Direct Expansion Solutions (DXS), a North American HVAC manufacturers’ representative that specializes in variable refrigerant flow (VRF) implementation and design, announced today that it placed 42nd on the Texas A&M University’s annual Aggie 100 list. Compiled by the Mays Business School’s Center for New Ventures, the Aggie 100 list identifies, recognizes and celebrates the 100 fastest growing Aggie-owned or Aggie-led businesses in the world. DXS partner, Mike Donovan, graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering in 1996.

“We are proud to be included on the annual Aggie 100 list for the second consecutive year,” said Donovan. “DXS has experienced a phenomenal growth since my partners Thomas and Keith McLaughlin and I launched the company in 2007. This award provides validation for our decision to exclusively specialize in the variable refrigerant flow technology and recognizes the whole team’s dedication to an excellent customer service.”

In 2007, DXS founders saw a rapidly growing demand for green buildings and high efficiency HVAC equipment. They knew VRF technology could meet those requirements while also reducing operating costs and improving design flexibility. The company has grown steadily, with compounded annual growth rate of 57 percent, as engineers, architects, developers and building owners gain comfort with VRF systems, expanding its presence from Central to Southeast and North Texas with offices in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio.
