Climatec’s HVAC solutions business announced it will now go to market as Varitec Solutions. The move is a result of Bosch GmbH’s acquisition of Climatec’s Building Technology Group earlier this year. As Daikin Applied’s equipment sales representative in the Arizona, New Mexico, and West Texas regions, Varitec is positioned for growth in the region and will help move Daikin one step closer to its goal of becoming the number one applied HVAC leader in North America.
President and CEO Jack Kucera says the new name is a nod to the single most transformative technology he’s seen in nearly four decades. “As I looked at our business I saw more and more areas where ‘vari’ and ‘tec’ apply to so manyaspects of the solutions we bring to customers. Specifically, variable frequency drives, variable flow with both air and water, variable speed compressors, variable dimensioning, and more recently Variable Refrigerant Volume (VRV) have reshaped the industry and created opportunities for building owners and Daikin representatives,” he said. “The combined presence of ‘variable’ and advanced ‘technology’ in the HVAC business aligns with our focus and direction going forward.
“We’re excited to open this next chapter of our company’s story,” said Kucera. “With this change, we will capitalize ongrowth opportunities that allow us to enhance our service and support of our customers. And last, but certainly not least,in our work with Daikin we are strengthened by solutions that expand our toolbox to address the needs of our clients.”
“We’re confident in Jack and the team as they embark on this new path as Varitec Solutions,” said Kirk Thorne, executive vice president, sales and marketing, at Daikin Applied. “Their foresight and planning to take the business into the future is proven and this change positions them to bring a new level of differentiated technology and services to their market.”
