Home comfort supplier Lasko has acquired Intertex, Inc., dba B-Air, a developer and supplier of high-quality air movement products.
For nearly two decades, B-Air has developed and supplied air movers, dehumidifiers, air scrubbers, inflatable blowers, pet dryers and fans for commercial, industrial and retail use. B-Air products are designed in Azusa, CA.
Today, B-Air also supplies products to the water/fire damage restoration and janitorial industries and is also a supplier of air moving products in the inflatable and pet grooming industries. B-Air products are sold via retailers, distributors, and online using the B-Air and Firtana brand names.
“Lasko has a strategy to become the leader in the broader home environment category through internal development and acquisitions,” said Jerry Levin, chairman at Lasko. “B-Air provides an exciting opportunity for Lasko to take a significant step in that direction.”
As part of the transaction, B-Air’s Eddie Demirdjian, CEO and founder, and Greg Aghamanoukian, president, along with the current employees, will continue with the company.
