Modine Manufacturing Company (NYSE: MOD) has named Jonas Caino as general manager of its data centre business.

In this role, Caino has been tasked with leading the company’s data centers business and will report to Eric McGinnis, vice president of building HVAC.

Modine provides data center cooling solutions under the Airedale brand name.

Caino joined Airedale International Air Conditioning Ltd, a UK subsidiary of Modine, where he served as the head of data centre solutions for Europe and was named sales director for EMEA & APAC earlier this year.

He has held various commercial roles spanning a 25-year career, with the latter 10 years in senior management positions.

Caino joined Airedale from Etix Everywhere (Vantage DC) where he held the positions of global vice president of sales and UK country director.

He has also worked for Schneider Electric and Geist Global (Vertiv), amongst others.

McGinnins said: “Jonas brings deep experience and expertise to this role, and is the right leader to support our growth strategy for our data center business.

“In addition to having responsibility for our UK business, Jonas will also lead our global expansion of data center products to the US and Western Europe.

“We are currently expanding our manufacturing capacity for chillers in the UK and will fully utilize our plant in Guadalajara, Spain for computer room cooling products, such as computer room air handlers and fan walls.

“We are also producing certain of these products in the US, with plans to have full production capability in the next 12 to 18 months. We have superior products for the data center market and a global manufacturing footprint to support our growth targets.”
