Mitsubishi Electric appoints TF as reseller

UK: Mitsubishi Electric has added air conditioning distributor TF Solutions as a new value added reseller for its complete range of HVAC products. 

TF Solutions, which also acts as a distributor for Panasonic and Fujitsu air conditioners, will offer the complete range of Mitsubishi Electric products including City Multi, Mr Slim and M-Series air conditioning, Lossnay ventilation and controls products, heating products, air handling units and e-Series chillers.

The appointment follows Mitsubishi’s loss of wholesaler Dean & Wood last month, which announced it was to concentrate on MHI.

Established in 2001, TF Solutions operates out of four branches in the North West, Yorkshire, Midlands and South East, with a fifth soon to open in the South West. It became part of the Travis Perkins builders’ merchant group in 2017.

“Mitsubishi Electric is a pioneer in the UK HVAC market with products that deliver energy efficient solutions for almost any situation,” said Andy Cherrill, “We are delighted to now be part of the family and look forward to enhancing the service we can offer our own customers.”

TF joins Mitsubishi’s sales network which includes distributor Kooltech and fellow value added resellers Logicool, Fridge Spares Wholesale and Pacair.
