Dometic Group buys Marvair air-conditioning division

Dometic Group recently bought Marvair’s marine air-conditioning business.

As part of the arrangement, Dometic will purchase certain parts and product inventory from Airxcel to provide product support and warranty service to existing Marvair Marine customers.

In addition, Dometic has procured an inventory of Marvair products that will be offered for sale while supplies last.

Dometic said Marvair decided to exit the manufacturing and sale of air conditioners for pleasure boats to focus on the growing telecommunications segment of its business.

Moving forward, Dometic will support all of Marvair Marine’s OEM customers with products and services to keep their production lines moving without any interruption of supply.

Dometic Group will provide current Marvair customers with application engineering, warranty support, parts and ongoing service. Warranty for Marvair Marine products sold into the pleasure boat market will be administered by Dometic for the duration of the warranty period.

“Dometic Group is pleased to have the opportunity to support Marvair customers and will make every effort to meet their needs with our extensive products and global service network,” Dometic vice president of marine OEM sales Ned Trigg said in a statement.
