Friedrich Air Conditioning has moved to a new 22,000-square-foot space at the Union Square II Building in San Antonio.

The company moved after almost 40 years along the Pan Am Expressway.

The move included about 90 employees engaged in management, accounting, marketing and sales, product management, engineering, information systems, credit, customer service, human resources and production management.

Friedrich officials said the new location offers an open floor plan that will facilitate better communication. Closer proximity to San Antonio International Airport was another factor in the move, making visits to Friedrich’s headquarters easier for customers and vendors.

“This new space at Union Square II allows us to consolidate our staff onto a single floor,” said CEO George Van Hoomissen. “It is modern and open with design details that reflect our core business. For example, copper air-conditioning coil was used as a design element of the reception desk while employee work stations feature cabinets with a side that emulates the outside grille of our window air conditioners.”
