ABC is a contractor for leading food retailers, such as ALDI, Hannaford and Target.
This week (4 March) CoolSys, Calif., a parent company of a slew of HVAC&R outfits, announced the acquisition of NY-based ABC Refrigeration & HVAC.
ABC has installed commercial refrigeration equipment for U.S. retail natural refrigerant leaders ALDI, Hannaford and Target.
“The acquisition of ABC is a major milestone for CoolSys, as we continue on our path of expansion throughout the U.S.,” Adam Coffey, CEO of CoolSys, said in a press release. “Adding ABC to the CoolSys family establishes our presence in a significant way in the strategically important Northeast region.”
Coolsys has previously acquired Source Refrigeration & HVAC, Advanced Refrigeration Systems, Certified Refrigeration & Mechanical (CRM), Legacy Air, RSI, Service Refrigeration Co and Axiom and Energy Solutions (bought in May 2018).
Source is known for its work with natural refrigerants, including transcritical CO2 systems, and the installation of the first ammonia/CO2 cascade system at an Albertsons store in Carpinteria, Calif
“Like CoolSys, we take pride in our reputation and strive to ensure that our customers receive the highest standards of service, quality and value by extensively and consistently training our technicians,” said Joseph C. Ligoci, the current owner of ABC. “We are looking forward to becoming part of the CoolSys family of companies and to combining our strengths to benefit our customers and expand our business in the Northeast.”
