SOPREMA and Pfister Energy announce partnership to promote, deliver and build “stackable” renewable energy solutions nationally

SOPREMA the world’s largest manufacturer of SBS (styrene butadiene styrene) modified bitumen roofing and waterproofing products and Pfister Energy, a leading provider of turnkey solar installations and renewable energy systems, announce a partnership to promote, build and deliver renewable energy systems for commercial, industrial and institutional facilities nationwide.

As strategic business partners, SOPREMA and Pfister share a commitment to renewable and energy efficiency technologies while providing the best, most efficient solution to business owners with the focus on return on investment.

SOPREMA, a family owned business founded in 1908, leads the industry in innovative building envelope solutions with products designed to protect the entire building envelope including below grade, plaza, terrace and wall applications through the combined talent of chemists, engineers and technical experts in SOPREMA’s Research and Development laboratories. SOPREMA is known worldwide as a leader in product development with extensive experience in chemical engineering, product manufacturing and system design.

“With our environmentally friendly systems, and the increasing global demand for energy, this partnership along with our technical expertise will provide excellent solutions and the latest innovations for our mutual customer base. We are taking a lead role together, to extend the roof life cycle and to help maintain a healthy planet and minimize our customers’ carbon footprint,” said Tim Kersey, Vice President and General Manager (USA).

The alliance also supports Pfister’s perspective on holistic installation and “stackable” green energy solutions: layering multiple renewable technologies that work together to reduce energy load and create clean power. Serving clients across a number of industries, Pfister Energy offers design, procurement, installation, commissioning and maintenance of photovoltaic (PV Solar), BIPVT, solar thermal, natural day lighting, wind power solar lighting, green roofing, geothermal, rainwater harvesting and fuel cell systems.

“When you are putting a small power plant on your roof, it makes sense to invest in the highest quality roofing materials available” says Wayne Pfister, President of Pfister Energy. Over their lifetime, renewable can be worth 20 to 40 times the cost of the roof itself. By offering a better, more durable roofing system that utilizes SBS modified bitumen roofing and waterproofing products, we can assure our clients that their building is protected from the elements, and that their investments in renewable energy systems are well protected,” continues Pfister.

SOPREMA and Pfister Energy will offer services throughout the US.
