West Yorkshire noise control technology company acquired by US firm

US firm CECO Environmental Corp has acquired Wakefield Acoustics, a design and manufacturing firm specialising in advanced industrial, commercial and environmental noise control systems.

The addition of Wakefield to CECO’s Thermal Acoustics business platform advances CECO’s leadership position within the industrial silencing and noise attenuation segment by adding a range of solutions and access to new geographic markets and industrial segments.

Wakefield’s current Managing Director, Kevin Stills, will remain with Wakefield and work within Thermal Acoustics and across CECO to drive strategic growth.

“I am excited to welcome Wakefield Acoustics and their excellent leadership team to CECO Environmental. Wakefield is an industry-recognized brand, with more than 40 years of engineering leadership in the industrial acoustics market. With our complementary suite of products and solutions, CECO will be well-positioned to expand in the high growth energy and green markets in Europe and beyond,” said Todd Gleason, Chief Executive Officer, CECO Environmental Corp.

“The acquisition fits perfectly within our strategy to advance our industrial air leadership position while also accessing additional energy transition markets for sustainable growth.”
