On behalf of the entire Environmental Conditioning Systems (ECS) team, we are thrilled to announce that substantially all of ECS’ assets will be acquired by Trane®, a world leader in creating heating, ventilating and air-conditioning systems and a business of Ingersoll Rand.

You are among the first to hear this news because we value you as an important customer. Thank you for your business over the years. The ECS team and I look forward to being a strong partner for you moving forward now as part of Trane. I will also join the Trane business and stay as with the company to ensure a smooth transition and help take care of your needs as we join as one company.

When my wife Barbara and I started ECS more than 30 years ago with our first employee Thomas Borowske, we dreamt of creating a business that building operators could rely on to ensure their facility was operating at maximum efficiency – with customer service levels they expect. By selling our business to Trane, we believe Trane will further exceed this mission.

We made the decision to sell our business to Trane because of our long tenure and history with Trane’s people and products. It was an easy decision for us because Trane’s values of integrity, trust, teamwork, innovation and customer service align closely with those at ECS.

ECS has always operated with a loyal and dedicated team who provide reliable and high quality commercial and industrial HVAC and controls services to the buildings of Northeast Ohio, and Trane values this approach. In fact, Trane is already investing in the business – especially in service - with more than 100 local employees, who are receiving additional training and new technology to enhance the service experience for our customers.

We could not be more excited about the value this transaction will bring to our customers, and hope you are as thrilled as we are about the sale to Trane. We look forward to Trane continuing to serve the Cleveland community for years to come.
