UK: Ormandy Rycroft Engineering has completed the acquisition of HVAC solutions provider HRS Hevac Ltd and subsidiary HeatExchangerSpares.com (HES) from Canadian heat exchanger manufacturer Exchanger Industries Ltd (EIL).
According to an Ormandy statement, the HES site in Watford (UK) will continue operations while employees from its Elland facility will transfer to Ormandy’s manufacturing site, just under 12 miles away in Bradford.
