SIG AIR HANDLING IS GROWING IN SIZE, PRODUCT OFFERING AND EXPERTISE

Zaventem, 22 September 2016 – What began life in 2001 as Ouest Ventil in France, has now expanded to become SIG Air Handling with over a hundred subsidiaries all over Europe. This expert in heating, ventilation and airconditioning (HVAC) supports customers and partners with professional advice and specialised systems. Recently, SIG Air Handling has also been developing and distributing products under its own CAIROX brand. In addition, this socially responsible company aims to provide healthy indoor air in cooperation with European organisations like EVIA and EFA.

SIG Air Handling is developing into a leading player on the European market for Heating, Ventilation & Airconditioning products. Last year, the company took over three HVAC companies: HC Group (in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom), Interland Techniek (in the Netherlands) and Profant Lufttechnik Handels GmbH (in Austria). Since 17 August 2016, BLH GmbH (Germany) joined the group – and there are further plans to expand on the German market. SIG Air Handling can now call on over a hundred distribution points in Europe. A strong network, which means that customers quickly obtain the right products and advice.

Healthy indoor air for everyone
With the motto ‘Improving air because we care’ SIG Air Handling's business aims to find energy-efficient total solutions and better indoor air quality. Together with architects, designers and project developers, SIG Air Handling devises ventilation systems that ensure that people can breathe healthy indoor air at work, at home and during their leisure time. To achieve this, the experts concerned focus on three elements: air improvement, air movement and air diffusion. In addition to specialist advice and partnerships for total projects, customers come to SIG Air Handling for its extensive and unique range of over 15,000 products. This extensive product range is available via our distribution outlets or can be ordered via a user-friendly webshop.

Own brand and corporate social responsibility
This European company continues to grow; from specialised service and project solutions to production and assembly facilities, and just recently, it introduced its own brand - CAIROX. This means that SIG Air Handling is now developing and distributing products for air improvement, air movement and air diffusion under strong own labels, thus further strengthening its service provision and its position on the European market.

In the field of Corporate social responsibility, SIG Air Handling is making its contribution: The company is working actively in various working groups of EVIA, the European Ventilation Industry Association, and in that context is working towards better European standards for Indoor Air Quality. With that aim in mind, it is also working with EFA, the European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients’ Associations. The company aims to draw attention to the issue of indoor air quality and encourage Europe to take appropriate measures. Because everyone is entitled to and benefits from healthy indoor air.
