Community representatives joined company leaders and employees on October 29, 2015, to celebrate the official opening of Sun Valley Solar Solutions' stunning new headquarters at 3225 N. Colorado Street in Chandler.
Company co-founders Russ Patzer, CEO, and Joe Messner, CTO, marked the milestone with a formal ribbon cutting where Patzer offered his thoughts about the fully-renovated facility and rapid growth of the company he co-founded just seven years ago.
“In 2014 alone, our revenue increased by more than 50 percent, and for 2015 we’re conservatively forecasting more than a 60 percent increase over last year,” Patzer explained. “This building provides us with the critical infrastructure to address the increasing demand for our clean, affordable energy solutions while at the same time allowing us to streamline operations by bringing our commercial and residential divisions together under one roof.”
Originally constructed in 1996, the stand-alone facility was purchased by Sun Valley Solar Solutions in February 2015. The building then began an extensive renovation in preparation for a phased move-in throughout the summer.
The newly christened Sun Valley Solar Solutions headquarters offers more than 9,000-square-feet of stunning new office and showroom space, a 15,000-square-foot warehouse facility with a five-bay shipping/receiving dock, and more than an acre of fenced yard to house the company’s rapidly-expanding 32-vehicle fleet.
Terri Kimble, Chandler Chamber of Commerce CEO/President said, “Sun Valley Solar Solutions has been supportive of the Chandler business collective and residential community since 2006. We are so proud to hold this ribbon cutting in commemoration of their growth and expansion. This wonderful facility is truly a gage of their success.”
Sun Valley Solar Solutions currently has more than 100 full and part-time employees at their Chandler headquarters—up from 80 at the end of 2014. The company expects to fill an additional 20-30 full time positions in 2016. Current full time job opportunities include solar installers, designers, project managers, and sales reps.
