U.S. Channel Partners Benefit from ABB Cylon Smart Building Solutions and ABB HVAC Partnership

ABB Cylon has agreed to a strategic partnership with ABB HVAC to offer cutting-edge solutions to Channel partners on the distribution of variable frequency drives (VFDs) into ABB Cylon Control’s marketplace

The partnership offers solutions for commercial buildings, universities, hospitals and more, which can now benefit from the distribution of VFDs into the ABB Cylon control marketplace. ABB HVAC Drives Distributors have inventory to support projects up-front as well as for the long term if replacements are ever needed. If necessary, ABB HVAC Drives distributors can provide warranty support to end-users offering minimal interruption at the site.

“With this announcement, System Integrators can work directly with ABB HVAC Drives distributors to purchase ABB HVAC drives. This simplifies the buying process for SI’s, giving them one supply chain to manage for a complete solution line for their projects” said Michael Lotfy, SVP Head of Building Solutions, ABB. “This is just another way ABB Cylon Smart Building Solutions is driving connected technologies that reshape industries, transform cities and enrich lives, and achieving our goal of making businesses safer, more efficient and more sustainable.”


The ABB HVAC Drives team has developed a national Special Pricing Agreement (SPA) for its distributor channel. This special pricing is being offered to all ABB Cylon Smart Buildings Solutions System Integrators through ABB HVAC Drives distributors. Pricing is calculated on the number of HVAC drives purchased and will be negotiated through ABB HVAC Drives team distributors.

It is also possible to purchase HVAC Drives online. Online purchases are supported by the internet minimum advertised price and do hold discounts. However, working with an ABB HVAC Drives Distributor is recommended to receive the most competitive pricing.
