Leeds branch expands TF Solutions network

UK: Air conditioning and refrigeration distributor TF Solutions has opened a new branch in Leeds, as the first step in an expansion of its branch network.

The new 1,500m² facility on the City Park Industrial Estate, which opens today, expands the company’s existing network of branches in Stockport, Burton on Trent and Dunstable.

The new Leeds operation is headed up by Phil Houghton who joined TF earlier this year after 20 years with the Wolseley group, latterly as branch manager of Climate Center, Leeds.

“TF Solutions have been a front runner in the industry for a while now, and the opportunity to join this successful growing business was too good to pass on,” he commented.

The Leeds branch is said to be the first of a planned expansion of the business following its acquisition by builders’ merchant group Travis Perkins last year.

TF Solutions MD Andy Cherrill said: “The Leeds operation is the first of our new branch openings planned for this year, and with further branch announcements due over the coming months, along with new additions to our product range, we will be continuing to develop a level of customer service and support to our customers across the UK that is second to none in the industry.”

The new branch is at City Park Industrial Estate, Gelderd Road, Leeds LS12 6DR. Tel: 0113 487 1985.
