Rheem to acquire Friedrich Air Conditioning

Rheem Manufacturing Company has announced it will purchase San Antonio, TX-based Friedrich Air Conditioning.

Friedrich, which was established in 1883, manufactures air conditioning, dehumidification and air purification products for residential and commercial buildings. The company has a plant in Monterrey, Mexico, and distribution centres in Texas and New Jersey.

Once the deal closes Friedrich will operate as a standalone business unit under the Rheem Global Air business. The acquisition was finalized in late August 2021.
