Corporation, Inc. Acquires Western Canwell.
Moffitt Corporation, Inc. (Moffitt) today announced that it has
finalized the purchase of Western Canwell (Canwell) of Denison, TX.
This purchase adds the Canwell factory, product line, sales
representatives and manufacturing expertise to Moffitt’s existing
global industrial ventilation and natural solutions business.
Canwell has produced
natural ventilators and heat and smoke relief devices since
1927. They own patents for their Firex™ Heat and Smoke ventilator,
Thermoflow™ Gravity Ventilator, and Ridgepac™ Gravity Ventilator.
They have been at the forefront of product innovation and
development for nearly 90 years and have provided their equipment to
hundreds of facilities in dozens of industries.
The new manufacturing location will allow Moffitt to better serve
the Western U.S. and Mexico, which each include some of Moffitt’s
fastest growing markets. The addition of the new facility will
increase Moffitt’s production capacity, expand its product line,
decrease lead times, improve service, and lower costs. .

“We are privileged
to welcome the talented staff at Western Canwell as part of the
Moffitt team”, said John Moffitt, President of Moffitt
Corporation. “Many of the Canwell team members have built their
careers there over the past 20 years. We are fortunate to be
able to bring that level of experience to the Moffitt team on
day one. It is our goal to build upon the solid foundation
created by the previous Canwell ownership, to further strengthen
Moffitt’s position as the leading provider in North America of
Natural Ventilation Systems, and to expand our capabilities into
new Natural Solutions technologies for building envelopes.”
Clark Crandall (plant manager of Canwell) added, “I am thrilled
that the hard-working, dedicated, and experienced men and women
of Western Canwell are becoming a part of the Moffitt team.
We’ve long admired Moffitt as the industry leader in Natural
Ventilation products, and look forward to helping them continue
to provide innovative and effective ventilation solutions.”
Moffitt products have
been a part of the commercial and industrial marketplace throughout
North America for over 55 years. The Moffitt line of natural
ventilation products provides facilities with a ventilation solution
that requires zero operating costs and zero maintenance costs, while
still resulting in cooler and more comfortable buildings.
Canwell, which will now be known as Moffitt West, will work closely
with Moffitt’s existing manufacturing facility in Le Roy, NY.
Moffitt has been manufacturing ventilators, louvers, and fans for 25
years. Moffitt’s entire product line will be made available from
both the Denison, TX and Le Roy, NY locations, and both
manufacturing facilities will be supported by centralized
engineering at Moffitt’s headquarters in Jacksonville Beach, FL.
