Goodman Distribution, a subsidiary of Daikin Industries, manufacturer of heating, cooling and refrigerant products, announced the purchase of Robinson Plumbing & Heating Supply Co., an existing distributor of Goodman, Amana and Daikin brand residential unitary and light commercial products in the Northeast.
“The acquisition of Robinson supports our growth strategy and is a key step in expanding our distribution footprint in the Northeast,” said Ardee Toppe, senior vice president and president of Goodman, Quietflex and PTAC Business Units.
Robinson will continue to supply and promote the full line of residential unitary and light commercial Goodman, Amana and Daikin ductless HVAC products, as well as controls, air quality products, parts, plumbing and accessories throughout its seven branch locations across Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
“We are confident our new alignment with Goodman will provide more personal and professional growth and learning opportunities for our employees and enhance training and technical service for the benefit of our valued customers,” said Russell Robinson, who will remain with the company as a strategic advisor after serving as Robinson Supply president.
Robinson will maintain its Fall River, Massachusetts headquarters and management structure throughout its existing branch locations.
“Goodman and Robinson have enjoyed a great relationship since 1994 working with one another as separate entities,” Toppe said. “As we embark on this new chapter, I am confident our greatest successes are ahead of us as part of the same organization.”
The announcement comes on the heels of Daikin’s November acquisition of Stevens Equipment Supply, LLC and its 18 branch locations across 13 states, from Minnesota to Nevada.
