U.S. company acquires Canadian HVAC filter manufacturer

Chris Willette, left, president of Fresh-Air UV, and Pierre Audet, right, president of Electro-Breeze are joining forces and moving manufacturing to Florida.
Fresh-Aire UV, Jupiter, Florida, has acquired commercial and residential HVAC air filtration manufacturer Electro-Breeze Manufacturing, Saint-Sauveur, Quebec, as of Sept. 12.
The acquisition expands Fresh-Aire UV into the particulate removal industry, using Electro-Breeze’s sub-micron polarized filtration technology. “We now offer a full-line, turnkey filtration solution for our HVAC distributors and contractors to address any indoor air quality (IAQ) challenge, whether it’s biological, VOCs and now particulates,” said Chris Willette, Fresh-Aire UV president.
The deal will include Electro-Breeze’s Canadian-based manufacturing and assembly operations where it manufactures its polarized particulate filtration and other IAQ equipment, all of 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 but Fresh-Aire UV” brand.
President and founder of Electro-Breeze, Pierre Audet, will join Fresh-Aire UV and will oversee the transition of manufacturing operations.
