CECO Environmental Corp has completed the acquisition of a Frome-headquartered industrial air quality consultancy and engineering specialist.

Founded in 1973, Western Air Ducts specialises in the engineering, manufacturing and distribution of dust extraction and fume extraction services.

Its Inteliair brand provides customers with an automated intelligent air control system.

Effective immediately, both brands will be folded into CECO’s industrial air platform.

“This is another strategic and accretive acquisition for CECO and expands our industrial air addressable market by more than $150m,” said Todd Gleason, chief executive of CECO Environmental.

“The acquisition adds a standard product offering to our extensive dust collector portfolio, and the Inteliair energy-efficient smart logic controls provide significant opportunity for growth and global product introductions.”

He added: “We are excited to welcome Western Air to our organisation and we look forward to working with their leadership team to accelerate growth and new product and service offerings.”

Western Air was advised by corporate finance boutique The Camlee Group and associate director, Chris Murthi.
