Fläkt Woods ties the knot
Two of the biggest names in the ventilation industry have come together with the signing of an exclusive joint venture agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Fläkt Woods is now the sole UK distributor for the ebm-papst range of short cased and plate mounted axial fans.
Neil Yule, Director and UK BU Leader of Fläkt Woods said: “The union is a highly significant move for both companies with the new enterprise marking the beginning of a determined drive by the partners to consolidate their lead in the UK fan market”.
ebm-papst UK Ltd is the UK subsidiary of Europe’s largest motor and fan manufacturer. The German company has nearly half a century of research and development of fan technology and manufacture, and is the biggest investor in developing innovative products designed specifically for the HVAC customers.
Fläkt Woods is a leading European manufacturer of ventilation and air conditioning equipment, including adjustable pitch axial fans, air handling units and chilled beams. In the UK the company has well-established relationships with leading M&E consultants and contractors, and a national network of Express Distributors, providing ebm-papst with an ideal route to market for its complementary range of building services products.
Neil continues: “Fläkt Woods is dedicated to growing its business in Europe. As well as leveraging the technologies that we have developed for the Nordic markets, we are entering into selective joint venture agreements, and the ebm-papst deal provides our customers with a broader offering of systems and solutions, tying together the ebm-papst products with our broad distribution network.”
