Solar Innovations Inc's Corporate Office and Manufacturing Facility

Our History

Solar Innovations, Inc. can trace its history back to the early 1950’s, when Everlite Greenhouses was founded. Everlite was purchased in the 1980’s for its dealer network by an existing sunroom manufacturer in Maryland.

The manufacturer took over the Everlite name and began to distribute replacement parts for the original company, but limited its manufacturing to a new sunroom product, and the development of a Mahogany interior/aluminum exterior conservatory. Everlite continued to produce sunrooms through the 1980’s and eventually sold its equipment and designs to several entities which began manufacturing sunrooms.

One of these entities moved its operations to York, PA, and proceeded to manufacture wood and aluminum products. Greg Header was hired by the company as a consultant in 1997. The company underwent a re-organization and on April 15, 1998, Solar Innovations, Inc. was formed. At that time Greg Header became the President and Darren Coder was named Vice President.

Solar Innovations, Inc. has succeeded by listening to its customers and delivering a complete line of high performance structures and accessories including doors, windows, ridge vents, and more. Solar now resides in a state-of-the art 225,000 sq. ft. corporate office and manufacturing facility that is located in Pine Grove, PA, and employs over 120 team members.

Vertical Integration

Solar tries to produce as many components as possible, within our manufacturing facility; to provide greater control over lead times. For example, if a customer’s deadline requires a door two weeks earlier, we do not need to wait for hardware. The same principles can be applied to testing. If a Florida Impact test requires changes to our product, we are able to source the parts or create new ones within a short period of time and find a solution.

By producing as much as possible in-house, instead of purchasing parts from outside vendors at a marked up price, Solar Innovations, Inc. is able to better control our prices. Superior technical support can also be offered on our products because it is provided directly from the individual that created or assembled them. If you have a question, we can provide the answer.
