HOUSTON, Texas — RectorSeal Corp. recently acquired certain assets of Resource Conservation Technologies, Sarasota, Fla., manufacturer of the air-conditioning condensate management float switch product line AquaGuard. The acquisition also includes RCT’s made-in-the-USA Goliath and Titan brands of plastic condensate overflow pans for air-conditioning units.
The Jan. 2 transaction positions the 76-year-old RectorSeal as a market share leader with its existing Safe-T-Switch and EZ Trap condensate management switches and accessories product lines. RectorSeal plans to retain and market the AquaGuard brand, as well as the acquisition’s other brands–Goliath secondary drain pans and furnace risers and Titan flexible secondary drain pans.
“We saw RCT as a fast-growing company with unique products that will expand the breadth of RectorSeal’s HVAC/R offerings, especially in the condensate management niche, which is an important part of our existing product offerings,” said David Smith, president, RectorSeal Corp. The AquaGuard float switch and Goliath secondary drain pan lines strengthen RectorSeal’s position in HVAC/R condensate management, which also includes products such as Aspen condensate pumps for ductless mini-split air conditioners, EZ Trap traps and condensate switches, Actabs biocide tablets and other accessories.
RCT products will continue to be sold through traditional HVAC/R wholesalers and are now supported by RectorSeal customer and technical support departments at 1-800-231-3345.
