AHIC is a fully owned subsidiary of  Air-Conditioning & Heating International (AHI) which became a Carrier Joint Venture Company on December 18th, 2008. The partnership between Carrier and AHI dates back to December 1997 when the first agreement was signed for distribution of Carrier products in Russia and all of CIS countries (12 countries).

In 1999, Carrier& Toshiba Air-conditioning entered into a Joint Venture and as a consequence the Toshiba range of air-conditioning products was  added for distribution in our territories. Success came early and in 2000 Carrier rewarded us by expanding our distribution rights to East and Central Africa (15 countries).

Since the creation of the Joint Venture more countries have been added to include Middle East, Central Europe, Australia & New Zealand (18 countries).

AHIC keeps a flexible and aggressive forward sales structure (sales offices & dealer network) and builds sales support functions in a centralized back office (Sharjah, U.A.E). The strategy focuses on economies of scale and allows AHIC to quickly respond to opportunities in the sales area, in parallel  builds  a competitive system of product specification and technical support, logistics coordination, finance & M.I.S.

The most critical factor contributing AHI's successful track record of profitable growth has been its commitment to service - and this commitment will become increasingly important in the future..

AHI runs Totaline stores in Australia, New Zealand & Middle East where more  stores are being added. Totaline stocks and sells a full range of HVACR parts, consumables & tools for residential and commercial applications.

AHI now distributes Carrier & Toshiba HVAC products in 44 countries across 3 continents
