Halton Group, a global indoor air company, has acquired the business activities and product design rights of LCSystems, a family company from Kentucky in the United States that manufactures supply and exhaust air equipment for professional kitchens.
The acquisition makes the company a part of Halton’s foodservice business that specialises in professional kitchen environments. In 2017, the firm delivered professional kitchen indoor air solutions to some 6,000 locations around the world.
In recent years, the firm has been systematically working to expand its range of professional kitchen products from hood solutions to comprehensive air handling systems.
Georges Gaspar, Director of Halton Foodservice, said: “The acquisition of LCSystems supports our chosen strategy and accelerates the entry of our comprehensive solutions into the North American market, where we will continue to aim at significant growth as the industry-leading technology supplier.”
Steve Brown, founder for LCSystems, added: “I have known Halton for over 20 years and seen that our approach to product innovation, quality and customer relationship management is similar. This experience has convinced me that LCSystems’ customers will continue to receive high-quality service from Halton.”
The acquisition was thought to be worth around $4m (£3.1m).
