AUK Distribution to sell Fujitsu air conditioners

UK: Fujitsu General Air Conditioning UK has formed a partnership with Newcastle-based UK ac supplier AUK Distribution, which will see AUK selling Fujitsu air conditioners in the UK.

The partnership follows Fujitsu’s collaboration with Italian group GI Holdings (GIH), whose products are also distributed in the UK by AUK. Under the new partnership AUK will now also sell Fujitsu products in the UK – joining a network of seven existing Fujitsu distributors.

Formed in 2009 as a specialist Airwell distributor, AUK Distribution expanded in 2012 to supply GIH ranges such as Clint, Montair and Novair directly to the UK. This is supported with pre- and post-sales services including design, commissioning and site assistance.

AUK Distribution MD Darryl Smith described the agreement as “an ideal partnership”.

Fujitsu General Air Conditioning UK’s national distribution manager Nick Wilks said the partnership was an important step in continuing to grow the Fujitsu brand.

“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,” he added.
