Lytron Inc. acquired Lydall Industrial Thermal Solutions Inc. ("Affinity") from Lydall Inc. Affinity manufactures high performance industrial chillers and liquid-to-liquid cooling systems for the semiconductor, laser and industrial markets.
"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," says Craig Carswell, president and CEO of Lytron.
"The experience of Lytron's and Affinity's engineers also complements
each other, further improving our ability to solve the most challenging thermal
requirement…. Additionally, joining service organizations will expand both
companies' service networks, Carswell adds.
Woburn, Mass.-based Lytron plans to maintain Affinity's headquarters and
manufacturing facility in Ossipee, N.H., as well as the Affinity sales and
service centers internationally.
