Esdec Org Chart



The Esdec Solar Group was founded as Esdec in 2004 by two Dutch solar installers who recognized the need for high-quality rooftop mounting hardware. Over the next 10 years, Esdec developed their hardware with their ClickFit residential racking system followed by the commercial & industrial FlatFix ballasted system. Throughout the decade, Esdec grew to one of the largest installers in the Netherlands.

In 2015 Stijn Vos was named as CEO and Esdec expanded for the first time out of the Netherlands to other European countries, including Germany, France, and Belgium.


In 2018, the Esdec Solar Group was formed with Gilde Buy Out acquiring a majority stake in the company. This paved the way for further expansion across Europe to Spain, Portugal, and Scandinavian countries. The company entered the North American market for the first time with the acquisition of EcoFasten. In 2019, Esdec Solar Group purchased leading North American companies IronRidge and Quick Mount PV, and then continued to solidify itself as a market leader with the acquisition of leading commercial and industrial providers PanelClaw and Solar Construct in 2020.

In 2020, Esdec Solar Group also entered the fast-growing Asian market by re-engineering their popular European systems. Leading the company’s Asian expansion is Esdec India, now operating PAN India. In 2021 Esdec Solar Group acquired Netherlands based rooftop racking systems manufacturer Solar Stell, and in 2022 Solar Construct merged with Solar Stell to form Blubase.

On December 1st of 2022 Blackstone and Rivean Capital (formerly Gilde) acquired Esdec Solar Group. The company has continued to grow with the acquisition of Valencia, Spain based Sunfer Energy in January of 2023.
