Controlled Environment Systems acquires JAX Cool

CES has acquired a company that provides thermal envelope solutions and focuses on low-temp construction

Controlled Environment Systems has acquired JAX Cool (JAX), (a division of JAX Refrigeration) a company that provides thermal envelope solutions and focuses on low-temp construction.

Along with the acquisition of Western Environmental Controls in April 2021, JAX is CES' second acquisition this year.

CES significantly enhances its capabilities with the acquisition of JAX's experienced sales team/ project management team, IMP installation expertise and implementation resources.

"CES is known for its trustworthy, reliable, value-creating, client-focused controlled environment solutions," said Don Roussinos, President and CEO of CES. "JAX delivers high-quality installation and will be an excellent fit within the Structures division of CES. The additional resources that JAX provides will help us more efficiently execute projects for our existing customers, while we at CES deliver more robust construction, systems, and calibration resources, supporting JAX's customer base. This aligns with CES's organisational vision to deliver industry leading solutions world-wide."

"Customers look for low-temp construction providers that can meet deadlines and provide solutions to issues that arise on the job. Leveraging JAX's many successful years in creating world-class thermal construction solutions and quality fabrication/installation expertise allows us at CES to more efficiently manage sites as well as build and execute on our client's vision on time and on budget."

"We are excited about opening up more opportunities through this acquisition, and we are confident that the total value delivered by CES is greatly enhanced," said Andy Lueck. "JAX is about providing industry-leading solutions, so it's a natural progression in joining with a market leader in thermal construction like CES."

When asked what the result of this acquisition would be on the employees of JAX, Roussinos said: "The people of JAX were one of the key assets we were targeting when putting this partnership together. Our goal is to continue to grow and expand the business, particularly in the Southeast region. JAX Cool's employees will remain at the current location and continue to deliver the quality work they have produced in the past."
