SIG has acquired SK Sales, a UK supplier of specialist air-handling products.

The move will result in the rebranding of existing Air Trade Centre branches in the coming months, which will expand SK Sales’ branch network to 22 sites throughout the UK. SK Sales will also be able to offer SIG’s own brand products to its national customer base.

The acquisition of SK Sales complements and expands SIG’s strategy to offer a wider network, product offering and area of expertise for the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning market. As a combined business under the SK Sales brand, SIG customers will now benefit from a one-stop-shop experience with access to an increased range of products. SIG partners will also benefit from new revenue opportunities.

Norwich-based SK Sales brings 24 years of experience to SIG. Paul Gordon, managing director of SIG Distribution, said: “We are delighted to welcome Alan, Jason and the whole SK Sales team into SIG.

“SK Sales is an exciting business and provides us with a platform for further branch expansion. SK also has a strong customer service ethic so it is an excellent fit for our organisation. SIG has a major presence in mainland Europe in the air management category and this acquisition strengthens our overall market position.”

Alan Taylor and Jason Kemp, joint managing directors of SK Sales, agreed: “We are both very pleased that we will continue to lead SK Sales as part of SIG. We have always had a strong commitment to our colleagues at SK and feel there is now significant opportunity for them to realise their ambitions.

“As part of SIG, we see tremendous potential for branch network expansion and product ranges. We would like to thank all of our suppliers and customers for their support over the years and give our assurance that we will continue to provide the highest levels of service, to which they have become accustomed.”
