Modine Manufacturing Company has announced that UK subsidiary Airedale International Air Conditioning has acquired the shares of privately-held Barkell, a manufacturer of custom-built air-handling units.
This acquisition will provide Modine with an expanded product offering into the air handling segment, further extending its overall business offering to the HVAC markets.
The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Since its founding in 1981, Barkell has focused on the custom air handling market within the UK.
“Acquiring Barkell helps us expand both our product line and our sales channel in the UK,” said Modine vice-president Matt McBurney.
“In addition, this acquisition will help us build on Modine’s success in the growing data centre air conditioning market by providing innovative solutions, including adiabatic cooling.”
