Carrier believes the recent acquisition of Viessmann Climate Solutions enables it to offer an unrivalled range of products and solutions to the market.

The customer event was hosted by Carrier Solutions UK (formerly Toshiba Carrier UK) and David Dunn, Sales Director Northern Europe Carrier RLC EMEA, described the new structure as “one team with one point of contact for multi-brand support’’.

He added: “We’re thrilled to welcome Viessmann Climate Solutions alongside our established brands. This combination of brand powerhouses positions us to offer an unparalleled portfolio of products and solutions to the market across all tiers, opening up exciting new opportunities for our partners.”

The newly formed Carrier RLC EMEA includes Carrier, Toshiba, Viessmann, Riello and Vokèra. According to Dunn, the company intends to become the global leader in climate solutions with a product range that targets all sectors by sharing technology and engineering capabilities and an increased depth of industry and product knowledge.
