Dubai, UAE, 21 January 2019: Rheem has joined the Eurovent chapter in the Middle East, expanding the association’s membership base to more than 45 members, the association announced in a Press communiqué. Rheem is a nearly hundred-year-old American company that operates in three main business verticals: air conditioning, water heating and refrigeration, the communiqué said. The company owns brands such as Rheem, Ruud, Russell, Raypak, Richmond and Sure Comfort, the communiqué further said. In the Middle East region, Rheem has been operating for more than 30 years and has installed over a million tons of air conditioning equipment and thousands of water heaters, through its extensive distribution and service network, the communiqué added.
Mohammad Farooq, Managing Director, Rheem Middle East, said: “We appreciate the work Eurovent Middle East has done to gather the main industry players under one roof. It enables dialogue and discussions on the region’s regulatory development and provides us with opportunities to shape the future of this market, together with our fellow contenders, our clients and the authorities in the Middle East.”
According to Eurovent Middle East, the decision by Rheem also reflects the association’s approach of open industry representation, regardless of the origin of its members. Accounting for today’s globalised economy, Eurovent Middle East is focused on providing a neutral platform for the region’s HVACR industry, furthering cooperation and coordination between the industry and authorities, as well as key audiences for the market, the communiqué said.
Markus Lattner, Managing Director, Eurovent Middle East, said: “Every single member is an important part in the process we have started two years ago – bringing the industry together and working towards trust and understanding for the challenges of the future. We thank Rheem for the support and look forward to a fruitful cooperation.”
