Innovation

Unirac brings a culture of innovation to the solar industry.

Unirac is the leading innovator in mounting and racking systems from both a product and a process standpoint. For commercial installers, the Unirac Difference it palpable. It means accurate, on-time, and on-budget projects.

  • Outside-the-box thinking on the product side
  • Operational best practices on the process side
  • The industry’s most innovative tools, training and support

Our culture of innovation informs everything we do. We fuel product innovation by bringing together a multi-disciplinary technical team tasked with thinking outside the box to create the best possible solutions. We also drive process innovation through a Lean-Sigma operations approach centered on eliminating unnecessary steps, reducing the number of times you take any step, and improving the efficiency of every step in the process.

Reducing the friction of business interactions.

And we innovate on the service and tools side as well by making it frictionless to do business with Unirac, on-site, online or on the phone. Unirac’s operations management is passionate about efficiency, market services and converting materials and labor into the highest-quality goods. Want proof? Unirac has achieved ISO 9001 certification.

Unirac’s seasoned executive team hails from market spaces where leaders are the ones who continuously innovate on both the product and process side, who provide world-class service, and who give customers and channel partners the cutting-edge tools and comprehensive training they need to be successful.

Putting Lean-Sigma principles into practice every day

Lean and Six Sigma are broadly accepted as the most effective business improvement tools for manufacturers like Unirac. Lean-Sigma represents the integration of these two methods, and it dramatically reduces both lead-time and product variation. Richard Welch, Unirac’s COO, holds a Six Sigma Master Black Belt certification and is an award-winning expert on lean manufacturing.

At Unirac, we’re constantly striving to identify and remove the causes of waste and defects to minimize the variables in our manufacturing and product delivery processes. Fundamentally, we owe it to our customers to continually improve our processes. And, we owe it to our partners to help them grow their businesses as profitably as possible.

But don’t take our word for it. For three years running, Unirac has earned awards for both its products and its process innovations from Managing Automation magazine. That kind of objective third-party validation lets you know that effective operations management is a core competence here at Unirac.

Unirac’s focus on our requirements and processes led to a significant decrease in installation time at a value incomparable to competitive offerings.
