LG Electronics has appointed Space Air Ltd as an important new distributor to its business in the UK.
Space Air Ltd is a new company, built on the foundations of Space Airconditioning plc which went into voluntary administration at the end of 2016. The new company is headed by Neil Afram, who was MD of the previous company.
Space Air Ltd will operate from offices in Guildford and Bristol offering national coverage.
Head of distribution for LG, Thain Gummer, said: “This appointment is very exciting partnering us with one of the most influential individuals in the air conditioning marketplace. We look forward to supporting Space Air Ltd and to working closely together as a team.
“They believe our range of equipment is well suited to their business and the huge strides we have taken in the last couple of years have impressed them as much as the sector at large. It became clear during our conversations that they are particularly excited by our engineering design support capability and anticipate working closely with the engineering team.”
Neil Afram said: “We have been impressed by the high levels of innovation and manufacture that have been evident from LG in the last few years. They make equipment to extremely high standards and build quality, which we recognise and applaud.”
He added: “It’s worth noting that all LG products are Eurovent certified – that’s important to us. LG is a huge global brand, renowned for high quality electronic products and this extends to air conditioning equipment and in particular to its controls which are the envy of most manufacturers. We’re looking forward to heading into a new period of growth in the air conditioning sector alongside LG.”
