Mestek, the parent company of Mestex, established manufacturing in Dallas, Texas in 1986 for the production of cooling systems based on fresh air and evaporative cooling technologies. Several evaporative cooling patents later, the Mestex, Ltd company was established in 1995. In 2006 Mestex became a division of Mestek and has continued the operations started 20 years before that. With the solid financial backing of Mestek, Mestex has now grown to a multi-building facility in Dallas.
Today, Mestex provides AHUs, CRAHUs, MDC Cooling, and Product Prototyping.
Mestex Mission Critical began operations in 2012, building on the previous 46 years of experience with precision cooling and large scale evaporative cooling solutions. The same year, Mestex was asked to become a partner in a National Science Foundation research consortium for advanced cooling solutions in data centers. This research, combined with decades of experience, positioned Mestex Mission Critical to rapidly grow into a trusted supplier of cooling systems for hyperscale and modular data center owner / operators.Mestex has also been called upon to assist in the engineering and development of prototype cooling concepts for many of those same customers.
Mestex is an ISO 14001:2015 & ISO 9001:2015 company.
Cooling for your Mission Critical Needs
Bank of America
When the Bank of America needed to expand one of their data centers quickly using modular data centers they purchased a module that was comprised of four, 40 foot long, 12-ton sections to be connected on site. When B0fA needed another module, and the original manufacturer was unable to respond, Mestex Mission Critical was called upon to manufacture an identical system from old design documents. When Mestex delivered the units to the site they were perfectly aligned and ready for servers.
National Science Foundation
When a consortium of major IT and data center companies partnered with four top universities for the purpose of advancing research into data center cooling, they obtained the backing of the National Science Foundation. The only missing ingredient in the consortium was a company that was an active manufacturer of unique cooling solutions. Mestex Mission Critical was selected to not only contribute intellectual knowledge but to build and operate a test data center that would be cooled by fresh air, direct evaporative cooling, or indirect evaporative cooling. This collaboration has advanced knowledge of circuit board sensitivity to particulates, temperature/humidity conditions, and outside air filtering.
As part of the ever expanding use of satellites and space research NASA collects trillions of data points. Those data points end up in data centers, both large and small. One provider of modular data centers for NASA was shipping modules from their factory in Italy to various locations around the US. In an effort to shorten lead times and reduce costs Mestex Mission Critical was approached to partner with the Italians and build their product in Dallas. Mestex Mission Critical completed this project that employed EC fan arrays, direct evaporative cooling, and advanced controls. The project also involved prewiring for server power.
