Baxi Heating acquisition strengthens packaged plantroom offer
Baxi Heating has strengthened its packaged-plantroom offer with the acquisition of Packaged Plant Solutions, which becomes part of Baxi Heating’s commercial business — joining the Andrews Water Heaters, Potterton Commercial and Remeha brands. Market indicators suggest a continued drive for off-site pre-fabricated solutions, especially with the growth of heat networks which often require a central plantroom.
Packaged Plant Solutions (PPS) is an established business with its own fabrication facility. Baxi Heating has had a presence in the gas pre-heat market for many years, working with PPS, which manufactures the plant rooms.
PPS supplies complete pre-built packaged plantrooms for commercial and industrial applications. The company also manufactures riser and corridor modules to take heat from the plantroom around the buildings.
PPS also makes utility cupboards for end-user apartments. They are delivered to site complete with heat interface units, mechanical ventilation with heat recover, underfloor heating and digital connections already installed.
The acquisitions enables Baxi Heating to provide complete solutions as it can supply boilers, water heaters, CHP products, HIUs and smart controls.
Adam Turk, managing director of Baxi Heating’s commercial business, said, ‘We have enjoyed a long and successful partnership with Packaged Plant Solutions and already work exceptionally well with its team.’
