Schletter Inc., a provider of solar mounting systems, says it plans to open a customer-service facility in Hartford, Conn. The new location will house technical sales personnel, include a full showroom and training facility, and stock commonly used solar mounting components for distribution.
According to Schletter, the new facility will facilitate communication with the company's customers by making more local representatives available. Schletter's planned training facility will offer free NABCEP-certified continuing education courses to its customers and allow for hands-on product installation demonstrations, the company adds.
The new location will be the third Schletter facility in North America. Schletter's Windsor, Ontario, location also offers manufacturing capabilities for the complete solar mounting product line, technical sales, design and engineering and customer training functions. The company's U.S. headquarters and manufacturing facility are located in Tucson, Ariz.
