In recent years, Halton has been systematically working to expand its range of professional kitchen products from hood solutions to comprehensive air handling systems.

Georges Gaspar, Director, Halton Foodservice“The acquisition of LCSystems supports our chosen strategy and accelerates the entry of our comprehensive solutions into the North American market, where we will continue to aim at significant growth as the industry-leading technology supplier”, says Georges Gaspar, Director of Halton Foodservice.

The acquisition is preceded by a long history between the two companies that has its roots in development work done within the ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, Inc.) network in the 1990s. The companies started cooperation for manufacturing ETL licensed products in 2004.

“Our long cooperation has been very functional, and I believe that this acquisition offers interesting opportunities for creating new, innovative and customer-focused solutions for this important market”, Gaspar says.

2019 will mark Halton’s 30th anniversary on the US market.
