International specialist in air movement, filtration and distribution, Elta Group has strengthened its position in Australasia through the acquisition of Smooth Air in New Zealand.
For almost 30 years, Smooth Air has operated as a specialist ventilation company in the New Zealand market with offices located in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington.
Over recent years, Elta Group has steadily been growing its portfolio in Australasia through the development of Idealair, Fantech, Fantech Trade and Elta Fans. Furthermore, in New Zealand, the acquisition of NCS Acoustics has provided collaborative growth as well as increased market share in building services and OEM applications.
Smooth Air employs more than 85 members of staff across New Zealand and is committed to ensuring that its product range and custom builds meet the appropriate quality and Australia/New Zealand compliance and safety standards.
As with the wider Elta Group businesses, its manufacturing facilities use the latest production technologies and equipment. This is alongside the expert application of traditional sheet metal-craft, with specialists utilising vacuum-forming, press brake, CNC plasma, CNC 3D Routing, turret punch, and spinning facilities to create custom-made HVAC components.
David Ball, chairman of Elta Group, commented: “Not only is Smooth Air a leader in its field, its owners have created a culture reflective of Elta Group’s own family approach, driven by tremendous spirit. I am privileged that they are now part of our family.”
