Güntner, a manufacturer of heat exchangers for refrigeration and air conditioning applications, and compressor specialist BITZER have signed an exclusive long-term distribution contract for the Australian and New Zealand markets.
The agreement covers both firms’ commercial and industrial refrigeration business lines in Australia and New Zealand.
Güntner will manufacture heat exchangers and BITZER will oversee their distribution. The product range will include both brands’ products: heat exchanger units from the commercial refrigeration segment will be marketed under BITZER’s Buffalo Trident brand, while those from the industrial refrigeration segment will be branded Güntner.
Units from the firm’s EPC business line (Energy & Process Cooling) are not covered under the agreement and will continue to be marketed by the Güntner Asia organization.
The agreement was signed with the joint aim of offering customers a broader product range and combining the know-how and expertise of both companies. The units will be manufactured at Güntner’s production site in Surabaya, Indonesia, and delivered to a new warehouse.
Buffalo Trident’s manufacturing operations at Sunshine Victoria will cease by the end of 2018.
