Reorganisation of FRIATEC Building Services

Dear Madam:
Dear Sir:

We would like to inform you of the reorganization of the Building Services Division of FRIATEC AG in Germany and what implications this has on our existing product offering to you.

After long and careful analysis and with the agreement of the FRIATEC AG Supervisory Board, FRIATEC Building Services will be reorganised into a production centre for the extrusion of pipes, a service organisation for the supply of spare parts and after sales service. The remainder of the FRIATEC AG activities – Technical Plastics, Ceramics and Pumps – are not affected in any way.

The decision to reorganise FRIATEC Building Services impacts all the existing product lines.
A limited number of products will be discontinued. The remainder will be either substituted by an equivalent product or will continue to be available, albeit that sales and/or production may transfer to another Aliaxis Group company in Europe.

  • FRIATHERM Hot & Cold Water Systems From June 1st 2012 the Hot & Cold water systems FRIATHERM multi and FRIATHERM uni will be discontinued. Spare parts for these solutions will remain readily available. System O – CPVC will replace the FRIATHERM starr / FRIATHERM rigid products from June 1st 2012 onwards. Girpi (France), our specialist sister company, will ensure sales and production for these solutions from that date forwards.
  • FRIAPHON Acoustic Waste Water System Sales, service and manufacturing of FRIAPHON sound insulated waste water systems will be provided by Girpi (France) as of June 1st 2012.
  • FRIABLOC Register / prefabricated grids Sanitärtechnik Eisenberg GmbH also known as SANIT (Germany) will manufacture and supply the FRIABLOC Register/prefabricated grids from June 1st 2012.
  • Wefatherm products As from June 1st 2012, a dedicated team at Akatherm (The Netherlands) will ensure sales and order processing for all Wefatherm products and solutions. Production and logistics remain unchanged at the Aliaxis production centre in Wunstorf (Germany).

Our team in Mannheim remains at your service to provide more detailed information on the new FRIATEC Building Services organization. We will contact you shortly on an individual basis with further details on the existing and continued product lines.

We would like to thank you for the good cooperation and we hope we or one of our sister companies can continue to supply you with our superior products. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your known contact.

We thank you for your continued support and remain,

with best regards,
FRIATEC Aktiengesellschaft

Klaus Wolf, CEO
Martin Zenklusen, Managing Director Building Services
