Combined capabilities will give customers full end-to-end cooling and comfort solutions for data centres.
Daikin Applied has announced the acquisition of Alliance Air Products, the San Diego-based leader in custom air-handling equipment design and manufacturing. Alliance Air’s engineering and technology expertise adds to the Daikin portfolio of high-efficiency equipment and services for data centre cooling, and other mission-critical and custom applications. Engineers, and building owners and operators now have a single supplier for end-to-end HVAC solutions, enhancing time to delivery and productivity while lowering lifecycle costs.
Data centre construction, in particular, is expected to grow at a high rate through 2028 and beyond, accelerating the demand for cooling solutions with an emphasis on energy efficiency and sustainability. The combined capabilities of Daikin and Alliance Air address these industry requirements, including chiller-to-computer room air-handler (CRAH) systems that help mitigate a data centre’s environmental impact. These systems provide an ideal balance of energy and water conservation.
Alliance Air’s precision and speed are enabled by its total wrap-around services that deliver comprehensive customer support — from engineering assistance to design, testing and field services. In addition to data centre cooling, the merged operations will serve an array of applications that require custom designs, such as hospitals, manufacturing facilities and labs.
Customers can expect enhanced agility to better serve their design and delivery needs, coupled with 360-degree service and a local approach backed by Daikin’s global resources.
