Taco Family of Companies acquires business activities of Heatlink Technical Solutions & Client Services
The Taco Family of Companies, a third-generation, family-owned HVAC products manufacturer, has completed the acquisition of the business activities of Sheffield-based Heatlink Technical Solutions Limited and Heatlink Client Services.
The acquisition will see the business activities of Heatlink, a provider of intelligent heating and hot water solutions, transferred to the UK arm of Taconova, A Taco Family Company. Taconova is a leading manufacturer of innovative hydraulic solutions for heating, plumbing and solar energy applications. This transaction will bring together the expertise and know-how of both companies and provide an even greater offering to its customers.
The company will offer the existing Heatlink range as well as the entire Taconova portfolio – including hydronic balancing, area heating systems, system technology, valves and accessories, and pump technology – in the UK.
Expansion of the existing partnership
“We are very pleased to be part of Taconova,” says Phil Harrison, Managing Director at Heatlink. “Like us, Taconova specializes in intelligent building technology solutions and, as an ISO-certified company, stands for quality and durability.
Having already worked with Taconova, we know this first-hand. Our proven turnkey solution, known in the market as ‘The Monitor Bundle’, already includes the HIU, a residential transfer station designed specifically for the UK market by Taconova.”
Increased local presence
Ralph Seewald, Managing Director at Taconova, is positive about the future. “With the foundation of Taconova in the UK and the acquisition of the Heatlink business we are creating an excellent basis for an even stronger local presence in the market. We are very pleased to be building on what is already an excellent partnership.
As we plan to serve all market segments such as wholesale, OEM, and project business, it is even more important to have a strong local presence. Therefore, it was clear to us that we would continue to work with the successful, existing Heatlink team and expand it with additional sales staff. We are particularly pleased that Phil Harrison will be taking on responsibility for Taconova UK.”
Taconova will provide a local presence in the UK and has ambitious plans to expand further in the future.
