SunTrac and Atlas Controls Announce Joint OEM Program

July 11, 2016


SunTrac Solar Manufacturing (SunTrac) and Virginia-based Atlas Controls announced a new Joint OEM Program. After a thorough engineering and technology review, Atlas selected SunTrac as a manufacturing and product partner. Atlas will be integrating SunTrac’s Solar Thermal SmartPanels into their Groundhog Geothermal Heat Pump Systems and Atlas Solar Heat Pump Systems as a standard OEM feature. SunTrac has agreed to provide Atlas Controls access to SunTrac technology, products, engineering and technical support, and will also private-label the SunTrac SmartPanel Systems under the Atlas Controls brand for sales and distribution in the US market. This opportunity provides Atlas Controls access to a new market segment (solar cooling and heating) with SunTrac, the technology leader in the field.

Rich Cooley, CEO of SunTrac, stated “We are pleased that Atlas Controls has selected SunTrac as a product and technology partner. Rob Gault and the Atlas Team are developing and distributing cutting edge geothermal heat pump technology. With their OEM integration of SunTrac SmartPanels into their Ground Hog GeoThermal Heat Pump Systems and Atlas Solar Heat Pumps as an additional renewable energy source, we think they have an absolute home run on their hands!  We believe our industry-changing technology combined with their proprietary geothermal products gives both organizations a powerful business advantage. We will accomplish great things together as we continue changing the way the world cools!”

Rob Gault, President of Atlas Controls, echoed Mr. Cooley’s comments: “Our team is highly impressed with SunTrac and their incredible technology. We believe SunTrac provides an amazing contribution and advancement to our Ground Hog Geothermal Hybrid Heat Pump technology. The SunTrac panel systems enhance and turbo charge the efficiency of heat pump systems in general, but especially our new Ground Hog Triple Source Geothermal Heat Pump Technology, which utilizes the Air, the Ground and now the Sun! We are excited to offer this new Triple Source system featuring SunTrac technology, it is definitely an industry first.”
