CHICAGO — Nortek Air, a sister company to Nortek Control, is being acquired by privately held Madison Industries for $3.63 billion.
The deal adds Nortek brands such as Broan, NuTone, Reznor, StatePoint, Zephyr, Huntair and others to Madison’s large portfolio of indoor air quality solutions. Nortek’s Ergotron and Nortek Control businesses are not part of the deal.
