Trane, a global manufacturer of indoor heating systems, has entered into a new distribution agreement with electrical and industrial tech company, JMG Limited in Nigeria. The move is expected to significantly expand and strengthen the distribution capacity of Trane in Nigeria.
The launch of Trane in Nigeria was announced at an event dubbed the MEGA CLIMA exhibition, dedicated to the refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation and heating sector, which took place in the Landmark Exhibition Center in Lagos this July.
JMG Limited and Trane exhibited the Trane brand and conducted a seminar for the professional in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC market).
Under the agreement, JMG Limited will be the authorized distributor of Trane residential and light commercial systems in Nigeria through a dedicated team of experienced sales and services engineers.
The deal allows JMG Limited to complete its strategic development in the building infrastructure segment in order to offer a One Stop solution to developers from power, electrical products, mobility equipment and now efficient air-conditioning systems.
“We believe in selecting a Distributor who reflects Trane’s commitment to environmental sustainability with a strong focus on understanding and delivering value to customers, and the region they operate in,” commented Mr. Hazem Bouzaiane, Africa Distributor Management Leader, Trane, following the announcement.
“We are pleased to begin this journey with JMG Limited and will be very proactive in working with them to deliver the Trane promise of energy efficiency and reliability to the region,” he added.
According to Mr. Ramzi Dabaghi, Head of Power Solutions and HVAC Division Manager at JMG Limited, the HVAC industry is a large sector that covers system design, operation and maintenance. Like most industries within the construction business, the HVAC sector has been gradually growing lately, with the end user spending substantial business expansion plans and supporting new enterprises in the industry.
“Our interest in the HVAC business arises after we have monitored the increasing market trend and identifying the areas/businesses that will benefit from our service. Add to this our concern to reduce energy consumption and to build a healthier environment,” he explained.
“We are quite aware that the success of any business lies in the foundation on which the business is built on, which is why we are confident enough that the JMG Limited – Trane partnership in the HVAC sector will succeed and develop rapidly,” Dabaghi concluded.
