DiversiTech Acquires Quick-Sling LLC
The Quick-Sling line makes installation safer, quicker, and more affordable
ATLANTA — DiversiTech Corp., a leading manufacturer and supplier of HVACR parts and accessories, announced that it has purchased Quick-Sling LLC., a manufacturer of mounting products for residential, commercial, and industrial HVAC equipment. DiversiTech said the acquisition provides wholesalers and contractors with greater accessibility to a suite of products that makes installation of air handlers and furnaces quicker, more affordable, more reliable, and safer.
“Quick-Sling and its approach to serving the HVAC community perfectly matches our own,” said DiversiTech CEO Jim Prescott. “Both organizations are driven by providing best-in-class products that can simplify and add profitability to both the wholesaler and contractor. With this new partnership, DiversiTech adds another industry leading product group to DiversiTech’s broad consolidated offering in an effort to better serve our customers.”
“We are thrilled to join the DiversiTech family,” said Bill Crowley, Quick-Sling founder and CEO. “DiversiTech’s reputation and distribution advantages will enable Quick-Sling products to reach a wider range of wholesale customers and contractors, which can provide multiple advantages, not the least of which is to help them grow their businesses.”
Quick-Sling, founded in 2011 and based in Massachusetts, simplifies the way furnaces, air conditioning units, and air handlers are installed. Prior to Quick-Sling, contractors needed to assemble approximately 12 separate materials (steel beams, side beam hangers, washers, nuts and bolts, etc.) to create a functional and safe mounting system to support equipment. All Quick-Sling products come 80 percent assembled. Now, a process that used to take approximately two-plus hours, can take as little as five minutes, said the company, saving the contractor valuable time and money.
Quick-Sling’s full suite of products spans seven different product lines: Quick-Slings, Quick-Stands, Mini-Split Stands, Quick-Swivels, Wall-Brackets, Boiler Brackets, and Super Stands. The company also offers an array of accessory products.
Quick-Sling employs more than 30 people, including 16 fabricators, who can develop custom products for customers. Customers can continue to order products and do business with the company as they currently do during the integration period, which is expected to be complete by the end of May.
DiversiTech’s acquisition of Quick-Sling is the company’s third acquisition in the past five months. The company currently offers more than 7,000 product items in over 200 product categories.
