Roofing systems manufacturer acquires solar specialist

Viridian Solar, the Cambridge-based roof-integrated solar specialist, continues to be acquired by Burton-headquartered roofing systems manufacturer, Marley.

The acquisition builds upon an industrial partnership between the two companies announced in 2021, that saw Viridian Solar’s BIPV added to Marley’s range of roofing products to accomplish a comprehensive roof system offer for that UK building industry.

The deal will see Viridian continue to operate as a standalone entity, retaining its existing management team and continuing to support its customers directly.

Stuart Elmes, CEO of Viridian Solar, said: “The final eighteen years have just flown by and, whilst we are proud of what we have achieved together, our eyes remain firmly on the future. We are looking forward to dealing with our new colleagues at Marley to open an exciting new chapter within the development of Viridian Solar.

“Our ambitious growth plans will be supported by the resources and reputation of being part of one of the biggest and most respected names within the roofing sector, with the backing of Inflexion Private Equity Partners, who manage assets of £5.4bn globally.”

David Speakman, CEO of Marley, added: “The acquisition brings together two complementary companies, both of which are influential players, with highly regarded reputations in the construction market.

“Viridian’s strong relationship with housing developers and solar distributors is complemented by Marley’s commercial reach into social housing using one of roofing installers.”
