Johnson Controls, the global specialist in smart and sustainable buildings, has announced it has acquired Cool Solution, a prominent service provider of air conditioning and refrigeration within the UK and Ireland.
With offices in Cardiff and Tewksbury, the acquisition allows Johnson Controls to fill a geographic service gap in Wales and the South West. This will enable Johnson Controls’ HVAC team to service more customers, and ensure the company can better serve its existing customers with an even stronger install and service offering.
“I am thrilled to welcome Cool Solution into the Johnson Controls family,” said Gail Hunter, general manager of HVAC Solutions at Johnson Controls UK&I. “The team has created a strong business across Wales and the South West, and they will be an invaluable asset in helping to serve our nationwide customer base. Johnson Controls and Cool Solution will be stronger together, and our shared values will benefit both employees and customers alike.”
Matt Williams, managing director of Cool Solution said: “I am confident the integration of Cool Solution and Johnson Controls will be a benefit not only to customers, but to our teams too. After 17 years growing the company into what it is today, it is hugely comforting to secure the continued success of the business. Thanks to our shared core values, I’m certain that the group has an amazing future ahead.”
There has been mixed reaction to the Government's long-awaited Heat and Buildings Strategy from heating industry bodies.
The Strategy has unveiled phased out dates for the installation of fossil fuel heating, increased funding support for households purchasing heat pumps, and the rebalancing of environmental levies on electricity.
