RectorSeal is Aspen distributor in Canada

aspen-pumps-300x184UK: Aspen Pumps has appointed RectorSeal, the US manufacturer of sealants, as its distributor in Canada. 

Houston, Texas-based RectorSeal is already the US distributor of Aspen’s condensate pumps, an agreement that was part of RectorSeal’s 2011 assets acquisition of US hvacr product manufacturer, Airtec Products.

According to William Flynn, RectorSeal’s vice president of international sales, the company has since more than doubled Aspen Pumps’ US volume and maintained its status as the US market leader.

RectorSeal is now able to offer its Canadian contractor customers Aspen’s entire range of condensate pumps for the growing ductless mini split and VRF equipment market.

RectorSeal will support the Aspen Pump line with internal customer and technical support and product training through its existing wholesale distribution network.

Besides Fortress and Aspen, RectorSeal offers a selection of ductless mini split and VRF installation accessories that include RectorSeal and Big Foot condenser mounts, Paircoil line sets, the NoKink line set connection aid, Safe-T-Switch  and AquaGuard condensate shut-off switches, ACTabs DMSS drain pan biocide, Novent  and GasGuard code-mandated locking refrigerant caps for air conditioning refrigerant access ports, and condensate gravity drain hoses and traps.
