Truma North America announced that the company will begin representing Alde systems in the near future.
According to a press release, Truma will integrate Alde into their new headquarters opening in Elkhart in the fall. They will combine forces sharing a mutual service network, logistics and warehousing, and sales team to support both OEM and retail customers throughout North America. Moving to Elkhart will allow Alde to be closer to its OEM customers where they will continue preassembly of their systems and distribution.
Similar to the Truma Combi, the Alde Compact 3020 produced in Sweden, is a hydronic heating system for both radiant heating and hot water. Due to its compact construction, the system takes up very little space and also offers underfloor heating and continuous hot water. It is fueled by LPG or 120-volt electricity. It can also be fueled by both at the same time when you need maximum power, providing all-season comfort.
“Adding another comfort system to the Truma North America portfolio will strengthen relationships with OEMs and dealers as Truma and Alde both cater to the premium RV market,” Tomas Haglund, CEO of Alde Sweden said.“Truma’s new North America headquarters will include a state-of-the-art climate chamber, where we will be able to test both Alde and Truma comfort systems in real world conditions and help OEM’s install premium heating systems.”
Gerhard Hundsberger, president and CEO of Truma North America commented, “We are excited to have Alde join our team in Elkhart and to add Alde Systems to our portfolio. Alde has already established strong customer relationships here in North America and we are happy to expand the customer base and educate OEM’s about the advantages of installing innovative, quiet furnaces and water heaters. Alde systems are synergetic with Truma comfort systems with superior quality and technology.”
Alde began business in 2012 in North America and is a sister company to Truma Gerätetechnik GmbH & Co. KG, which established its North America headquarters in Elkhart, Ind., in 2013. Both companies were originally established 70 years ago in 1949.
