Cambridge Engineering, an industry leader in HVAC solutions for commercial and industrial facilities, has named Gene Slavens regional manager for the southwestern United States, furthering the company’s expansion into commercial cooling with added focus in the region.
Slavens brings 34 years of experience to Cambridge Engineering, most recently serving as regional account manager for the western territory of ClimateMaster, a leading manufacturer of geothermal and other energy efficient heating and cooling solutions. At Cambridge, he will lead growth and relationship-building in Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas, Oklahoma and California.
“Gene is an experienced leader with a strong reputation for going the extra mile to help customers identify reliable indoor-comfort solutions that save energy and costs, while creating more productive workplaces,” said Doug Eisenhart, vice president of sales and marketing for Cambridge Engineering. “We are thrilled to have him serve as our central figure for introducing Cambridge’s new evaporative cooling technologies to new markets across the southwestern United States.”
A veteran in the commercial construction industry, Slavens has built a career serving contractors, businesses and architects across the southeast and southwest Unites States as a regional sales manager and representative, masonry consultant, and project manager and estimator. He holds degrees in construction management from North Lake College and East Texas State University.
“It’s an exciting time at Cambridge Engineering,” said Slavens. “Cambridge is a known leader in high-temperature heating and ventilation, and with its honest, engaging culture and great people, I am proud to join the company as it expands into direct and indirect evaporative cooling.”
Cambridge high-temperature heating and ventilation (HTHV), cooling and make-up air products provide comfort and improve indoor air quality in a wide range of industrial and commercial spaces, including distribution centers and warehouses, manufacturing facilities, sporting venues, utilities and educational institutions.
In December 2018, the company debuted the E-Series and ESC-Series cooling lines to help facilities efficiently meet indoor air quality and comfort standards without the use of refrigerants. The E-Series provides direct evaporative cooling, using only about 30 percent of the energy of conventional mechanical cooling systems. The ESC-Series is semi-custom and uses only 60 to 75 percent of the energy of typical mechanical systems, providing indirect and/or direct evaporative cooling.
Cambridge is deeply involved in research and development to offer products that save energy, reduce operating costs and safely improve indoor air quality in commercial and industrial buildings. Cambridge is an active member of the DOE’s Better Buildings Alliance, an initiative of manufacturers and businesses dedicated to reducing energy consumption in commercial spaces by a minimum of 20 percent by the year 2020.
