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.
