MUNICH, GERMANY: Solyndra Inc., a manufacturer of cylindrical photovoltaic (PV) systems for large industrial and commercial rooftops, announced a multi-year sales agreement with Sika Services AG, a manufacturer of roofing materials headquartered in Baar, Switzerland. The companies will work together to promote Sika’s highly reflective roofing products together with Solyndra’s rooftop photovoltaic systems.
“Sika has a strong reputation as a supplier of roofing materials and photovoltaic systems worldwide. We are pleased to work together with them to develop a powerful combined offering for the challenging environment of the commercial rooftop solar market,” said Clemens Jargon, Solyndra’s President EMEA and Managing Director, Solyndra Gmbh.
“Their knowledge of rooftops and materials combined with our expertise in solar systems will help us work together to generate the highest amount of energy from commercial and industrial rooftops.”
