The history of novotegra

While BayWa r.e. Solar Energy Systems GmbH was initially still selling purchased mounting elements, the need for a mounting system tailored to current market requirements became increasingly clear. Product developer Martin Schäfer set about developing a simpler and more flexible mounting solution, revolutionising the previous practice of roof hooks welded to the base profile.

The first novotegra prototype was developed by us in 2006 and manufactured by hand in a forge in Stuttgart. Even 18 years later, the product is still unique on the market.

The result was a tried-and-tested solution: the screw-in roof hook in combination with the basic profile went into series production and thus onto the market. While the roof hook was initially produced pragmatically with the help of a hydraulic log splitter at a small Swabian company, state-of-the-art machines now take over production.



Planning the PV installation was initially very complex: Simple dimensioning diagrams were used to determine the permissible roof hook spacing, and the load-bearing capacity of the roof hook was determined in a custom-built test rig. In 2007, the precursor to today's Solar-Planit planning tool was created to enable solar projects to be planned down to the last detail. 

A big step was taken in 2021: novotegra GmbH was spun off as an independent company. 20 years of combined experience were now under one roof! Among other things, this focussing enabled shorter development times and increased and even better customer support. Michael Harre and Thomas Pfaff became managing directors of novotegra GmbH. 

With Michael Harre's move to the management of our sister company BayWa r.e. Solar Energy Systems, Stefan Krokowski took over his position on 1 June 2023. Since then, Stefan has been responsible for the commercial areas of marketing, sales and product management at novotegra GmbH. Thomas Pfaff remains Managing Director for the technical areas.  

Due to the rapid growth, space in both the warehouse and the rented office building became scarce. This was remedied by the new novotegra warehouse with 11,625 square metres of space, which was occupied in April 2023, and the state-of-the-art office building, which was occupied in July. The latter, with a floor area of 2,700 square metres, was built using sustainable construction methods. The warehouse and office building are designed as energy-plus buildings, i.e. they produce more energy than they consume.
