Carson Solutions Opens Fabrication Center, Acquires QLCI Intellectual Property Rights
MINNEAPOLIS — Carson Solutions acquired the exclusive right to manufacture, sell, and distribute the patented QLCI from TROX® USA, and has assumed production and sales support in North America.
Although the transition was sudden in Q2 2018, Carson Solutions successfully delivered all committed QLCI orders on time, without exception, to satisfy the large number of school projects slated for the summer of 2018. Carson Solutions has been able to maintain and utilize all the supplier relationships to produce the same QLCI product that customers have grown accustomed. Along with the transfer to the new fabrication center in Dalton, Georgia, Carson Solutions was able to improve the fabrication process with new tooling, better equipment, and ability for custom productions. Carson Solutions has the flexibility to provide enhanced system design, layout, and selection support for each project. In early 2019, solid surface and laminate counter top options will be available.
The patented QLCI, designed by TROX, was the first displacement induction chilled beam introduced in North America. QLCI combines the unique operational characteristics of thermal displacement ventilation with efficient active chilled beam technology in a unitary modular design. Specifically developed for North American classroom applications, the QLCI terminal provides a comfortable and healthy learning environment with superior ventilation, improved air quality, and reduced noise in an energy-efficient and esthetically pleasing design.
Chris Carson, former head of design, engineering, and production for TROX USA, was named president of Carson Solutions.
"This is a very unique opportunity to keep this great product line here in North America," Carson said. "I spent many years working with the QLCI design and will continue to offer custom solutions to achieve our customer's goals. I truly believe in the technology of displacement chilled beams, and I care about indoor air quality and quiet operation within our communities learning environments. I look forward to continued growth of the QLCI as well as new product lines in the near future."
