Solar energy. An unlimited ressource. A dependable technology. A solution for the future, now at Master

Boucherville, September 28th, 2009 – Concerned about offering our customer base an increasingly large variety of products relying on renewable energy resources, The Master Group is proud to announce the acquisition of three important lines of solar energy products for distribution throughout its network.


In the air heating department, Master is now associated with Luba Solar and Grammer Solar, two names with a solid reputation in the industry. Marketed under the the name "Plug & Save", the Luba Solar air preheating system represents the optimal solution for situations where solar roof mounting is the best option. Simple, robust and light, flexible and easy to install, ideal for air-based heat pump systems.

For its part, the Grammer high temperature solar collector, developed in Germany, is used for preheating and heating of air. This collector, designed for commercial or residential applications, is the most efficient in its category as it can heat air temperature up to 60°C above ambient temperature. When it comes to thermal heating, Master has partnered with Heliodyne, a California based company which made its mark over the past 30 years due to their continued focus on their technology and the dependability of their products. Installers will be delighted with the ease and rapidity of installation and its many features such as online monitoring.

"We are proud to position ourselves, thanks to the acquisition of these three brands, as the sole distributor of solar air and water heating systems in all of Eastern Canada", notes Michel Ringuet, CEO of The Master Group. "Even though solar energy isn’t a new technology, it has been refined over the years to offer most effective performances. The key relies on the accuracy of each system’s performance data: which is how a return on the investment is garanteed and we have all the required resources & equipment in order to reach the expected results. These products, eligible to government grants, are an ideal addition to our existing product lines, such as our geothermal line."
