LOUISVILLE – StrionAir Inc., a Louisville-based air purification systems company, has been acquired by Connecticut-based Carrier Corp., a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Founded in 1997, StrionAir developed and patented enhanced electronic filtration methods and products, including a whole-house air purifier that works to capture and kill airborne germs, viruses and mold.
