Vaillant secures first major AC distributor

UNITED REFRIGERATION has agreed to be the first main distributor of Vaillant air conditioning products in the UK.
United Refrigeration is a national wholesaler of refrigeration, air conditioning parts and equipment and one of the largest distributors in the world. Founded in 1947 in Philadelphia, United Refrigeration has locations in the United States, Canada, the UK and France.

United Refrigeration has nine UK outlets, which Vaillant will supply with a range of RAC systems (room air conditioning) and CAC (commercial air conditioning) systems.

Since the launch of Vaillant's UK air-conditioning division in 2006, its distribution has been carried out via some specialist wholesalers and Vaillant's direct sales division.

Vaillant will also be providing United Refrigeration and its customers with technical support for its products and training at the Vaillant centre of excellence, where needed.

Darren Finley, director of Vaillant's applied systems division, said of its distributor: 'They are an experienced and professional refrigeration and air conditioning company, by working together and forging a strong partnership, we can help provide more comfortable domestic and commercial environments across the country.'

Heath Langston, general manager of United Refrigeration UK, said 'We are committed to offering the widest range of equipment and components from the world's leading brands within the industry. We are delighted that Vaillant have chosen us to be their first major UK distributor.'
