Interview of Mr. Ahsan Aslam – CEO Smart Climate Solutions Pvt Ltd.
SCS journey since last six years has been remarkable. There were many success stories and many lessons learnt. Foremost, the journey continues to reinforce the importance on the principles, which pillars our company. Transparency, Integrity and Commitment.
A bumpy ride marked by accomplishments, celebrations and, at times, patience has surely made us more resilient. First three years filled will excitement of laying down a strong foundation and last three years with struggle of coping up with plethora of International and Domestic challenges.
First three years of business, we worked to build a strong team, which shared our values and ensured a strong market presence backed by robust after sales system. Last three year of business, have made us extremely proactive in responding to unforeseen scenarios. International challenges posed by Covid-19 Pandemic and resulting supply chain disruptions, Russia-Ukraine conflict, strengthening dollar and now predictions of global recession have made us ever more aware of managing our risk. Domestic challenges of political instability, import restrictions resulting from economic crises and rupee depreciation have made us more resilient.
What has been consistent is our determination to strengthen our pillars. Transparency with our Partners (AHI-Carrier, Hisense HVAC & Baltimore), as well as with our customers, enabled us to negotiate to mutual benefit during testing times and helped us to operate smoothly based on shared trust. Integrity helped us built a credible reputation in the market, which we are ever so proud of. Commitment has made us stand out as a company that is capable to deliver in any situation.
We are extremely proud of what we have achieved and see big things in future for opportunities that our country has to offer.

Interview of Mr. Andy – Hisense HVAC
It’s been almost six years, but I still clearly remember that, in our annual meeting 2016, I faced many questions and concerns from our management after I briefly introduced Smart Climate Solutions (SCS) and planned to appoint SCS as our sole distributor in Pakistan. The main concern was that Hisense brand is new in Pakistan and SCS was also new at that time. However, our management finally agreed after we explained our action plans, and issued the distribution letter in fourth, Jan 2017.
In Feb 2017, George and me, we started working in Pakistan, and we spent around 8 months there. Mr. Ahsan and I travelled many cities in Pakistan to know the market and sought opportunities. Actually, I visited more cities in Pakistan than in China. Initially it was very hard, and we could not get any job in several months. Then team were a little bit frustrated but still we worked very hard, because we firmly believed someday we could impress the clients with our dedication and sincere service.
Luckily, we received lots of valuable advice and supports from HVAC professionals in Pakistan. Under the efforts of all team members, soon we found our direction and made our strategy, “Quality First, Service Upmost”. Gradually we got breakthrough, now SCS is one of the fastest growing HVAC Company in Pakistan, and Hisense brand got better recognition.
The market situation is still very challenging; Hisense and SCS will work closely and keep improving ourselves with better solutions and better service for Pakistan market. On the sixth anniversary of SCS, on behalf of Hisense HVAC Overseas Department, I would like to wish that SCS will continues to thrive and become stronger and stronger.

I have been working with AHI Carrier as a Country Manager – Pakistan and AHI Carrier started working with Smart Climate Solutions Pvt. Ltd since 2019. We joined hands with Smart Climate Solutions Pvt Ltd for the Carrier’s Commercial Product representative in Pakistan.

Interview of Mr. Robert Hughes – Baltimore Air Coil Company
‘BAC is a company that prides itself on its high quality products and standards and when exploring new channel partners, we saw that SCS hold the same values true in their business. The drive and ambition of the team, accompanied by the complimentary high quality products that make up their portfolio made them an excellent choice for our partner in the market.
Over the past twelve months of our partnership, we are encouraged by the successful market education initiatives that together we have been able to deliver to the market. Focusing particularly on the importance of using certified products when selecting cooling towers, this topic is sometimes overlooked, but the team of SCS have embraced our ideas and are now showing stakeholders in the market the benefits that this brings. Such Benefits are, peace of mind on performance and reliable operation and low risk of issues with the chiller (avoiding increasing opex costs) and maximizing the equipment life span.
We are looking forward to seeing further success in our current initiatives and we are sure that the momentum we currently see will only continue.
