Mi Rancho® Announces Passing of Patriarch Robert Berber Jr.

Bay Area Tortilla Company Now in Its Third Berber Generation with Ongoing Commitment to Founders' Legacy of Traditional Methods, Food Purity and Quality.

San Leandro, CA, USA (January 16, 2016) -- Mi Rancho® (http://www.mirancho.com), a Bay Area food innovator in the production and global distribution of tortillas and Mexican foods, today announced the passing of Robert Berber Jr. after losing his battle with cancer. Robert Berber Jr. leaves a legacy as a successful businessman and philanthropist as well as a family company, Mi Rancho, which has become a national brand. Mi Rancho is now managed by Robert's son, Manuel Berber, who has served as president of the company since 1992.

Robert Berber Jr. is responsible for building Mi Rancho into the company it is today, manufacturing more than 1.3 billion tortillas each year. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Robert Berber Jr. moved to the Bay Area where in 1954 he and his father, Robert Berber Sr. purchased an Oakland Mexican grocery and panaderia noted for making delicious corn and flour tortillas and breads. Robert assumed sole ownership of the store in 1974 and through hard work and vision built Mi Rancho into a national tortilla brand that is respected for its quality, consistency and purity of ingredients.

The traditional methods of making tortillas used by Robert Berber Sr. and Robert Berber Jr. are still the foundation for the making of Mi Rancho products. Mi Rancho's corn tortillas are made from whole kernel corn that is carefully cooked and steeped with lime for up to 10 hours. The corn is then stone-ground with lava stones for a unique texture and flavor. Mi Rancho also uses local ingredients grown in California, and it offers organic, non-GMO corn and flour tortillas.

"My father will be sorely missed by the Mi Rancho family and in the community," said Manuel Berber, owner and President of Mi Rancho. "However, we intend to keep his legacy alive by continuing to use the same time-honored methods and whole ingredients we have used for the past 60 years, when my father and grandfather established the family business. We will continue to maintain our commitment to superior quality and exquisite taste as the company passes into the hands of my two sons, the fourth generation of Berbers."

Robert Berber Jr. also was an active participant in the Bay Area community. He served on the Board of Directors for City Center Federal Savings, was active in the Orinda Rotary Club, and delivered food to those in need through Meals on Wheels. He also established a scholarship for underserved families at his alma mater, Cathedral High School in Los Angeles.

The Berber family has requested that those who wish to honor Robert Berber Jr.'s memory do so by making a donation to the John Muir Health Foundation, 1400 Treat Blvd., Walnut Creek, CA 94597 or online: https://www.johnmuirhealth.com/secure/make-a-donation.html.

SolaTrim™ Signs Hybrid Power Supply as First Canadian Distributor

SolaTrim Expands Market Reach for PV Protective Barriers with Calgary-based Value-added Distributor of Specialty Alternative Energy Products.

Sacramento, CA, USA (January 16, 2016) -- SolaTrim™ LLC (http://www.solatrim.com), innovators in protective barriers to beautify and safeguard residential solar systems, today announced that the company has signed a distribution agreement with Hybrid Power Supply (http://www.hybridpowersupply.com) of Calgary, Alberta. With this new distribution agreement, SolaTrim not only expands its market presence into Canada but also opens up new sales opportunities in niche alternative energy applications.

Unlike many residential solar system distributors, Hybrid Power Supply targets specific channels and markets, including off-the-grid power systems, marine solar systems, and RV solar systems. The distributor maintains an intimate catalog and does not offer preconfigured residential solar system modules. Instead, they offer specialty products such as solar batteries, power inverters, controllers, and switches as well as solar panels that can be assembled into custom solar systems. Hybrid Power Supply considers itself a value-added solar distributor, offering product training, support, and warranty servicing to dealers and installers.

"We believe that protection of solar systems is something that's been neglected by the industry for far too long," said Haig Davis, president of Hybrid Power Supply. "We are excited to be bringing SolaTrim to Canada as now we have a product available to Canadian solar installers and homeowners that provides the last vital component in the residential solar installation and what's great is SolaTrim does this in an aesthetically pleasing, easy to fit practical way."

Hybrid Power Supply will be supplying solar installers across Canada with SolaTrim barriers. SolaTrim is an ideal addition to Hybrid Power Supply's catalog of solar charge controllers, inverters, and batteries.

"We are delighted to have found a specialty distributor such as Hybrid Power Supply to help open the Canadian region, and introduce SolaTrim to new integrators serving niche markets," said Bob Smith, co-founder and President of SolaTrim. "Canada is a burgeoning market for solar power, and SolaTrim barriers are ideal for keeping debris and pests from under solar arrays. SolaTrim also helps prevent rooftop snow loading and ice dams by preventing snow from accumulating under solar arrays in winter."

SolaTrim is an all-weather aluminum barrier stiffened by design to resist warping or bending and diamond-stamped to facilitate airflow. The SolaTrim panels come with a peel-and-stick adhesive that attaches permanently to the solar frame and requires no drilling or clips that could negatively affect the system's appearance or the solar module manufacturers' warranty. The adhesive has been tested to withstand extreme weather conditions and will last for the life of the solar system so it will permanently prevent birds and rodents from nesting under the solar array, which can cause damage to the solar systems.

About SolaTrim
SolaTrim LLC is an innovator in providing new solutions to protect and beautify residential solar systems as well as protect the homeowner solar investment for the life of the system. The SolaTrim barrier system adds an attractive border to solar arrays while protecting the system from pests, debris and other environmental threats. Solar integrators across the country are turning to SolaTrim as a permanent solution that will beautify rooftop solar while reducing unnecessary service & warranty calls.

Headquartered in Sacramento, California, SolaTrim is committed to developing affordable, dependable, and attractive made-in-the-USA solar aftermarket products to support America's renewable energy initiatives.
