Daikin acquires Washington state AC suppliers
USA: Daikin North America has continued its acquisitions of key distributors in the USA with the purchase of Washington state companies Thermal Supply Inc and AirReps.
Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, Thermal Supply is a distributor of residential and light commercial Daikin, Goodman and Amana brand products in the Pacific Northwest. Founded in 1947, Thermal Supply has sold Goodman brand products since 2001 and Daikin brand products since 2014 in 24 locations located in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.
AirReps, based out of nearby Bellevue, Washington, supplies premium HVAC equipment, primarily to the commercial, industrial, and institutional sectors. AirReps was founded in 1950 and provides sales, warranty service, support and customer training focused on Daikin VRV and applied products.
“Bringing outstanding, knowledgeable, and reliable companies such as Thermal Supply and AirReps into Daikin Group will augment our presence and service in the region from residential to commercial projects,” said Takayuki (Taka) Inoue, executive vice president and chief sales and marketing officer.
The acquisitions are the latest in a series of acquisitions for Daikin that began in November 2020 with the purchase of Stevens Equipment Supply. In January of 2021, Daikin added Robinson Plumbing & Heating Supply Co and the largest HVAC distributor in the New York metropolitan area, ABCO HVACR Supply + Solutions.
