Het bedrijf is in 2012 door Mathias Muther uit Röns (Vorarlberg/AT) opgericht. Gespecialiseerd in de productie van aerodynamische onderconstructies voor de PV industrie, volgde een snelle groei van het bedrijf. Het bedrijf richtte zich op de productie en verkoop van PV-onderconstructies voor platte daken zonder doorlopende rails. Montageoplossingen voor schuine daken, metalen daken en voor grondopstellingen completeren inmiddels het productportfolio.
Het statische ontwerp en de berekening voor wind- en sneeuwbelasting gebeurt in onze eigen 3D engineering software. In 2016 werd in het eerste bedrijfsgebouw in Satteins geïnvesteerd, waardoor het kantoor geografisch werd samengevoegd met de productie. In het kader van de toegenomen bedrijfsactiviteiten in de VS volgde de oprichting van de eerste vestiging in de VS. Singapore volgde later.
In datzelfde jaar werd ook de eerste spade in de grond gezet voor het nieuwe hoofdgebouw in Satteins waarvan voltooiing volgde in juni 2019. AEROCOMPACT® heeft momenteel meer dan 70 medewerkers in dienst.
