NTP Distribution Inc., in partnership with Keystone Automotive Operations Inc., announced the addition of Gree air conditioners to its product mix.
According to a press release, the launch marks the first aftermarket air conditioner offering for the company since the exit of Carrier from the market.
“We’ve partnered with Gree because they are the largest producer of air conditioners on the planet,” said Greg Boyd, president of Wilsonville, Ore.-based NTP. “They are not an electronics company who decided to cross over into air conditioning. They are air conditioning professionals who bring their expertise to the industry.”
NTP anticipates inventory being available in the first quarter of 2012.
“Far beyond being an ‘off the shelf’ air conditioner” adds Raymond Padgett, Category Manager for Keystone, “Gree has an organization that that designs, test and produces air conditioners. With three R&D organizations, 4,500 engineers and 300 laboratories, it is easy to see why they have produced over 3,000 technical patents. Gree is not a duplicator, they are truly an innovator.”
