USA: Danfoss has acquired AAIM Controls Inc, a leader in custom-designed regulation and control automation solutions for the US industrial refrigeration market.

AAIM Controls was founded in 2003, and employs 24 people within administration, engineering, and manufacturing in their 16,000ft² facility in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania.

“By adding electronic regulation and control automation to our already-extensive portfolio of components for industrial refrigeration applications, we strengthen our global position by becoming a systems provider in the industrial refrigeration market,” commented Danfoss Cooling president Jürgen Fischer.

“In the industrial refrigeration market, controllers are often seen as the central part of a system offering. With the addition of AAIM’s strong knowledge base and their highly specialised solutions, we gain a unique competitive advantage where we can better address these customer requirements,” said Kristian Strand, Danfoss Cooling’s recently appointed president – refrigeration and A/C controls.
