Marketing pact aims to help building owners
Jessup, Md.-based Tate Access Floors, a producer of raised-access floor systems, has teamed up with Air Zone International in a joint marketing initiative. The agreement will offer designers of high-performance and sustainable buildings quiet, compact and energy-efficient supply air to underfloor service distribution systems, according to the two firms.
Houston-based Air Zone International manufactures air-handling products; these products assist engineers in complying with ASHRAE 90.1 guidelines for energy efficiency.
“Teaming up with Air Zone to market its energy-efficient supply air systems for underfloor air applications is consistent with the existing Tate strategy to align ourselves with like-minded manufacturers whose products are complementary to our raised-floor and underfloor service distribution components,” said Ralph Mannion, general manager at Tate. “This allows us to both broaden our suggested solutions and reinforce the position of underfloor service distribution as one of the key components of high-performance and sustainable commercial office buildings.”
Under the agreement, Tate will serve as Air Zone International’s marketing partner in locations where Air Zone does not have existing representation. The new territory covers all of Canada and much of the United States, including the Southeast and the West Coast.
