Boots on the Roof rings in the new year with a new Partnership

Unirac! Wow these guys are tough! Not only are they tough… they are fast too. Boots on the Roof is excited to announce our partnership with Unirac, and the addition of their ISYS Ground Mount  to our Mega Lab! Lots of our students have requested training on larger ground mounts, which is one reason we are happy to be incorporating this system into our classes. This system is said to be one of the fastest systems to install with the least amount of labor. Unirac claims an installation time of more than 10 modules per man-hour, making it a great option to teach our commercial students!

Why do we like Unirac for our students? Ground mount systems are a growing part of solar in North America. Unirac is always looking for ways to improve the design of their products, with the intention of reducing installation time.  For this reason, the ISYS Ground Mount is an ideal option for large scale commercial projects that we are proud to offer as an option to our students. Thank you Unirac!

CT Fertility Makes USA Surrogacy More Affordable and Accessible Through Global Partnership Network

Bridgeport, CT (PRWEB) November 30, 2011

International patients who need the help of an American surrogate to become parents are often forced to deal not only with the potentially high costs involved, but also prolonged periods of stay in the USA. This is especially true for couples that do not use an American egg donor, when the intended mother needs to start a medication and monitoring regime several weeks before the IVF procedure. But by announcing new partnerships with reputable clinics around the world, CT Fertility has been increasingly able to allow more clients to save substantial time, money and stress.

?Surrogacy is a complex process that require multiple well-synchronized preparatory steps,? says Dr. Doyle, the clinic?s medical director, ?which forces most clinics to insist on doing everything under one roof. While this serves local clients well, it makes the process daunting and cost-prohibitive to prospective parents who come here from regions where top rated reproductive clinic do not exist or from most European countries, where surrogacy or egg donation are severely limited or restricted.? To make the treatment more accessible and affordable, CT Fertility?s staff worked hard over the last few years to streamline the process so that many more CT Fertility clients, both Americans and from around the world, can now work with doctors in their communities for all the preliminary screening and monitoring work, and thereby reduce the amount of time they need to spend away from home, with the related expenses and stress of traveling to the United States.

While such cooperation is not uncommon in the USA, it is much more challenging to delegate so much of the process to clinics that operate in different time zones, languages, and regulatory environments. To that end CT Fertility has been developing a growing network of top quality doctors, labs and support service professionals it selected in primary US and international destinations. Cooperation started about five years ago with clinics in Sweden and Israel, and has expanded since to countries like Ireland, the UK, Spain and Germany. These clinics follow CT Fertility?s protocols to prescribe medications, conduct screening and genetic blood tests, physical exams, and ultrasound monitoring of both male and female patients.

The benefits to prospective parents are numerous. A majority of the male clients now preform semen analysis, blood and genetic screening in their own countries, saving the cost and time of traveling to the USA for this purpose, and often having much of the medical cost covered by their national health insurance. When a prospective mother is using her own eggs, the savings are even larger. ?The care I received locally for the scans, monitoring, and related services made the experience very efficient,? recounts an Irish patient. ?I am very pleased with what we achieved so far, and we intend to continue increase the number of such fruitful cooperation arrangements,? said Dr. Doyle. ?Overall dozens of Europeans and other CT Fertility clients are now able to avoid needless stress and separation from their families, and save thousands of dollars by shortening the stay in the USA and taking advantage of their own national health insurance to cover the costs of medications, lab and medical fees.?

Arborview Capital Announces the Acquisition of Drexel Metals in Partnership with Management

Chevy Chase, MD (Vocus/PRWEB) February 22, 2011

Arborview Capital announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Drexel Metals Inc., a provider of energy efficient standing seam metal roofing systems, in partnership with the Company’s management. As a result of the financing, Karl Khoury and Joseph Lipscomb of Arborview Capital will join Drexel Metals’ Board of Directors.

“The Arborview partnership allows Drexel Metals to continue rolling out our comprehensive, industry-leading metal roofing solution,” said Rob Waite, CEO of Drexel Metals. “Our solution enables roofing contractors and distributors to achieve higher profit margins while providing a superior quality Drexel Metals branded roof that is weather resistant, energy efficient, warranty protected and easy to install. As one of the most durable and cost effective roofing alternatives, the Drexel Metals system is transforming the expanding market for standing seam metal roofing,” said Waite.

With buildings accounting for more than one-third of global energy consumption, improving building energy efficiency is a proven and cost-effective way to reduce energy consumption. A building’s shell, which includes the roof, represents over 60% of a building’s potential energy efficiency savings. Metal roofing has compelling advantages that are driving market demand including increased energy efficiency (20 – 30% more efficient than asphalt shingles), superior durability (40+ year life versus 20 for asphalt), and low maintenance costs. Because it qualifies for LEED, Energy Star and Federal Energy Efficiency Tax Credits, standing seam metal roofing is nationally recognized as a leading energy efficiency product.

“As the proven innovation leader in the standing seam metal roofing market, Drexel Metals will now have the financial strength to expand in both domestic and international markets and to pursue select strategic investments,” said Karl Khoury of Arborview. “Their experience and customer-centric approach has enabled the Company to be a disruptive force in the industry. With standing seam metal roofing emerging as the platform of choice for roof-mounted solar, Arborview looks forward to helping Drexel Metals expand its presence in the solar market, as well.”

“Energy efficiency is a key area of focus for our firm as we continue to build a diversified portfolio of clean energy investments,” said Karl Khoury of Arborview. “Drexel Metals fits squarely into Arborview’s risk-adjusted growth equity investment strategy. We seek to invest in established businesses that have strong leadership and superior organic growth potential. We look forward to working with Rob Waite and Company President Brian Partyka to continue building upon the Company’s track record of success.”
