The company was founded in 2014 by Mathias Muther. Specialized in the production of aerodynamic substructures for the photovoltaic industry, the company grew rapidly. The company focused on the manufacture and sale of PV racking for flat roofs without direct connection and the Aerotool design software, which is available online free of charge for every customer. Fastening solutions for pitched roofs or ground-mounted systems now round off the product portfolio.
All products are tested according to the highest industry standards and the static design as well as the wind and snow load calculation is carried out for each individual project in Aerotool, the company's own online 3D engineering software. The in-house development team constantly improves the products and also puts a strong focus on new developments and innovations. All products have their own patents and are design protected.
AEROCOMPACT has 14 locations around the globe with headquarters in Austria, USA and India.
AEROCOMPACT's mission is to provide intelligent racking solutions to enable international customers to safely install solar systems.
