Aspen Pumps Group Announces Sky Refrigeration Investment
Sky Refrigeration, the HVAC/R component manufacturer and supplier, has joined the Aspen Pumps Group, the global leader in condensate pumps and accessories.
Sky Refrigeration, founded in February 2010, was the creation of Pete and Bernadette Schey, who developed the business after realising the need for innovation within the HVAC/R components industry. Teamwork and a dynamic work ethic has ensured that Sky Refrigeration’s innovative products are now some of the most sought after in Australia.
Aspen Pumps, one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of HVAC/R equipment and accessories, has a track record of investing in successful businesses to take them to the next level.

From these humble beginnings, the company now boasts companies across 4 continents, including Aspen Asia Pacific in Lonsdale, Australia.
Pete said, ‘The prospect of joining Aspen Pumps Group came out of the blue, but we had always enjoyed bouncing idea off the guys at Aspen and getting new views of the market.
