Nextracker-Unimacts Establish Las Vegas, Nevada, Steel Components Facility

Nextracker, a global market leader of solar tracker and software solutions, and Unimacts, a leading provider of industrial manufacturing and supply chain solutions, established Nextracker-dedicated manufacturing operations in Las Vegas, Nevada. The project is expected to create more than 200 jobs by 2024.

The new facility, owned and operated by Unimacts, will produce critical steel components exclusively for Nextracker used in ground-mount solar power generation plants to primarily serve projects in Nevada and southwestern states.

“By partnering with Unimacts on this new production line, we’re bringing back American manufacturing jobs and building out America’s energy infrastructure to enhance energy security and de-risk the supply chain,” said Dan Shugar, founder and CEO of Nextracker. “This plant will support our customers with quick shipping and American-made products.”

Nextracker has continued to invest in solar manufacturing building out more than 25 GW of annual domestic solar tracker capacity with new dedicated production lines announced in Texas, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Tennessee and now, in Nevada.

“Unimacts is excited that our partnership with Nextracker will create new jobs and increase the amount of solar we can produce here in the US,” noted Matt Arnold, CEO of Unimacts. “With the Nextracker dedicated line, we will be supporting gigawatts of utility-scale projects annually, powering homes and businesses across the Southwest and even as far east as Indiana and Kentucky.”
