History of Silent-Aire

Business Continuity is in our DNA

Co-CEOs Dan and Lindsey Leckelt started working for the family business as teenagers and experienced the true power of air when their parents’ HVAC contracting facility was wiped out by an F4 tornado in 1987.

At our roots, Silent-Aire engineered and manufactured custom HVAC solutions for institutions; hospitals, schools, and recreational complexes.  The company grew into larger industrial HVAC deployments for mining and energy companies.  In early 2000 Dan and Lindsey graduated from University of Alberta with Civil and Mechanical Engineering degrees and took on the leadership and strategic direction of Silent-Aire.  We continued to grow organically and acquired a new manufacturing facility in Edmonton that was the catalyst to expanding into the data center mission critical HVAC business.

In 2012 Silent-Aire built a second 100,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Edmonton that included 4 assembly lines and new office space for our engineering and operations.  In 2014, for additional capacity and redundancy, a 3rd manufacturing facility was built in Phoenix, Arizona that mirrored the Edmonton facility.  In 2017 Silent-Aire expanded into Europe with acquisition of RMI Engineering based in Dublin, Ireland.

In 2019 we are celebration 25 Years of Innovation at Silent-Aire.

The majority of our growth over the past 10 years has come from our data center customers that require mission critical infrastructure for their ever expanding hyper-scale clouds.   As a result, we have taken a relentless focus on operations, quality and safety that includes ISO 9001 – Quality, ISO 14001 – Environment, OHSAS 18001- Safety.
