Toshiba and Fujitsu deals end this year

UK: Air conditioning distributor AMP has informed customers that its long-standing distribution agreements with Toshiba and Fujitsu will both end this year.

Toshiba and Fujitsu have both terminated their long-standing distribution agreements following AMP’s purchase by rival Japanese manufacturer Panasonic on September 1.

In a letter to customers today, AMP has advised that its distribution agreement with Toshiba comes to an end on November 30 and the Fujitsu contract a month later on December 31.

The Welwyn-Garden-City based distributor says it will have full availability of both brands for supply until the respective termination date. It also reassures customers that any project work with delivery requirements after the termination dates will be honoured. Also, current warranties will be continued and honoured in the event of any future claims.

The future of AMP’s other brand, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, remains uncertain. AMP says they are still in negotiations regarding their distribution arrangement but insists that as things stand it is still fully supporting the brand.
