The acquisition is a logical move for Energy Conversion Devices, which has served as a customer of Solar Integrated Technologies for years.

To benefit its European operations and grow its U.S. market, Energy Conversion Devices is paying $11.2 million cash and assuming Solar Integrated Technologies debt. The deal is valued at $16.3 million.
