Gibraltar Industries is bulking up its solar energy equipment business.
The Hamburg-based building products manufacturer, which already makes racking systems for solar energy installations, has acquired SolarBOS, a California company that makes electrical balance-of-systems products for solar energy systems.
The terms of the deal were not disclosed. SolarBOS had $13.5 million in sales over the past 12 months. The acquisition is expected to add to Gibraltar's profits immediately, the company said Thursday.
