Panasonic terminates distribution deal with TF

UK: Panasonic UK has announced an end to its air conditioning distribution agreement with TF Solutions.

No reason has been given for the termination of the agreement, which has been in place since 2007.

In a brief statement from Panasonic, UK country manager Alfredos Armaos, said: “We would like to thank TF Solutions for their support and efforts over the last few years and wish them all the best in the future. Customers can rest assured that Panasonic will honour any ongoing agreements and warranties regarding Panasonic products which will be dealt with in the usual way.”

TF Solutions has been making a number of investments since its acquisition by Travis Perkins in 2017. Already this year it has added Mitsubishi Electric and Samsung to its air conditioning product portfolio, which also includes Fujitsu.
