Schletter Inc. is North America’s leading provider of solar mounting systems for utility-scale, large commercial, residential and carport projects. The company is an independent subsidiary of Schletter Group, a German-based manufacturer, which serves as the largest provider of solar mounting systems in Europe. With more than 1,500 employees worldwide, Schletter has offices in the U.S., Canada, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, South Korea and Spain.
In 2012, Schletter moved its U.S. headquarters from Tucson, Arizona to Shelby, North Carolina, where it now employs about 200 people. The company selected Cleveland County for its rich manufacturing history, robust transportation infrastructure and proximity to customers along the East Coast, among other benefits.
Schletter recently launch its new G-Max™ Ground Mount System that is perfect for utility-scale and large commercial projects. Schletter will have installed the new innovative system in more than 700 MW by the end of the year.
Additionally, Schletter provided the solar mounting systems for Michigan State University’s (MSU) solar carport initiative, which will transform five parking lots into solar power generators. When construction is complete, the parking lots will represent the largest solar carport system in the U.S. generating 15,000 megawatt-hours of electricity annually for MSU and saving them $10 million in electricity costs over the next 25 years.
Schletter is committed to maintaining an open and empowering work environment with a focus on work-life balance, ongoing training and building a great company culture. As a leader in the relatively young and fast-growing solar industry, Schletter is always looking for engaged, interested individuals to join their growing team. Part-time employees who exhibit drive and positive qualities are frequently onboarded as full-time staff and are encouraged to continue to grow at the company through on-the-job training and other growth opportunities.
