Carrier in New Zealand

AHI Carrier (NZ) Limited, a Carrier joint venture company, is New Zealand's leader in modern air conditioning technology. We are pleased and proud to have maintained this position for the past 45 years. Carrier has earned the trust of engineers, consultants, business owners and consumers who choose Carrier products for their convenience, value and reliability. Carrier is ready to serve you through our professional Carrier Dealer Network centres located throughout the country.

In 1965 Fletcher Mechanical Product Sales Division acquired the agency for Carrier Air Conditioning, the world's largest air conditioning company and sold Carrier's large commercial products into New Zealand. In 1980 Fletcher Mechanical Ltd acquired Fisher & Paykel Engineering Ltd and Zonepak (Manufacturing and Sales of Carrier products), Airite (Service of Carrier and other equipment) and Mecon Ltd (HVAC contracting) were formed. In 1985 because of the rapid growth and success of Zonepak, Carrier Corporation decided to buy back the agency and purchased both Zonepak and Airite under the name Carrier Air Conditioning (NZ) Ltd. To further broaden the range of distribution and service opportunities, Carrier moved the operation in 2009 into the highly successful AHI-Carrier joint venture company and renamed the company AHI Carrier (NZ) Ltd. To this day AHI-Carrier remains at the forefront of air conditioning and heapump technology in New Zealand.


AHI Carrier formerly known as Air-conditioning & Heating International (AHI) became a Carrier Joint Venture Company on December 18th, 2008. The partnership between Carrier and AHI dates back to December 1997 when the first agreement was signed for distribution of Carrier products in Russia and all of CIS countries (12 countries).

In 1999, Carrier& Toshiba Air-conditioning entered into a Joint Venture and as a consequence the Toshiba range of air-conditioning products were added for distribution in our territories. Success came early and in 2000 Carrier rewarded us by expanding our distribution rights to East and Central Africa (15 countries).

Since the creation of "AHI Carrier" Joint Venture more countries have been added to include Middle East, Central Europe, Australia & New Zealand (18 countries).

AHI Carrier keeps a flexible and aggressive forward sales structure (sales offices & dealer network) and builds sales support functions in a centralized back office (Sharjah, U.A.E). The strategy focuses on economies of scale and allows AHI Carrier to quickly respond to opportunities in the sales area, parallely building a competitive system of product specification and technical support, logistics coordination, finance & M.I.S.

The most critical factor contributing AHI's successful track record of profitable growth has been its commitment to service - and this commitment will become increasingly important in the future.

AHI Carrier runs TOTALINE stores in Australia, New Zealand & Middle East where more such stores are being added. TOTALINE stocks and sells a full range of HVACR parts, consumables & tools for residential and commercial applications.

AHI Carrier now distributes Carrier & Toshiba HVAC products in 44 countries across 3 continents.
