Reece has officially taken ownership of Heatcraft’s New Zealand operations, after announcing the acquisition from Swedish company Beijer Ref at the end of March 2018.
Daniel Palumbo, Reece Group general manager of operations, says: “We’re excited to recently take ownership of Heatcraft’s operations in New Zealand and work with our new colleagues to continue providing leading HVAC&R products to our customers.”
The acquisition expands the Reece Group’s presence across the North and South Island from 11 to 18 locations. And it’s a move that the company has been wanting to make for some time.
Reece Group CEO and managing director Peter Wilson says: “With a comprehensive product range, the acquisition of Heatcraft’s New Zealand operations will enable us to build on our solid base in the region and broaden our customer offering.”
