Liebert Corp., a manufacturer of computer room air conditioning systems, has recognized Hill York as its South Florida and Caribbean service provider.

Through the acquisition of Michael Cullota and his company, American HVAC&R, Hill York said it is now the largest Liebert Network Solutions Partner in the state of Florida.

Liebert is headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, and is represented in southeast Florida by Air & Power Solutions, owned and managed by Dale Keitz.

Chip Lafferty, owner and CEO of Hill York, said, “This most recent and important acquisition continues to accomplish one of our corporate goals - to extend market share by acquiring, or establishing strategic alliances with, other best-of-class companies. We enhanced Hill York’s stronghold on serving and maintaining mission-critical facilities. With the growth in technology companies in Florida and the Caribbean, Hill York is now in an even stronger position to serve all the air conditioning needs of our diverse client base.”

Hill York provides air conditioning and energy services, which include energy management, design/build, maintenance, retrofit/equipment replacement, service and repairs, and new construction to builders, developers, general contractors, facility managers, and building owners.
