The acquisition positions Fresh-Aire UV to add polarized particulate filtration technologies to its UV-C disinfection and VOC air purification offerings.
Fresh-Aire UV®, Jupiter, Fla., a leading manufacturer of indoor air quality (IAQ) products, acquired commercial/residential HVAC air filtration manufacturer Electro-Breeze Manufacturing, Saint-Sauveur, Quebec, on Sept. 12.
The acquisition positions Fresh-Aire UV to now offer particulate removal, using Electro-Breeze’s sub-micron polarized filtration technology, in addition to its industry-leading IAQ product line-up that includes ultraviolet (UV-C) equipment for biological disinfection and activated carbon media catalyst air treatment for volatile organic compound (VOC) elimination. “We now offer a full-line, turnkey filtration solution for our HVAC distributors and contractors to address any IAQ challenge, whether it’s biological, VOCs and now particulates,” said Chris Willette, Fresh-Aire UV’s president.
The acquisition include Electro-Breeze’s Canadian-based manufacturing and assembly operations for its polarized particulate filtration and other IAQ equipment, all which will be relocated to Fresh-Aire UV’s new Jupiter-based filtration division manufacturing plant. Electro-Breeze’s products will be rebranded under Fresh-Aire UV or carry the new “Electro-Breeze by Fresh-Aire UV” brand, and be marketed globally. Electro-Breeze President and Founder, Pierre Audet has joined the Fresh-Aire UV team and will oversee the transition and Electro-Breeze’s equipment manufacturing operations
Audet began his career in electrostatic filtration in 1984 with Engineering Dynamic followed by his leadership position as CEO of Cimatec. In 2002 Audet founded Electro-Breeze Manufacturing, a leader in sub-micron polarized filtration. Electro-Breeze products have provided air filtration solutions globally for residential and commercial applications, especially in casino, hospitality, healthcare and agricultural markets.
“Electro-Breeze is a leader in the high-efficiency filtration and polarized air cleaner market,” said Audet. “Our global reach and innovative solutions have made Electro-Breeze a premier filtration manufacturer offering exceptional solutions for those looking for highly effective sub-micron filtration with low static-pressure and odor control.
