Klima was founded in 2011 with a primary focus on VRF Equipment sales. Klima NY was created out of the desire to help customers navigate the complexities of VRF systems, and provide the support that other vendors were simply not willing to provide. Unlike other equipment vendors, Klima went to market with a single product line: LG Electronics VRF. Often, consulting engineers and contractors become frustrated with the lack of support and knowledge by vendors trying to carry too many products. At Klima, we did not want to be distracted by anything that would undermine our goal: being the market’s leading expert on VRF systems.

As years went on, we realized we also needed to provide support products that went along with VRF systems. Products like energy recovery ventilators were not widely used, but worked well with VRF systems, so we began adding products that made sense.

In 2017 we opened a stocking location in Long Island City to better serve the New York City market with equipment and parts available at a moment’s notice. In addition to a warehouse, we built a 50-seat training center for LG’s VRF systems, to provide up-to-date installation and service training to contractors throughout the NY Metro area.

In 2019 the company made a significant transformation, merging with AES Equipment Sales. This merger added new management and growth to the company. It also added some of the top-selling HVAC product lines in the market to Klima’s offering. Shortly thereafter, with the additional leadership and product lines, Klima was recruiting some of the market’s most talented HVAC professionals to join its growing team.

HVAC controls are often misunderstood and underestimated in their role in HVAC systems of all sizes. High quality HVAC controls specialists can be tough to find. In 2020, Klima had the opportunity to acquire iCon System Solutions Controls. To be able to deliver high-quality equipment and controls together to a customer, and ensure proper functionality and longevity, is the goal and passion of Klima. Our controls division, Klima Controls, can provide turnkey controls systems for nearly any size building, with a multitude of controls platforms and protocols.

In 2022, Klima opened a second location, in Melville, NY to better serve the Long Island market. The nearly 13,000 square foot space houses our corporate offices, controls group and LG training lab. This training lab also provides a showcase for our building management control systems. Situated on the Route 110 corridor, this location provides easy access for contractors and engineers alike to attend training classes on installation, service, or controls.

Klima came from humble beginnings, with a single product and only a few employees, to being the fastest-growing manufacturers’ rep in the New York Metro area, with over 50 employees. Klima consistently leads the country in sales volume for nearly every product line we have. Even though our size and capabilities have grown, our goal has never changed: deliver the most value and the best support to our customers.
