Modine currently serves the approximately $2 billion North American chiller market with large chillers targeting the data center market. The acquisition of Napps Technology allows Modine to enhance its offerings to the K-12 school market, while also enabling Modine to serve a broader range of customers and end markets seeking small tonnage chillers and chillers with heat pumps. Modine expects to generate between $6 million to $8 million in revenue this year from the acquisition and forecasts doubling that within two years.

"Technologies that improve indoor air quality are more important than ever, especially in schools," said Jake Feldman, Vice President and General Manager of Modine's Indoor Air Quality business. "Napps Technology's modular, heat pump chillers perfectly complement our existing portfolio of indoor air quality technologies and equip us to meet a broader range of customer needs in the K-12 school market and beyond," said Feldman.

Modine also announced that it will continue to manufacture in Longview, Texas, and that Sam Neale, current president of Napps Technology, will join Modine. Jake Feldman continued, "Sam has done an outstanding job building the Jetson brand and diversifying Napps Technology's product and customer base over the last five years. We're thrilled to have him join Modine."

"Modine is a leader in providing quality, innovative heating and cooling solutions. We're proud to become part of Modine and look forward to continuing to provide trusted systems that improve indoor air quality." said Sam Neale.
