HRP and Samsung have announced that they have extended their distribution agreement for Samsung Air Conditioning products in the UK.
As a strategic partner, HRP will provide a complete package of training, support, stockholding and delivery to contractors throughout the UK as well as stockholding and delivery of split systems for other Samsung distributors.
The partnership, which started in 2009, will lead to an increase in readily available stock in the UK to help Samsung broaden its customer base as well as supplying its existing contractors.
Committed to providing industry leading products that suit customers’ needs, HRP will also be the only UK stockist to hold a full range of Samsung split systems, which will provide contractors instant access to the comprehensive range and innovative features which Samsung’s air conditioning products offer.
“HRP has the resources and commitment to help drive our ambitious plans to increase our market share in the UK,” said Dave McSherry, Head of Air Conditioning for Samsung UK. “We are introducing innovative and energy-efficient systems which provide exciting opportunities in the current market.”
HRP provides Samsung product training from its technical centre in Slough and throughout the UK using mobile rigs.
As part of the extended agreement, HRP will deliver training using bespoke Samsung training riggs in all their 16 UK locations to provide guidance and support to installation contractors and engineers.
This training will enhance and compliment Samsung’s two dedicated training sites, including the newly-opened centre at Eastworth House in Chertsey.
Additionally, an accredited installer scheme will shortly be launched to provide extended service to contractors who meet required technical standards and commit to the relevant training courses.
To support this enhanced offering, HRP have recently appointed Dugie McKerrow as Head of Air Conditioning Brands to liaise with manufacturers and specifiers, and head the enlarged product support team.
“Samsung have a competitive range of systems which covers virtually every need in the marketplace.” said Mandy Pilgrim, HRP Group Managing Director, “We look forward to working closely with themto introduce specifiers and contractors to the new benefits of Samsung technology.”
