Daikin and SK Sales form new partnership for air-con industry

22.01.21

Daikin, one of the world leaders in climate control systems, is pleased to announce its appointment of SK Sales as a new mass distribution channel (MDC) partner in the UK, with the wholesaler now an official stockist of Daikin’s solutions for the air-conditioning sector. 

At a time when air quality and ventilation is at the forefront of building design, the new partnership is a great result for the HVAC industry, providing installers and building service engineers with extended access to Daikin’s range of air-conditioning and ventilation products. 

A leading ventilation, fan and air handling wholesaler, SK Sales - part of the Airvance Group - has over 25 years’ experience in the UK HVAC sector. This new partnership signals SK Sales’ recent expansion into the air-conditioning market, led by newly appointed Head of Air Conditioning, Richard Sked. As an official MDC partner of Daikin, SK Sales will stock Daikin’s range of Sky Air and split air-conditioning systems throughout its nine UK wholesale outlets.

A total solution air-conditioning system, Daikin’s Sky Air provides heating, cooling, ventilation and air purification to medium or small commercial buildings. Engineered to provide comfort, the system’s floor and presence sensors direct air away from occupants to create the perfect airflow, while the variable refrigerant temperature prevents drafts.  

While Daikin’s flexible split systems form part of its air-conditioning offering for the home, providing both outstanding comfort, energy efficient technology and a variety of design options.

Speaking about the partnership, Nick Dray, Mass Distribution Channel Manager at Daikin, said: “We’re delighted to have SK Sales on board as one of our new MDC partners. At Daikin, the opportunity to take on a new partner who shares our vision of creating better and healthier internal environments was one we could not ignore. With its strong customer focus and the team’s extensive knowledge and experience, SK Sales is a perfect fit and we look forward to working with them.”

Richard Ward, Managing Director at SK Sales, added: “We’re extremely excited that SK Sales has been appointed as a Daikin Air Conditioning UK MDC partner. This is a really great moment, both for SK Sales and also our customers, with Daikin renowned throughout the industry for long-life product quality, technical leadership and overall reliability.

“Supported by the appointment of Richard Sked as our new Head of Conditioning, our recent expansion into air-conditioning means we can now offer an even greater service and, with the help of Daikin, continue to supply high-quality products, technical advice and support to the industry.”
