Swedish refrigeration wholesaler Beijer Ref has signed a three-year partnership agreement with U.S.-based component manufacturer Emerson, formalizing a long-standing arrangement to distribute Emerson’s products in European markets.

The agreement covers 25 markets where Beijer Ref is present, and more than 260 branches in these markets.

“Emerson distributes its products in Europe through a selective network of authorized wholesalers,” said Rainer Dietrich, Emerson’s Vice President for Sales in Europe, in a statement. “Beijer Ref has been a key wholesale partner for many years. With this partnership we can provide top-class service to our contractors, installers and end users.”

“Distribution agreements with key suppliers are very important to Beijer Ref,” noted Beijer Ref CEO Per Bertland in a press release on June 16. “To give customers a competitive offer, the mix of brands is carefully composed and provides Beijer Ref with unique breadth in its product range on the market. Emerson has been one of our key suppliers for many years, and I am really pleased that we have signed this agreement.”

Emerson manufactures a variety of products for both commercial and industrial refrigeration, including CO2 compressors and controllers.

Beijer Ref is the parent company of another CO2 specialist, SCM Frigo, which manufactures chillers, transcritical racks and booster systems.
