Reece Group opens first Actrol site in New Zealand

The Reece Group has opened the door of their first Actrol site in New Zealand. The new store is the next step in the Reece’s expansion into the New Zealand refrigerant market following the acquisition of leading wholesaler Heatcraft’s New Zealand operations in May 2018.

The expansion of the company’s geographical footprint in New Zealand continued in July 2018 with the acquisition of 13 Edward Gibbon and Zip Plumbing Plus stores, extending their branch network to 30 stores.

After over a decade of trade around Auckland, the new stores provide the Reece Group with an opportunity to grow their customer base, brand and reputation across the country. “The network growth and workforce growth in branch and Engineering roles, along with the opportunity to apply what we already know about the refrigeration market puts us on the right path to make real impact in the region,” said Reece Group Region Leader for Actrol In New Zealand, Greg Brooker.

Commercial refrigeration has been a focus for the Reece Group since 2014 following their acquisition of Actrol. Recent investment in refrigeration technology in Australia has produced the revolutionary DC-3, a plug and play system for walk in/reach in cool rooms and the innovative MaxiPro, a press system suitable for refrigeration and air-conditioning application.
