MINNEAPOLIS - Greenheck Fan Corp., a leading manufacturer and supplier of air movement and control equipment, has announced the formation of a new entity, Unison Comfort Technologies. According to Greenheck, the primary focus of this entity will be the manufacture and sale of products and systems for the non-residential equipment sector of the HVAC market, including custom air handlers, value-added packaged rooftop units, and heating/cooling coils. In addition, Unison Comfort Technologies will have a systems and services group that provides enhanced customer support. The company is headquartered in Minneapolis. Jay Althof has been named president.
Althof, a 25-year veteran of the HVAC industry, joined Greenheck in 2005 as vice president of the company’s Outdoor Air Products division. Previously, he held a series of positions at Trane over a 20-year period, concluding as vice president of its Global Controls and Contracting business.
According to Althof, Unison Comfort Technologies will operate independently from Greenheck with its own sales representatives and manufacturing operations. He said, “While owned by Greenheck, Unison Comfort Technologies is being formed to grow in market segments where Greenheck has had limited market presence. Initially, we will focus on the U.S. market, but plan to expand internationally in the coming years.”
Unison Comfort Technologies will market three established brands previously supported by Greenheck. These brands include: Innovent, a provider of custom air handling systems; Valent, a provider of value-added packaged rooftop units; and Precision Coils, a provider of heating and cooling coils. Future plans include the addition of new products under each brand as well as new brands over time.
