The Goldbeck Solar Group has acquired the North American PV-EPC enterprise unit of GP Joule Group and is now the only shareholder of the 2 North American firms: GP Joule PV Canada Corp. and GP Joule PV USA Inc. With this acquisition, GOLDBECK SOLAR is strengthening its place within the Americas, having current operations in Chile and Mexico.

The buy consists of the acquisition of all the GP Joule EPC NA crew in addition to using the native model for a restricted interval.

“Our new local team and their expertise are the basis for this strategic step. They understand the culture and the market specifics,” says Joachim Goldbeck, CEO of Goldbeck Solar Group. “With our new colleagues, we have a strong foundation to master the opportunities and challenges of the North American market. The cultural fit of the companies was a fundamental criterion, and we are now looking forward to growing the business together in Canada and the USA.”

“This comes at a perfect time,” states David Pichard, CEO of GP Joule EPC NA. “Over the last 10 years, we have grown exponentially a team delivering world class assets in the utility scale market. Becoming part of the Goldbeck Solar family not only brings immediate synergies in systems and supply chain but also accelerates our expansion in operations and maintenance services to continue providing the best value to our clients”.

“We are convinced that we have found the right partner and buyer for our companies in North America in Goldbeck Solar,” provides Ove Petersen, co-founder and CEO of GP Joule. “We are placing our EPC business in Canada and the USA, which has developed excellently in recent years, in good hands and can focus even more strongly on our growth in Germany and Europe.”
