ClimateCenter to supply Toshiba air conditioning across UK, following a wholesaler supply deal
The range will include Toshiba air conditioning equipment, including residential and light commercial products, splits, VRF systems and air-to-water heat pumps to customers through its UK network of 46 branches.
Toshiba products will be stocked alongside Climate Center’s existing air conditioning ranges from Daikin and Fujitsu, completing the supplier’s offering in this important and growing sector of the market.
Key products in the Toshiba line-up include the company’s mini VRF system and the recently launched VRF Super Modular Multi-System Intelligent (SMMSi) heat pump, that are considered the most efficient of its kind on the market with a SEER of 6.41 and COP of 4.68.
Launched in October last year, the SMMSi is a world-first in having three compressors each equipped with a dedicated inverter. This enables full load-sharing at all times and optimisation of efficiency savings as a result of part-load operation using all three compressors.
Climate Centre will also supply Toshiba’s recently launched high efficiency ESTIA air-to-water heat pump system, which has a class-leading COP of 4.61. This will also be available through Pipe Center.
ESTIA has Microgeneration Certificate Scheme (MCS) approval, and is the only heat pump of its kind currently listed on the Enhanced Capital Allowances (ECA) register.
Ian Carroll, Climate Center’s National Sales Manager for Cooling, said: “Toshiba is a great brand, and highly regarded for the quality and technical excellence of its products. The combination of premium build, innovative engineering and brand popularity is a winning formula – which we believe perfectly compliments and completes our existing air conditioning ranges.”
David Dunn, Commercial Director at Toshiba Carrier UK Ltd, said: “We are delighted to have made the agreement with Wolseley UK Limited. It extends our supply network across the UK and Ireland, and adds a powerful new wholesale route to support and augment our established sales and distribution network.”
He added: “Climate Center has very experienced and knowledgeable staff and provides air conditioning customers across the UK with a high level of technical support. This is essential with today’s advanced systems, to make sure customers get the right product.
“We look forward to working with our new partners at Wolseley’s Climate and Pipe Center to grow sales over the coming months and years.”
