Acquisition is consistent with its plans for additional investment in complementary HVAC products and companies
November 18, 2016
The Sterling Group, a middle market private equity firm, has completed the acquisition of PoolPak International LLC. PoolPak is a leading manufacturer of dehumidification systems for large athletic pools, natatoriums in schools and universities, commercial pools and hotel/motel leisure pools.
Ranging from 18- to 140-ton units, the Protocol (NP) Series indoor swimming pool dehumidifiers provide energy-efficient natatorium space heating/cooling and optimum humidity control, while also offering free pool water heating and reheat through heat recovery.
Reducing refrigerant in direct expansion (DX) HVAC system designs is a trend both contractors and consulting engineers are using to distance themselves from the competition. While refrigerant reduction has been fairly common in conventional air conditioning, it’s only now emerging in the category of indoor pool (natatorium) dehumidification.
