Beijer Ref is set to acquire Australian air conditioning distribution company Complete Air Supply (CAS).
CAS is a manufacturer and distributor of ducting and associated fittings and is an existing supplier to Beijer Ref in Australia.
The distributor has three branches in Queensland and 40 employees with annual sales topping $US16 million.
Beijer Ref already has a strong presence in Australia with Kirby and ACD Trade.
Beijer Ref CEO, Per Bertland, said Australia is an important market for the refrigeration wholesaler.
“This acquisition greatly enhances our position in the residential ducted market and, more broadly into the commercial segment of our industry, CAS’s products, experience and expertise will complement our air conditioning product offering as well as adding to our existing customer base,” he said.
The acquisition will be completed February 1, 2021.
