Cambridge Lee To Reduce Number of Lengths of Linesets
Cambridge Lee Industries, LLC has announced, that, effective Jan. 1, 2009, the company will reduce the number of lengths of linesets to the four most popular sizes sold in the air conditioning and refrigeration market. The four lengths will be 25, 30, 35 and 50 footers. These four lengths represent more than 90% of linesets currently sold in the U.S. today.
Also, Cambridge Lee Industries will eliminate offering linesets with ¼ and 3/16 insulation. With the introduction of the 13 SEER minimum requirement for new installations of air conditioning systems and stricter code enforcement, these smaller sizes of insulation are becoming obsolete. Linesets will be available with 3/8, 1/2 and 3/4 insulation.
These decisions will contribute to more efficient inventory management of linesets for both the wholesale distributors and manufacturers. It will also require less warehouse space and greatly reduce the number of SKUs.
Cambridge Lee Industries says it has surveyed many wholesale distributors this past year and received the wholehearted support for implementing these changes.
