Enertech, Inc. and Northern Geothermal Corp plan to cease sourcing product from WaterFurnace International Industries (WFI) of Fort Wayne, IN, U.S. Enertech and Northern Geothermal make up the U.S.'s largest geothermal distribution company, whose assets include both the GeoComfort and Paradise brands of geothermal heating and cooling equipment.
The announcement comes in the wake of the development of Enertech Manufacturing, LLC, as a result of the entity's acquisition of the manufacturing facility and intellectual property of Hydron Module, LLC., a geothermal heating and cooling equipment company based in Mitchell, SD, U.S. The acquisition was finalized on Oct. 25, 2007.
Enertech Manufacturing has begun construction on a plant expansion at the Mitchell facility to better meet the growing demand for the GeoComfort and Paradise brands. The transition to GeoComfort and Paradise branded product manufactured exclusively by Enertech Manufacturing is planned to be complete within the next 12 months. In addition, the company will continue to manufacture and provide the Hydron Module brand to its existing dealer and distribution network.
