wagner & Co is an award winning one stop provider of solar energy solutions, and the new US branch will benefit from more than 30 years of solar engineering experience, providing quality, durability and peak performance to its North American customers."
Wagner Solar GmbH
Wagner & Co is one of the leading collector manufacturers in Europe. The company offers solutions for solar heating applications and solar electricity. In 1979 Wagner & Co was spearheaded by nine college students rooted in the ecology and anti nuclear movements of the 70s. Nowadays the company headquarter and main production facilities are situated in Cölbe and Kirchhain, right in the geographic heart of the EU (near Frankfurt, Germany). The company is employeeowned, independent from the stock market and has more than 350 employees. The total turnover amounts to approx. 250 million Euro. Through its national subsidiaries in France, Spain, Italy and the United States, the company passes on its more than 30 years of experience across Europe and beyond. Many times Wagner & Co products came out first in rigorous tests by Stiftung Warentest (German consumer testing agency), and currently the solar package COMBI line SH 1440 AR is certified as "best in test" for the third time in a row in spring 2009. For its all pervading sustainability practice, in 2005 Wagner & Co received the famed prizes of the German Solar Energy Society (DGS) and the European Association for Renewable Energy (EUROSOLAR) in the category "Company". In the field of solar electricity the company offers highly efficient photovoltaic systems with precisely dimensioned installation components produced by globally renown manufacturers. Wagner & Co is a pioneer on the European solar market.
