Acuity Brands To Buy KE2 Therm

By Dan Anderson • Apr 18, 2023

Acuity Brands recently announced a definitive agreement to buy KE2 Therm Solutions, a company that develops and provides intelligent refrigeration control solutions that improve profitability by increasing system efficiency and decreasing operational and service costs. The deal is expected to close during the spring of 2023 when KE2 Therm will begin integrating into Distech Controls within the Intelligent Spaces Group business segment of Acuity. The deal is subject to the satisfaction of certain customary closing conditions. Until close, the companies will continue to operate independently.


“We are focused on increasing our addressable market for Distech Controls. In recent months, we have expanded our presence in new regions and now, with the acquisition of KE2 Therm, we will expand into the commercial refrigeration controls market as it transitions from analog to digital controls. KE2 Therm’s controls and software will help us lead this transition, and we are excited to welcome the talented team to Acuity.”

– Peter Han, President of the Intelligent Spaces Group

“By combining Distech Controls’ market-leading controls, sensors, and software with KE2 Therm’s refrigeration solutions, we will improve our customer access and unlock new market opportunities. We share the same values and focus on product innovation and superior technical support. We are thrilled to join Acuity.”

– Patrick Holdmeyer, President of KE2 Therm
