Focus on indoor climate

The rapid internationalization continued. The French acquisition was an important strategic move at the time when the Finnish companies were aiming to enter the European Community and its vast markets. In 1991 it was time to enter Belgium and in 1992 a sales company for indoor climate products was established in Germany.

The year 1993 marked the beginning of a new era for Halton. The first major technology transfer happened in co-operation with a Japanese partner, the Sanbec Corporation, who became a licensee of Halton's kitchen ventilation technology.
In 1992, Halton's operations were divided in two independent and clearly defined business divisions: Recycling & Shop Furnishing and Indoor Climate.

Halton expanded to Asia and established a factory in Malaysia 1996. In 1997 Halton focused on indoor climate business. An accredited representative office was opened in Moscow, Russia, in 1997. In the same year, a new factory was established in Scottsville, USA. In 1998, the factory was accompanied by an R&D centre.

The recycling division was sold and the shop furnishings division formed a group of its own in 1998. A sales office was founded in Warsaw, Poland in 1999.
