USA: Air conditioning and refrigeration tools manufacturer CPS has acquired the assets of Ontario-based UView Ultraviolet Systems Inc.

UView manufactures tools and equipment for professional automotive technicians, including automotive air conditioning-refrigerant leak detectors.

“This acquisition is a significant step forward in our ongoing drive to become the world’s leading company focused on the professional technician,” said Paul Baldetti, president of CPS.  “UView has an outstanding reputation in the automotive technician community and its culture aligns very well with ours – the teams from both companies are committed to building the best tools possible for professional technicians because we know that the technician’s income depends on those tools.”
