HOW IT ALL BEGAN
AEROCOMPACT GROUP was born from an idea in the mind of our founder Mathias Muther: He designed an innovative mounting system for solar panels in which the panel itself serves as a structural element. This eliminates the need for large-scale aluminum or steel rails to fix the panels; installers only need to bridge the gap between one module and the next. Advantages: The installation is easier, the material cost is cut by a third, it saves labor time and cost, and it provides a static load advantage for the roofs.
AEROCOMPACT is built on a combination of engineering expertise, digital tools, and business processes. While turning our revolutionary mounting system concept into reality, we also developed a proprietary design tool, AEROTOOL, that provides project drawings to reflect the latest wind tunnel tests and code requirements for solar modules. Today, AEROTOOL is one of the world’s leading design tools in this market segment.
THE ROAD TO GLOBAL SUCCESS
In 2014, Mathias Muther founded similar companies in Austria and the USA, and within a year, AEROCOMAPCT expanded on the Asian market. Under Muther's leadership, and after a few short years, we established ourselves to become a driver of the solar tech industry in a highly dynamic market environment. From 2018 to 2021, sales tripled to double-digit millions, and our international team continues to expand steadily, particularly in software development, sales, production, and R&D.
We currently operate 14 production locations and sales outlets around the globe, with our main offices located in Austria, the USA, and India. Our products have been installed in over 50 countries worldwide. We are among the market leaders in Austria and selected regional markets.
In 2018, AEROCOMPACT created a Management Board to accelerate our global growth opportunities, and it has been leading the company ever since. The holding company was re-registered, and the GmbH (Limited Liability Company) became an AG (Stock Corporation) in 2022. Mathias Muther stepped down from the Management Board and took on the position of Chairman of the Supervisory Board. The holding company is developing strategic growth initiatives to broaden market access by expanding the business model and developing new customer groups.
We are always looking for new team members who share the same passion for a sustainable future. If you are interested in a long-term cooperation with our company, we are looking forward to your application!
