    Advantage: more manufacturing facilities, greater product depth

    Baltimore Aircoil Company, Baltimore, MD, (BAC) and Colmac Coil Manufacturing of Colville, WA, announced the two companies have entered into a strategic alliance to provide BAC's Aircoil™ Evaporators to the industrial refrigeration market.

    This agreement is a synergistic relationship that leverages the strengths of both companies by doubling the number of manufacturing facilities available and by providing additional product depth. Sources from the companies say that by combining Colmac’s technical expertise with BAC’s manufacturing prowess the two companies will provide more solutions and better service to the industrial refrigeration market.

    "With this exciting new development, the two companies are leveraging Colmac's innovative technology and engineering expertise with BAC's strong brand, manufacturing know-how, and extensive distribution network," states Colmac President Bruce Nelson.
