Panasonic Takes to the Road with Wolseley to Showcase Aquarea Heat Pumps


Panasonic has partnered with merchants Wolseley, to showcase its Aquarea range of Air to Water heat pumps, which are available in Wolseley’s 450 branches throughout the UK.

Wolseley is one of the UK’s leading heating and plumbing merchants, well known for supplying good quality parts to the industry with more than 100 years of experience. Richard Harvey, Commercial Director for Wolseley Plumbing and Heating says: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Panasonic as we share many values – the two businesses are both longstanding and well known within the industry, have a good reputation and we share the same commitment to both people and sustainability. We are growing our renewables offering and Panasonic has an impressively wide range of units for all sizes of project. This new partnership will help both brands grow together in this market, where we can also offer training and open up new opportunities to further enhance and grow the market.”

The partnership kicked off with a team touring Wolseley plumbing merchants, taking Panasonic’s fully kitted out Aquarea Van to branches from Scotland down to the South Coast of England. The Aquarea Van is fitted with a working model of the Aquarea air source heat pump and fully showcases the unit’s quiet operation, highlighting the range of air to water heat pumps available.

The new eye-catching mobile unit will be used to demonstrate and raise awareness of Panasonic’s Aquarea Heat Pumps for both residential and commercial use. Technical experts are on hand to provide in-depth technical assistance for both building professionals and the wider supply chain.

Visitors to the mobile unit will also be able to learn how the Panasonic Aquarea kit integrates with the Wiser home heating system to create a fully smart solution following the recent partnership.

Charley Sawyer, Area Sales Manager for Panasonic, was instrumental in putting this new partnership together comments: “The road show programme provides an opportunity for us to talk directly with Wolseley’s customers, to educate and show working units to installers, and to help them more fully understand the technology and the benefits of heat pumps. Interest is high from installers looking to learn more about installing air source heat pumps, and this partnership provides a great way for us to reach more installers throughout the UK. Following the tour, Panasonic and Wolseley will come together again in the new year to offer training courses throughout the UK.”
