THE SOLAR GROUP
Solar Group Inc. was established in 1957 as a hardware manufacturing company. Over the years, the company purchased several small businesses and ultimately focused on manufacturing mailboxes. In 1998, the company was acquired by Gibraltar Industries, a leading manufacturer, processor and distributor of metals and other engineered materials headquartered in Buffalo, New York.
Most Gibraltar mailboxes and accessories are made with pride at the Solar Group Inc. headquarters and manufacturing facility in Taylorsville, Mississippi. These dedicated employees have an average tenure of more than 18 years of service with us, so they know the mailbox business inside and out. Half of our employees have worked at Solar Group for at least 20 years, while more than 75 percent have worked here for 10 years or more.
Gibraltar Industries is a leading manufacturer and distributor of building products for industrial, infrastructure, residential housing and renewable energy markets. With a four-pillar strategy focused on operational improvement, product innovation, acquisitions and portfolio management, Gibraltar’s mission is to drive best-in-class performance. Gibraltar serves customers primarily throughout North America, and to a lesser extent Asia. Comprehensive information about Gibraltar Industries can be found on its website at www.gibraltar1.com.
At Gibraltar, we recognize the collective strength of our employees drives our success, in good times and in more challenging times.
Our team came together in an extraordinary way over the last several months and created a new level of community, culture and family. Across our diverse set of companies, our team of over 2,500 employees stepped up to help each other, our families, and our communities.
Gibraltar companies supplied more than 3.3 million meals to local food banks and created and distributed 200,000 masks and 5,600 face shields to our employees, their families, first responders and those in need on our communities.
This is what sets us apart. This is what makes us stronger. This is what makes us all #GibraltarProud
