Unirac solutions meet “Made in America’, “Buy American’, ARRA and Ontario Power Authority FIT and microFIT criteria. More than 90 percent of the companyâ€™s supply chain is US-based. Unirac uses a variety of manufacturing partners around the U.S. and Canada so products may be shipped from a facility close to the installation site.

Unirac, Inc. was founded in 1998 and is based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The company was acquired in May 2010 by Liechtenstein’s Hilti Group, a global construction tool supplier, but continues to operate under the Unirac name and management structure.
Unirac has achieved International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001:2004 certification for Environmental Management Systems (EMS) and ISO 9001:2008 certification for Quality Management Systems (QMS). It is the first solar infrastructure company to secure both certifications.
