New HVAC distribution deal for SPAL
SPAL Automotive UK appoint T7 Design as first advanced brushless technology distributor
SPAL Automotive UK have appointed T7 Design Ltd, innovative manufacturers and suppliers of HVAC products, as the first official distributor of their high-performance advanced brushless technology fans and blowers. Previously only supplied to OEMs, this represents a new departure for SPAL to promote the benefits of brushless technology more widely by making them available to the aftermarket.
Adam Mudge, director of T7 Design, who specialize in the development of vehicle heating, cooling and ventilation products, described how the arrangement came about: ‘Our story with SPAL goes back five years, when I was looking for a replacement radiator fan for a vehicle project I was working on at the time to replace the woeful no-name, budget fan, that was currently fitted.
I started looking into who manufacture and supply the best aftermarket radiator fans and SPAL’s name kept cropping up. Upon further research I was so impressed by the range, quality and reliability, backed by extensive R&D which ensures their products are second to none, making SPAL the obvious choice.
‘The next stage was to put forward our business as a potential stockist and distributor to the automotive aftermarket. After a successful bid, we have gone on to sell thousands of SPAL fans and blowers to customers in over 50 countries worldwide – and counting.
‘Being able to offer SPAL’s new brushless technology is an exciting opportunity for our business, as we can offer technical assistance not only at the design stage, but also advise customers on how to get the best out of the technology for their specific application. We are excited to see what the future holds and the unique projects that we can assist with.’
Commenting on the appointment, SPAL Automotive UK’s managing director, Matthew Morris, said: ‘Adam is very creative and we are working with him in several ways, including a 3D printing project to produce custom mounting brackets for SPAL fans. He has really taken on board the benefits of smart controlled brushless technology, making him the natural ‘go to guy’ for our brushless fans and blowers.’
