Refrigeration specialist Husky has signed a deal with commercial freezer manufacturer AHT
The agreement will see Husky products distributed by AHT outlets worldwide. Within the UK the agreement establishes AHT as the exclusive importer to the UK of all Husky products.
AHT is keen to develop sales of its eco-friendly equipment in the UK which has been restricted until now because of problems finding maintenance engineers with an understanding of R600 and R290, the non-greenhouse gases used as refrigerants. All future service will be carried out by Husky’s service company.
Husky recently launched a new, eco-friendly range which can save retailers – from superstores to independents - up to 45 per cent on their electricity bills.
In future, chillers and refrigeration units will be branded AHT Husky and will be among the most environmentally friendly available, reflecting the green credentials of both chief executives. Freezers will retain the AHT name.
Per Hyldahl, chief executive of AHT Gmbh said: “Husky’s achievement in developing low energy and environmentally friendly equipment is quite remarkable.
“Like us they have a commitment to the environment that goes way beyond commercial motives. For AHT our reputation is of paramount importance and finding a refrigeration company with the commitment level of the Husky team was a challenge.”
