Melink Corporation announced today a spin-off of its solar development business. The new business, operated under the name Melink Solar Development, will be independently owned and operated, and will focus on pre-construction development of large-commercial and utility scale solar photovoltaic arrays. Founding Partners of Melink Solar Development include Jeremy Chapman, Colin Derhammer, and Donna Jones; each of whom have worked with Melink for over ten years in the Solar PV business. Melink Corporation remains dedicated to the solar PV industry by providing the commercial building industry with engineering, procurement, and construction services.
“I’m extremely excited about this new direction, which will allow each of our teams to focus more clearly on the market segments that we respectively serve” said Steve Melink, Chairman and CEO of Melink Corporation. “Now more than ever, our country needs innovative leaders to bring clean energy solutions to life. Implementation of these technologies offers an opportunity to improve our country’s economy, national security, and environment…an opportunity that we can’t allow to escape us. Both Melink Corporation and Melink Solar Development remain steadfast in our dedication to the local communities and future generations that we serve.”
“Jeremy, Colin, and Donna started the development arm of Melink’s solar business, and have been repeatedly praised by our clients for their integrity, creativity, and dedication” said Craig Davis, President of Melink Corporation. “I have no doubt that their leadership in the development space will help continue to advance the solar PV industry. For Melink, this strategic decision allows us to focus our efforts on national account, and institutional building owners. Service excellence and innovation have always been part of our core values at Melink, and this step is yet another demonstration of those.”
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to further grow the Melink brand, and look forward to being an extended part of the Melink family for many years to come” said Jeremy Chapman, founding Partner of Melink Solar Development. “This step allows Melink Solar Development to accelerate our growth even further, which is increasingly important given the challenge that climate change presents to us all. We are excited to be a part of the solution, and contribute meaningful change to all of the communities that we serve.”
