Arborview Capital announces investment in Alpen

Arborview Capital announced today that it has completed an investment in Alpen High Performance Products, Inc. (“Alpen”), a leading US developer and manufacturer of high efficiency windows, doors and insulated glass products

Alpen High Performance Products, based near Boulder, CO, USA, is a leading designer and manufacturer of high efficiency windows, doors and commercial glass. The Company draws on a 30-year history of industry leadership and innovation in high performance window and glass manufacturing to produce a suite of products which are amongst the most energy efficient available. Alpen works closely with the sustainability and energy efficiency building community, including Passive House and Net Zero, to continually develop enhancements responsive to the needs of customers seeking greater energy efficiency.

The high-performance window and glass market is a small but rapidly growing segment of the 25 billion USD window market in the USA. Alpen is a recognized leader in the ultra-high performance window and glass segment which is experiencing rapid growth driven by the growing popularity of Net-Zero buildings, passive house standards and modular residential construction. Also driving growth in ultra-high performance windows and glass are increasingly stringent local building codes focused on improved energy efficiency and greater focus on interior building comfort and sound attenuation. Similarly, demand for cost-effective solutions to enhancing the efficiency of existing buildings through improved window performance is major area of expected growth.

“The Arborview partnership will allow Alpen to accelerate our growth and capitalize on the compelling growth opportunities in our core markets,” said Alpen’s CEO, Brad Begin. “Arborview provides capital, market knowledge and expertise to help us better serve our existing markets and broaden the overall market for our products. In addition, their experience investing in the efficient building product market enables them to take a highly collaborative approach to helping us manage the opportunities and challenges of scaling our business.”

Arborview Capital was founded in 2008 to invest in high growth companies that are helping to build a cleaner, more sustainable economy and that deliver top tier financial returns for investors. The Firm’s portfolio companies are emerging leaders in the energy efficiency, resource efficiency and sustainability sectors.

“For over a decade, Alpen has been a leader in delivering innovative high efficiency and high performance windows and glass to residential and commercial building owners,” said Joe Lipscomb, Partner of Arborview. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Brad Begin and the rest of the Alpen family to continue building on this legacy of innovation and expertise. Efficient building products are a key area of focus for Arborview as we continue building a diversified portfolio of clean energy investments.”
