"This transaction is consistent with our strategy to focus our resources on our most attractive opportunities for value creation. I would like to thank our talented Air Distribution Technologies employees for their hard work and dedication over the years. We are confident the business and the team will be well positioned for future success under Truelink's ownership."

Included in the sale are market-leading air distribution and movement brands Koch Filter, Titus, Ruskin, Kreuger, PennBarry and Tuttle & Bailey and their product lines of grilles, registers and diffusers, terminal units, fire and smoke dampers, louvers, filters and fans. Air Distribution Technologies products are manufactured in the United States, Mexico, India, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates in facilities that will transfer to Truelink as part of the transaction. The Johnson Controls and Enviro-Tec brands are not included in the transaction.

"Air Distribution Technologies has been a leading player in the commercial HVAC space for over 75 years, and has consistently delivered innovative, high-quality products to its customers, demonstrating a strong track record of excellence," said Truelink's Co-Founder and Managing Partner Todd Golditch. "Our objective will be to expand the business through partnership with management in driving substantial commercial and operational improvements to strengthen Air Distribution Technology's market-leading position and better serve their customers.
