Major brands unite under Reznor
Each of the brands form part of Nortek Global HVAC UK. By combining their respective offerings and providing a single point of contact for all HVAC solutions, the business intends to simplify the customer experience.
The HVAC brand transition coincides with a number of new product developments, and a portfolio that is now fully compliant with the Energy related Products (ErP) regulations.
Simon Parker, president and general manager of Nortek Global HVAC UK’s Light Commercial Division heads up the Reznor brand in the UK and beyond. He said: “We want to better serve our customers. By offering a diverse but cohesive portfolio, we can offer clarity for our customers by taking out complexity and portfolio duplications. We are focused on becoming a solution provider, rather than just a product supplier. By unifying under the Reznor brand, we can commit to meeting our customers’ expectations, delivering a superior customer experience, and building upon Reznor to become the preferred HVAC brand.”
