Our successful line of inverter-based air-to-water heat pumps under the SpacePak brand and our commercial heat pumps under the RBI brand, will be synergistically complemented by the addition of Transom. The Transom team has over 30 years of experience in the design and manufacturing of chillers and heat pumps, for commercial and industrial application such as mission critical, marine, rail, process control, general comfort heating and cooling.
