TEC is a Minnesota-based distributor of Smartcool products and other energy efficient products that has been in business since 2003. Damian Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer of TEC, has been very successful in growing the company into profitability and developing several proprietary products.
These include Power Factor Correction equipment (PFC), Voltage Conditioning Units (VCU) and Intelligent Generator Optimization Systems (IGOS). In addition to these proprietary products, TEC markets a host of energy efficiency products to provide clients a holistic approach to energy savings in an effort to help clients reduce energy consumption and save money.
Damian Smith and Ted Konyi believe that the synergies from a strategic merger of these two companies present a very attractive growth opportunity.
Ted Konyi commented, " I first met Damian 3 years ago and was immediately impressed with the way he combined his engineering background with sound sales strategies, a rare combination. As I have become more familiar with TEC's suite of products, the tremendous synergies between the companies has become impossible to ignore. I am very excited for this merger to occur and I am eagerly anticipating significant benefits for all parties."
Damian Smith said "I am excited to join the Smartcool team at a time when major inroads are being made by a number of Smartcool divisions, as well as our own. Although TEC has been enjoying rapid growth in recent years, Ted and I believe that the combination of our two company's sales and distributor networks, as well as the complimentary products that we can offer as a comprehensive solution are key to growth in new sales opportunities, both domestically as well as internationally."
