The partnership commenced at the start of January 2020 with AUK Distribution strengthening the recent collaboration between Fujitsu General Air Conditioning UK and Italian group GI Holdings (GIH), established in 2019.
Formed in 2009 as a specialist distributor of Airwell products, AUK Distribution expanded in 2012 to supply GIH ranges such as Clint, Montair and Novair directly to the UK. The company supports its air conditioning and refrigeration portfolio with an experienced team offering pre and post sales services including design, commissioning and site assistance.
Darryl Smith, managing director at AUK Distribution, said: “We are very much looking forward to working with Fujitsu and building a long and successful business relationship.
“Fujitsu have an excellent reputation and I’m pleased to now offer a complete range of Fujitsu air conditioning products. They have been constantly at the forefront of the air conditioning industry for many years. Following the joint venture between Fujitsu and GIH and given our long-standing affiliation with GIH, we are sure it will be an ideal partnership.”
Nick Wilks, national distribution manager, Fujitsu General Air Conditioning UK, said: “AUK is highly experienced in both the applied and air conditioning markets. Our recent collaboration with GIH and the introduction of the Clint and Montair products to the UK will be strengthened through both their experience and capability.”
Mr Wilks concluded by saying: “This partnership is an important step in continuing to grow the Fujitsu brand.”
