Samsung takes space at Building Centre

UK: Samsung has taken space in London’s Building Centre to showcase its latest air conditioning portfolio.

The Building Centre, situated on Store Street, just off Tottenham Court Road, offers a central location for companies to promote innovation amongst all aspects of the built environment. The showroom will also provide a space for Samsung to meet customers and consultants and demo the latest products.

The Samsung Showroom will display some of its latest innovations: the 360 Cassette, 1-way Wind-Free Cassette, Wind-Free Wall RAC/FJM unit, 5kW Monobloc EHS, DVM S Water 20/30HP unit and DVM S Hydro Module unit. The latest DVM S Eco HR 3-pipe mini VRF is being added to the stand when it officially launches in March. The showroom is on the basement level directly opposite a hot desk and internet facility for Samsung partners.  It also has a large conference space, where Samsung will be hosting future product launch events.

Perry Jackson, head of air conditioning at Samsung said, “The space available to us at The Building Centre is already proving extremely valuable. Having a central hub to meet with customers and consultants is so important and allows us to deliver the best possible service we can. It has given our London sales team a working base and they are already making great use of the facility.”
