THE LARGEST CARRIER JOINT VENTURE HVAC DISTRIBUTION COMPANY OUTSIDE USA
AHI Carrier formerly known as Air-conditioning & Heating International (AHI) became a Carrier Joint Venture Company on 18 December 2008. The partnership between Carrier and AHI dates back to December 1997, when the first agreement was signed for distribution of Carrier products in Russia and all of CIS countries (12 countries). In 1999, Carrier and Toshiba Air-conditioning entered into a joint venture and as a consequence the Toshiba range of air conditioning products were added for distribution in our territories. Success came early, and in 2000 Carrier rewarded us by expanding our distribution rights to East and Central Africa (15 countries). Since the creation of the “AHI Carrier” joint venture, more countries have been added including: the Middle East, Central Europe, Australia and New Zealand (18 countries).
AHI Carrier keeps a flexible and aggressive forward sales structure (sales offices & dealer network) and builds sales support functions in a centralised back office (Sharjah, U.A.E). The strategy focuses on economies of scale and allows AHI Carrier to quickly respond to opportunities in the sales area, building a competitive system of product specification and technical support, logistics coordination, finance & M.I.S. The most critical factor contributing to AHI’s successful track record of profitable growth has been its commitment to service and this commitment will become increasingly important in the future.
AHI Carrier runs TOTALINE stores in Australia, New Zealand & the Middle East where more stores are being added. TOTALINE stocks and sells a full range of HVACR parts, consumables and tools for residential and commercial applications.
AHI Carrier now distributes Carrier and Toshiba HVAC products in 44 countries across 3 continents.
