Carrier Global Corporation announces that Samsung Electronics has joined the Carrier Alliance program and signed a strategic long-term agreement with Carrier. Samsung will supply compressors and inverter technologies for use across Carrier's Residential HVAC portfolio. The agreement also specifies that Samsung will supply Carrier-branded replacement compressors, a benefit for Carrier contractors ordering aftermarket parts.
"We are excited to expand our strategic relationship with Samsung and are pleased to welcome them as one of the newest Carrier Alliance suppliers," said Ed Dunn, Vice President, Supply Chain, Carrier. "Through the Alliance program, we are identifying the best of the best, a select group of suppliers that share our expansive geographic reach, breadth of offering, focus on quality and cost excellence, and commitment to diversity and sustainability."
Joining the Carrier Alliance program is a win-win for Carrier and Samsung as it establishes Samsung as a key supplier for Residential HVAC and paves the way for future opportunities to supply innovative technologies across Carrier's Commercial HVAC and Refrigeration businesses.
"Samsung is very excited to join the Carrier Alliance program and looks forward to expanding our technology across Carrier's portfolio," said Wansoo Kim, Sr. Vice President, Compressor & Motor, Samsung Electronics.
