Smardt Chiller, US Chiller Join Forces
Smardt Chiller and US Chiller Services announced the formation of two new relationships, with service provider contracts executed for New York Tri State area and regional Arabian Gulf markets. Both contracts are effective immediately, and give US Chillers priority access to Smardt chiller products and services as well as the CPECS chiller plant energy optimization technology.
Smardt is based in Montreal and has additional factories in Stuttgart, Melbourne, New York, and Guangzhou. It now has some 7000 Smardt high-efficiency low-maintenance chillers in operation across the globe, and over 900 chiller models on offer from 60 tons to 2500 tons capacity.
US Chiller Services is a global independent large tonnage chiller and energy services company with operations throughout the United States and the Arabian Gulf. US Chiller Services provides specialist services for large tonnage centrifugal chillers, liquid chillers and energy solutions, as well as operation and maintenance services for the district cooling industry. The company specializes in the repair, maintenance, retrofit, and service of all OEM makes and models of large tonnage chillers ranging in size from 100 tons to 10,000 tons.
Driven by global climate change and sustainability concerns, Smardt’s growth reflects increased market focus on energy efficiency and lifetime total cost of chiller ownership. “If you’re a building owner, a Smardt chiller is a no-brainer”, according to US Chillers managing partner Dan Mizesko. “Your lifetime savings in energy costs, maintenance and repair costs compared with older lubricated equipment fall straight to your bottom line, and we’ve seen total plant savings of over 60 percent," he said.
“Our joint opportunities are enormous, with US Chiller Services responsible for hundreds of thousands of tons of aging chiller plants and superb HVAC engineering resources in both New York and the Middle East”, said Jared Peters, general manager of Smardt’s Solutions division. “And when we drive down HVAC energy consumption together across this big base, improved owner profits last throughout the life of the chiller plant”, he said.
“We’re really excited to be working at last with the Smardt technology, products and solutions”, said Mizesko. “This will make a big contribution to our building owners”.
“This is a new partnership that can be very big for both companies”, said Turbocor founder and Smardt chairman Roger Richmond-Smith, “and together we can drive it a long way”.
