Berg Chilling Systems formally announced its acquisition of Industrial Refrigerated Systems (IRSL) this week. The transaction was completed in December 2016, and early response from customers and industry stakeholders has been extremely positive.
The acquisition combines the skills and expertise of our two companies, and will now provide customers with a one stop shop for all their refrigeration equipment and service needs regardless of refrigerant type. Combined, Berg and IRSL now have a complete service offering that is truly unique to the industry – featuring both natural and HFC based refrigerants – and can respond to customer needs on a 24/7 basis, anywhere in the world a plane can fly.
Existing customers of IRSL now have access to Berg’s considerable engineering and manufacturing expertise, including skid-mounted custom engineered refrigeration solutions using natural refrigerants, to its customers.
Berg has been satisfying customers for more than 45 years
Berg Chilling Systems designs, manufacturers, installs and services custom industrial thermal process control systems for a broad range of industries and specialized applications around the world. For more than 45 years, Berg has continued to satisfy customers with 5,000 chilling systems in more than 30 industries across 50 countries.
Enhanced customer experience
The combined strengths of our two companies is a win for the clients we serve. Customers that have purchased ammonia refrigeration systems from Berg in the past can now call on us to provide service and maintenance that was previously sourced elsewhere.
IRSL’s customers can now take advantage of Berg’s extensive engineering expertise and their ISO – certified manufacturing facility that skid – mounts and factory tests their solutions prior to shipping to ensure ease of installation and commissioning, and minimal disruption to their production operations.
How the two companies will work together
The combination of Berg and IRSL, is a match a long awaited in the market. IRSL, is known for its exceptional level of customer service and support of ammonia chillers, and Berg is renowned for its custom engineered, skid-mounted industrial systems.
Whether it be skid – mounted or build in – place, ammonia, other natural refrigerants or HFC, Berg and IRSL, can do it all.
Both companies continue operations in their existing facilities.
IRSL, will continue to operate out of their facility in the West end of the Greater Toronto Area. With Berg headquarters in the East end of Toronto, and IRSL in the West, we are ideally positioned to provide highly responsive refrigeration service throughout Ontario from our fleet of 25 service vehicles.
All warranties and obligations continue as before
All existing warranties and obligations in place with IRSL’s customers will continue to be honored. There will be no disruption in the any other areas of the business.
Both companies will continue to operate under their own brand
It is important for IRSL’s customers to know they will continue to call the same phone number they always have with the confidence they’ll receive the same high level of service they have enjoyed.
