Koldwave Names Illinois Company As Master Distributor

WESTFIELD, Mass. - Koldwave has named the Rankin Group of Lombard, Ill., as a master distributor for its Airmaster and Kompac lines of portable air conditioners and heat pumps.

Rankin will stock Koldwave portable air conditioning products at all six of its distribution locations. In addition, Koldwave products will be available through Rankin's network channels nationwide, and Rankin will be on hand to help existing Koldwave distributors during periods of peak demand for portable cooling products.

"We are very excited to have the Rankin Group on the Koldwave sales team," said Rob Atkocaitis, national sales manager for Koldwave cooling products. "They have been a nationally recognized powerhouse in the climate control industry for more than 20 years and will help us drive Koldwave sales throughout the nation."

Koldwave products are used in a range of industrial, commercial, and institutional applications, from factory and warehouse space, to offices, computer rooms, communications/switching rooms, laboratories and clinical facilities, and other installations. The company offers both air- and water-cooled product configurations, and the Koldwave line can be used as the primary source of cooling, as a supplement to the main cooling system, or as an emergency backup or temporary system.
