Space Air and the Bristol-based refrigeration contractor formally known as Space Cooling Systems have reached an agreement over the use of the name 'Space' - 20th February 2007.
Space Air and the Bristol-based refrigeration contractor formally known as Space Cooling Systems have reached an agreement over the use of the name 'Space'.
On 15th May 2006, Space Cooling Systems Ltd., one of the UK's largest independent refrigeration and M&E contractors, changed its name to Space Ltd., rebranding itself as Space, to reflect the wider range of services that they offer, beyond cooling systems.
Space Airconditioning plc (known as Space Air), the UK's only independent distributor of Daikin air conditioning products and the largest in Europe, raised an objection believing that the name change might cause confusion in the industry, given the similarity of the names Space and Space Air.
The Directors of Space Airconditioning plc and the Directors of Space Ltd. have now issued the following joint statement:
"We are pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached, to rename Space Ltd as Space Engineering Services Ltd., with effect from 12th March 2007.
It has been agreed that this decision will alleviate the possibility of our respective business activities, and our existing and future clients becoming confused as a result of both respected and successful companies being known by a similar name."
