HOUSTON — Specified Air Solutions, a manufacturer of semi-custom commercial and industrial HVAC equipment, has completed the acquisition of the Dectron pool dehumidification systems business from the Lakdawala family. Specified Air is a portfolio company of The Sterling Group, a Houston-based middle market private equity firm.

Headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Dectron is a global provider of highly-engineered custom and semi-custom dehumidification, IAQ, and energy recovery solutions primarily for indoor pools.

“Dectron is a strong addition to Specified Air’s broad portfolio of products that provide solutions across a wide variety of commercial and industrial HVAC needs,” said Charley Brown, CEO of Specified Air Solutions. The company serves a number of markets including manufacturing facilities, warehouses, educational facilities, commercial buildings, lodging facilities, health care facilities, food processing plants, and more.

“The addition of Dectron is a part of Sterling’s targeted initiative to grow Specified Air by adding complementary HVAC solutions,” said John Hawkins, a partner at The Sterling Group. “We look forward to continuing to grow the business organically and through acquisition.”

Sterling acquired Specified Air Solutions (formerly Roberts-Gordon) in 2014 with the intention of growing and expanding the company’s ability to provide niche, high-performance HVAC solutions to its customers.
