Haier HVAC Solutions has announced that Hawco has become its initial UK distributor upon its move to re-entry into the UK market. A long standing distribution channel for air conditioning and refrigeration products, Hawco sales will focus on the residential and commercial split ranges. Still, full access to VRF and the air to water product ranges will also be available.
Bob Cowlard, Haier HVAC Solutions european general manager, said: “This agreement with Hawco is spearheading our return to the UK market. Hawco is a well-known and trusted distributor in the component, accessory and air conditioning fields. It’s great that they’ve recognised the value and technical excellence found in our ac products. I believe that this partnership will go from strength to strength over the years. With Brexit behind us, this is the right time for us to re-enter the UK market. We have the right products for the market, and this will be the first of several announcements regarding our sales channels.”
Hawco sales director, Phil Baker, said: “As part of our plans to grow our air conditioning business, we wanted to bring something new to the UK market. The more we learnt about Haier, the more we liked it.
“Outside the UK, Haier is a well-established brand with impressive growth in Spain, Germany, Italy and France, so we knew they had a winning formula. Great products, quality production, competitively priced – make them a perfect partner for us. But we also understand how important it is to fully support customers long-term, with the reassurance of a six-year warranty on all R32 single and multi-splits, and offer UK technical support and easy access to parts and spares.
“With Brexit behind us, this is the right time for us to re-enter the UK market. We have the right products for the market, and this will be the first of several announcements regarding our sales channels.”
