Custom HVAC air handling systems | CAPS

Posted on

Custom HVAC air handling systems has been CAPS’ specialty for almost 20 years. Our manufacturing facilities are located in Houston, TX, but we provide air handling system products and services all over the world. CAPS understands the importance of custom air handling systems and how integral they are to commercial and industrial businesses on a global scale.

Why are custom HVAC air handling systems so important?

According to CSE (Consulting-Specifying Engineer Magazine):

Custom air handling units are available in nearly any configuration that a user might require. They generally have the highest quality construction and are most commonly used in institutional or industrial applications where high flow rates, very close control, and harsh conditions exist. They may also be applied in irregular spaces that would not conform to a modular line. Custom units can be configured to include virtually any combination of air processing components. They also can include walkways and service areas within them and can even accommodate space for skid-mounted equipment like pumps or heat exchangers. They are the most costly of all of the types of units discussed, but can be expected to have the longest lifespan.

By customizing your HVAC air handling system, CAPS can configure the equipment exactly to your unique specifications and constraints.

CAPS is passionate about manufacturing your commercial and industrial custom HVAC air handling system.

We enjoy providing solutions that work best for you. We specialize in the fabrication and manufacturing of customized HVAC units, portable air handlers, explosion proof HVAC units, commercial and industrial HVAC units, industrial heaters, custom marine and boat air units, modular air handlers, oil rig handlers, offshore HVAC units, air coolers, and wall mounted air conditioners.

We are eager to put our expertise to work for you! For more information regarding custom HVAC air handling systems, please call CAPS at 713-460-9009 or contact CAPS at info@customairproducts.com.

Equipment Wrapping Challenge? No Sweat!

“We don’t have the capability to wrap that unit for shipment…it’s simply too large. We’ll have to outsource that job.”

I heard these words spoken in the hallway just outside my office a week ago. Imagine my surprise yesterday when the Shipping Department Supervisor, James Ochoa, asked me to grab my camera and take a few pictures of the now wrapped unit.

“Didn’t you get someone to come in and handle that for you?” I asked.

“Nope,” he said, “we priced it, but it was outrageously expensive.”

“So I got my guys together and had them take another good, hard look at the unit,” he explained. “My team scratched their heads just a bit, made a few comments about the relatively square shape, then decided to give it a shot. This is, by far, the largest unit we’ve wrapped to-date, and I think they did an awesome job. That’s why I’m hoping you’ll take some photos of it.”

Creativity and innovation are often found in CAPS’ engineering department work, but it’s definitely not the only place those traits show up in our company. We see evidences every day of CAPS employees at all levels of the organization thinking outside the box, stretching to expand their capabilities, and demonstrating a willingness to try new strategies to accomplish project goals.

This was just one of those times when James and his shipping department team members took on the challenge, stepped up to the plate, and delivered a home run for the team. Way to go, guys!

Taylor Norris, CEO at Custom Air Products & Services, Inc. (CAPS), recognized Mary Alenbratt, CAPS business analyst, for taking 1st place in her age group in the Mammoth Lake Sprint Triathlon. CAPS is a leading commercial and industrial heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) company headquartered in Houston, Texas.

Taylor Norris, CEO Custom Air Products & Services, Inc. (CAPS), today congratulated CAPS employee Mary Alenbratt for taking first place in her age division, 20-29 years old, in the Inaugural Mammoth Lake Sprint Triathlon on Saturday, October 3, 2015.

“Promoting health and wellness among our employees benefits our company, our customers, and our communities,” said Taylor Norris, CAPS chief executive officer. “The triathlon is a test of endurance for athletes and we are proud of Mary’s participation, and achievement, in this event.”

The Mammoth Lake Triathlon is held each year in Lake Jackson, TX, and consists of three different events. The Olympic Distance Triathlon, Sprint Triathlon, and Youth Splash ‘N Dash. Mary competed in the Sprint Triathlon, a physically demanding race consisting of a 500 meter swim, followed by a 12.5 mile bike ride, and concluding with a 3.1 mile run.

“The weather was perfect for this event,” explained Mary. “Although the morning temperature was a little on the chilly side, the lake temperature was around 80 degrees, just right for the first leg of the race.”

Recently promoted to Business Analyst at CAPS, Alenbratt has excelled in a number of areas including company, professional, and personal. She performs in a number of support roles at CAPS, serves as a board member and director in the Swedish-American Chambers of Commerce (SACC) Texas Young Professionals, serves as vice president in the Swedish Women Educational Association (SWEA) chapter in Houston, and regularly competes in local sporting events.

“We like it when our employees participate in activities that encourage healthy living,” stated Vice President David Wasson, “but Mary regularly takes this to a whole new level. Not only did she complete this course at the head of her group but she also recently performed so well in the Chevron Houston Marathon that she qualified to participate in the next Boston Marathon. CAPS is looking forward to sponsoring her effort at that prestigious event in the spring.”

Mary Alenbratt serves as an example in the company, and in the community, of a young professional business woman striving to make a difference. “We are extremely proud of all of Mary’s achievements,” pointed out Norris, “but more than that, we feel lucky to have her on the CAPS team.”

Custom Air Products & Services’ Systems Analyst Earns Ph.D.

Posted on

Taylor Norris, CEO Custom Air Products & Services, Inc. (CAPS), today announced that Bea Amaya has successfully earned her Ph.D. in Technical Communication and Rhetoric. CAPS is a leading commercial and industrial heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) company headquartered in Houston, Texas.

Houston, TX (PRWeb) September 18, 2015 — Taylor Norris, CEO Custom Air Products & Services, Inc. (CAPS), today announced that CAPS Systems Analyst, Bea Amaya, has successfully defended her dissertation and has completed all the requirements for earning her Ph.D. in Technical Communication and Rhetoric.

150921-Bea-01Amaya has worked for CAPS on several occasions, first as a part-time contractor and later as a full-time employee. At the end of the summer of 2014 she took a one-year leave of absence from the company to accept a teaching role at Texas A&M University at Qatar while working on completing her dissertation. “Most people who earn their Ph.D. are, or are destined to become, university faculty,” Bea explained, “but I had no such experience. When the opportunity came up to work at a prestigious university in the Middle East for a short term, I knew it might be my only chance to do so. Teaching was a wonderful, rewarding experience and I wouldn’t have missed that experience for anything. But my roots, my experience, and my expertise are all in industry, so here I am again, back at CAPS, and doing what I know and love.”

A Technical Communicator by training in a Systems Analyst position at CAPS, Amaya focuses her work on designing data management tools and on converting raw data into clear, concise, and useful information for management, division managers, salesmen, customers, and others to use in making sound business decisions.

“We are very excited to have Bea back home and working with us here at CAPS again,” said CEO Taylor Norris. “We have a lot of incredibly talented people in our organization but, as an organization, have not always done the best job of sharing our knowledge with the industry and other interested parties. We are really excited about having Dr. Amaya in a position to help us further develop our technical communications strategies. This will result in CAPS doing more to contribute to the growth and development of our industry, the growth and improvement of our organization, and to provide real value to our customers by helping them make more informed and better business decisions relating to the products and services we offer.”

In addition to company communication developments, Bea hopes to pursue some article publications and conference presentations that combine her academic training and her industry experience, focusing on topics of organizational communication, data analysis, data visualization, technical communication, and organizational/strategic group theories in the near future.

“I’m really glad to have achieved this personal goal,” pointed out Dr. Amaya, “but I’m also excited about using what I’ve learned to find new ways to exert a positive impact on our business. And merging my academic training, my industrial experience, and the opportunities provided by CAPS seems like a perfect place to start.”
