Talking SPI 2018 with HellermanTyton

Nick Korth | HellermanTyton

Tell us about your company.

HellermannTyton is a global manufacturer in many market segments including heavy duty truck, automotive, electrical and wind and solar. We have taken our expertise acquired in these adjacent markets and used it to create world-class solar wire management, protection and identification products.


Your company will be exhibiting at SPI 2018, what is it that makes this an important event for your company?

SPI is the ideal place to meet existing customers and create new ones. It is also a great place to get a read on the market not only from a product standpoint but also to see policy trends.


Highlight 2 or 3 products you will be showcasing at the event?

This year, HellermannTyton is doubling down in our focus on wire management with single axis trackers. As a company that regularly visits job sites, products that streamline installation and lower installation costs are still top-of-mind for folks out in the field. With our two newest solar fasteners – Button Mount with Cable Tie and Locking Clamp – we’ve considered the elements we have witnessed out in the field and applied them to create new and innovative designs.

SPI 2018 has many educational sessions & demo’s, is your company involved in any of them this year?  

We have two poster presentations this year focusing on wire management materials and the NEC 2017 code. We have recently added Cari Helberg to our team. Cari comes to us from the asset management side of the solar business and brings a wealth of knowledge to our team, including having been an electrical inspector and a journeyman electrician in a past life. Stop by our booth to chat with the most knowledgeable team in the business!


When you get a chance to walk the exhibit hall floor yourself, what is it you will be most interested to see?  Any educational sessions you plan on attending?

Meetings often keep me quite busy at SPI, but I like to sneak away to see what the racking and module companies are up to. It seems that a lot of the innovation going on right now in the industry is in those two segments, and it’s my job to keep up on those trends.


When you book a booth for a tradeshow like this what are your expectations and what does your company hope to accomplish at the event?

Inevitably, this is an investment in growing our brand and meeting new people.


A tradeshow of this magnitude is extremely busy and stressful for the staff of exhibiting companies.  Any fun things or places your team can suggest in Anaheim to help unwind?

There are some fantastic breweries in and around the Anaheim area; nothing like winding down over a nice craft beer!

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
