Cooling technology specialist Lytron has completed the acquisition of Lydall Industrial Thermal Solutions (also known as Affinity) from the Lydall group. Affinity is a leading designer and manufacturer of high performance industrial chillers and liquid-to-liquid cooling systems for the semiconductor, laser, and industrial markets.
Craig Carswell, president and CEO of Lytron, said: 'The acquisition of Affinity will strengthen partnerships with new and existing customers, leveraging our complementary technologies, products, manufacturing capabilities, and global coverage. Affinity’s product offering and expertise in low and high temperature chillers, systems that are compatible with dielectric fluids, rack-mounted chillers, and liquid cooling systems enhances Lytron’s strengths in cold plates, heat exchangers, and thermal systems. By broadening Lytron’s technologies we will be able to address all of our customers’ liquid cooling needs.'
Lytron plans to maintain Affinity’s headquarters and manufacturing facility in Ossipee, NH, USA, as well as the Affinity sales and service centres located around the world.
