Canada-based Smartcool Systems Inc. merged with Aeris Environmental Ltd., an Australia-based provider of energy efficient solutions.

Smartcool Australia Pty., an independent Smartcool distributor with some exclusive distribution rights in Australia, has distributed and installed Smartcool products over the past 10 years, including providing Smartcool’s energy efficiency solutions to large national and multinational corporations.

“Integrating Smartcool Australia into Aeris represents a significant opportunity to grow the installed base of Smartcool users. Aeris is extremely well connected in the medical, dental and property management markets. We are already seeing the benefits of our association with the recent installation in the first location of a large multinational retail chain,” says Chris Rogerson, president of Smartcool Australia.

“Peter Bush, chief executive officer of Aeris, has a mandate to grow sales of Smartcool technology. Aeris has rebranded Smartcool as SmartEnergy and will be leveraging the strong business contacts of the principal shareholders of Aeris. Early indications suggest a large pipeline of multi-unit installations that have already commenced installations and will build over the balance of the year. Peter believes that growth in sales will accelerate based on several successful trials completed over the last quarter. We will be working closely with Aeris to assist in accomplishing this goal,” adds Ted Konyi, chairman and CEO of Smartcool.
