Soler & Palau Acquires 4 United Enertech Brands

BARCELONA, Spain — Soler & Palau Ventilation Group (S&P), a global manufacturer and distributor of air-movement products, has acquired United Enertech Corp., Air Performance LLC, Air Conditioning Products LLC, and Metal Form Manufacturing LLC, all previously held by United Enertech Holdings, based in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The addition of the United Enertech brands expands S&P’s portfolio, adding grilles, registers, diffusers, air-terminal units, and specialty sheet-metal HVAC products to its offering of mechanical ventilation products.

The acquisition further enhances S&P’s “single-source” ventilation solution strategy for customers, engineers, contractors, and sales channel partners, a press release from S&P said. The portfolio of ventilation products provides solutions to create healthy, safe, energy-efficient, and comfortable residential, commercial, and institutional facility environments, the company said.

The 450-plus employees from the United Enertech companies will complement S&P’s current North American team, which is headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida.

“The United Enertech team’s air control and product knowledge combined with S&P’s mechanical ventilation product portfolio will provide our customers with an ideal single-source ventilation system solution,” said Eugene Scotcher, Soler & Palau Ventilation Group’s divisional managing director for North America.

The current United Enertech group senior leadership teams, which include Darby Benroth, president, and Carol Black, CFO, will remain as partners in supporting S&P’s future growth in North America, the press release said. The United Enertech senior management will report to and be supported by Walter (Buddy) Doll III, CEO of S&P–North America.
