Canadian firm acquires Cumberland County HVAC company

A company in Hampden Township has been acquired by a Canadian company.

Ainsworth Inc., a subsidiary of GDI Integrated Facility Services Inc. acquired Enginuity on September 1. Enginuity, which also has an office in Maryland, also provides heating, cooling, piping, mechanical, design, construction and other services to industrial and commercial customers. Enginuity has more than 125 employees.

“We are very excited about joining forces with Ainsworth as it represents the next step in Enginuity’s strategic evolution and will support our future growth,” said Jim Mooney, president of Enginuity, in a statement posted on the company’s website. “Enginuity will become Ainsworth’s business partner serving the Pennsylvania and Maryland markets.”

The 19-year-old Mechanicsburg-area company expanded into Maryland earlier this year when it acquired Triad Mechanical services.

Based in Toronto, Ontario, Ainsworth provides HVAC, mechanical, electrical and other services to institutional, commercial and industrial customers. Founded in 1933, the company employs more than 2,700 people through 20 offices in Canada and the United States.

“Enginuity is a very well run company with a strong culture that is perfectly aligned with ours, and it is a solid strategic fit as it operates within GDI’s existing geographic footprint in the US,” said Claude Bigras, president and CEO of GDI in a press release.

The terms of the agreement have not been disclosed.
