AET seeks underfloor AC distributors

UK: Underfloor air conditioning company, AET Flexible Space, is looking to extend its global footprint by taking on a number of new distributors.

Founded in 1993, the company’s flexible space air conditioning system has a global portfolio of over 300 projects. These include notable developments such as The Center, Hong Kong’s 5th highest skyscraper, the Willis Building in Ipswich designed by Norman Foster, Microsoft in Shanghai and numerous other prestigious buildings across the world.

AET recently signed a distributor agreement with PT Prima Solusi Jayantara, a long established Indonesian company with experience in supplying to the construction sector. This enabled AET Flexible Space to extend its already significant presence in the region.

Distributors are provided with a comprehensive support package which includes training, marketing and new business development. AET has a professional training site in London but says it is also able to offer on-site training at distributor locations in order to support the initial on-boarding process.
