OMCO Solar surpasses 9.5 GW of domestic PV racking production

After the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), OMCO Solar expanded its manufacturing facility in Pierceton, Indiana, reaching a milestone by shipping 9.5 GW of solar mounting and shelving solutions.

In light of the company’s latest $5 million investment in solar production announced in April 2022, OMCO Solar has now spent a total of $75 million on equipment and tooling at its four domestic plants in Alabama, Arizona. Indiana and Ohio. OMCO Solar’s latest investment focuses on the production of OMCO Origin Tracker Torque Tubes in Indiana and Arizona.

“With more than 65 years of advanced steelmaking and more than a decade of in-house development of racks and trackers, OMCO Solar has long been committed to domestic manufacturing,” said Gary Schuster, president and CEO of OMCO Holdings. “In fact, we are the only rack and tracker company with all manufacturing locations in the US, enabling factory shipping for the shortest lead times and low freight costs.”

To further expand the capacity of its Indiana facilities, the company has added an additional facility and now has a total of more than 500,000 square feet of domestic manufacturing capacity across its four domestic manufacturing sites.

“SEIA estimates that the incentives provided by this ‘#AmericanEnergyDeal’ could boost US manufacturing capacity to over 50 GW by the end of the decade. Now, thanks to the IRA tax credit provisions for trackers, we can continue to grow our team, solutions and factories to better serve our valued partners,” said Eric Goodwin, director of business development at OMCO Solar. “As a leading US manufacturer, OMCO Solar is passionate about creating jobs and accelerating our country’s transition to clean energy to meet critical climate change goals.”

In the past year, OMCO Solar has shipped 1 GW of its factory-focused Field-Fast, OMCO Choice, and OMCO Origin mounting structures to more than 30 states.

“We are truly a one-stop shop for tracker and fixed-tilt systems for utility scale and distributed generation,” Goodwin said.
