Climate Technologies has its roots in two corporations, R. Johnson Associates, incorporated in 1970 and R. Plazibat Associates, formed in 1976. Both Johnson and Plazibat were engaged in industrial temperature and humidity control and process heat exchange.
Walt Zimmerman, the current CEO of Climate Technologies, joined Plazibat Associates in 1986 and bought out the previous owner in 1989. The following year he acquired Johnson Associates and merged the two firms.
The new entity was named Climate Technologies Corporation and grew to a full-service integrator of temperature and humidity control systems with service, manufacturing, and turn-key installation capability. In 1996, Climate Technologies diversified further by taking on and developing air pollution control and energy management capabilities.
Currently, Climate Technologies is further developing its customer base by diversifying across industries and markets, including government and military projects, as well as international clients.
