SIG AIR HANDLING IS GROWING!

Zaventem, 26 May 2016 – SIG Air Handling opened its 10th Belgian distribution point in Ostend this year. A noteworthy achievement that now gives the company no fewer than 100 distribution sites throughout Europe.

SIG Air Handling offers expertise on improving air quality in interiors, both at home and at work. A healthy air quality in an indoor environment is vitally important for people´s comfort, safety and health.  
SIG Air Handling therefore offers customised solutions for keeping the quality of the indoor climate healthy. For example, it works out complete solutions for HVAC projects of professional installers and design offices by supplying a complete line of gratings, fans, air conditioning, fire dampers and air groups. Thanks to its expertise in the various market segments, SIG Air Handling offers applications for different types of interiors, ranging from offices and warehouses to stores, hospitals and schools.  In addition, SIG Air Handling wishes to even better support its customers by expanding the product and system offer, including climate ceilings, parking garage and tunnel ventilation and new service activities.
 
A unique, fast distribution.
SIG Air Handling has already opened many distribution points so as to optimally support its professional installers. Ostend can now boast of being home to the 10th distribution point in Belgium. On the European level SIG Air Handling has also developed a strong network, with a total of over 100 distribution centres.   
These distribution points confirm SIG Air Handling´s steadfast determination to improve indoor air quality. Thanks to the presence of SIG Air Handling on the local market, installers get quick access to both the right products and up-to-date product knowledge. Flexibility and technical support are also major advantages. At SIG Air Handling´s one-stop shop, customers will also find easy and always accessible e-commerce solutions.

Via its distribution points, SIG Air Handling makes more than 4,000 products immediately available to installers, for example when they urgently require fittings. The product line includes over 15,000 articles in all, and orders can be guaranteed for delivery to the construction site within 24 hours.
