Rheem Acquires Friedrich Air Conditioning

Rheem has acquired Friedrich Air Conditioning from Monomoy Capital Partners. Friedrich provides high-end air conditioning solutions and will be a standalone business unit within the Rheem Global Air business.

“Growth by acquisition is part of our ongoing strategy,” said Chris Peel, president and CEO at Rheem. “The addition of Friedrich to the Rheem family of brands will complement our existing business lines, increase our commercial and residential air conditioning offerings and expand our presence in the hospitality and multifamily segments of our market.”

Friedrich’s room air conditioning solutions are designed for use in homes, hotels and multifamily buildings, among other applications. Headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, Fredrich’s manufacturing facilities are located in Monterrey, Mexico, with distribution centers based in Texas and New Jersey.

“Rheem’s innovation, commitment to quality and dedication to sustainability align perfectly with Friedrich,” said Chuck Campbell CEO at Friedrich. “Additionally, Rheem’s history of investing in and strongly supporting its business units gives us great promise for our future together.”
