Through this tie-up, Fujitsu General intends to strengthen the HVAC services corresponding to the commercial air conditioner market in India, the company said in a statement.

ABS can leverage the air-conditioning technologies, financial strength and sales network of Fujitsu aiming towards expansion of mutual business, it added.

According to Fujitsu, both companies would continue discussions for the expansion of services in fast-growing Indian and other markets, even as ABS would continue to operate as an independent HVAC contractor with guidance and support of Fujitsu General.
