COMPRESSOR manufacturers Sanden International and Unicla International have forged a strategic alliance under which Unicla’s heavy-duty compressors in 200cc-675cc range will be co-branded with Sanden, which will use its comprehensive distribution network to meet the expected high demand for more powerful compressors from the rapidly expanding public road transport sector as well as other heavy-duty markets.
The alliance was finalised at the recent MACS 2018 Training Event and Trade Show in Orlando, Florida, in front of 1200 mobile air-conditioning sector experts comprising designers and manufacturers of systems, components, tools and equipment, and professionals responsible for installation, maintenance, diagnostics and repair.
“This alliance between friendly competitors is a perfect opportunity for Unicla to showcase our high-quality heavy-duty compressors on a much bigger global footprint than we could have achieved on our own,” said Unicla director Mark Mitchell.
Mark Padwick, chairman of the Sanden Global Aftermarket Sales Team added: “With this strategic alliance, Sanden will be able to offer a wide range of models, from small capacity compressors to the massive UWX660. This, along with our global network of technical support and logistics will allow us to provide unmatched product breadth and service.”
