Walter Meier continues its focus
Walter Meier (Climate UK) has announced a 26% increase in the sales of applied air conditioning systems in the last year – reinforcing the wisdom of the company’s recent strategic decision to focus on applied air conditioning and humidification products. In line with this move, the company will no longer supply single split system air conditioners except where they form an integral part of an engineered solution.
“For over 35 years our company has differentiated itself through an emphasis on engineering expertise and unparalleled technical support, and this continues to set us apart from other distributors,” explained Managing Director Mike Slattery. “The UK single split system market has now evolved to a point where added value engineering support is less important than price and this is at odds with Walter Meier’s group strategy.
“We are, however, ideally placed to add value to applied air conditioning projects where our expertise proves invaluable to both specifiers and contractors. For that reason we are now concentrating on our core business of VRF, humidification, chillers and hydronic systems – as well as our rapidly expanding after sales and spare parts operation. And, where single splits for specific areas form part of an integrated, engineered solution, we will continue to source and supply the most appropriate products.”
