Supplier Snapshot: Fronius

Fronius was founded in 1945 in Pettenbach, Austria, starting out as a manufacturer of battery chargers and welding transformers. Today, the family-owned company, with its noteworthy history, is a world leader in controlling and monitoring energy across three divisions: Welding, Battery Charging Systems, and Solar Electronics.

Since 1992 Fronius has also been involved in photovoltaics (PV) and producing batteries as well as some of the most advanced grid-connected and hybrid solar inverters in the world.

Designed and manufactured in Austria, Fronius has won several awards for its product innovation and quality. Especially the grid-connected Fronius Galvo and the hybrid Fronius Symo inverters have received prizes for functionality, ecology and as ‘Best Products.’

Fronius is a member of the WWF Climate group and engages in many sustainability projects, for example obtaining all of its electricity from renewable sources.

The Fronius network spans the globe, serving the Australian market through a subsidiary in Melbourne. Since 2010 a local warehouse with technical support, a repair center, and a sales organization ensure premium quality and reliability for Australian customers by combining global experience with strong local support.

Going with a Fronius inverter gives you access to the Fronius DATCOM monitoring system to keep track of your solar PV system’s performance.

All Fronius inverters are backed by a five-year manufacturer’s warranty, with an option to extend to a ten, 15 or 20-year period.
