Daikin UK has acquired heating service company Robert Heath Heating. The acquisition consolidates its position in the renewable heating market, and will serve to strengthen Daikin’s residential heating service network in the UK. It also aligns with Daikin’s strategy to play a leading role in the UK’s transition towards low-carbon heating.
Air-source heat pumps are expected to play a crucial role in helping the UK Government reach its decarbonisation goals. As the installation of heat pumps increases, Daikin plans to expand its service and maintenance capabilities accordingly. By acquiring Robert Heath Heating, Daikin UK says it will be able to enhance its maintenance services for residential customers across the UK.
The move also builds on Daikin’s Sustainable Home Centre network. The centres provide opportunities for homeowners to explore heat pump technology, and offer a hub where installers can access free local training and resources to help them diversify into renewable heating solutions. The Sustainable Home Centres will now be able to draw on the significant resources of Robert Heath Heating’s engineers to deliver servicing and maintenance services.
Daikin UK’s Managing Director, Hiroyasu Ishikawa said: “Daikin UK’s acquisition of Robert Heath Heating strengthens our organisation and is intended to assure after-sales support capacity in view of the increasing number of customers who install our residential heat pumps. The acquisition will fuel growth and opportunities for both organisations and ensure excellent levels of customer service and satisfaction.”
Robert Heath’s founder, Robert Heath added: “This is great news for Robert Heath Heating. Thanks to Daikin, we will be able to speed up the move towards servicing residential heat pumps. We will continue to work closely with our existing partners in the heating and social housing sectors. We are looking forward to joining the Daikin group, who share the same customer-first values as we do.”
