Noritz America has announced that Quality Sales Inc., Vancouver, Washington, is helping to cover the tankless water heater market in the Pacific Northwest, effective April 1, 2021. The manufacturer's representative will work alongside Noritz’s own sales staff in that region; specifically, Washington, Oregon, Alaska and the Idaho Panhandle in the northern part of that state.
Established in 1994, Quality Sales is “a well-established leader among manufacturers reps in the Northwest market,” said Jason Fleming, executive vice president and general manager at Noritz America. “We feel that their long-standing local relationships, in-depth tankless knowledge and focus on contractor relationships will match perfectly with our localized team. We are honored to start a long-standing partnership with such a great group. Welcome to the Noritz family!”
Representing the complete Noritz line of residential and commercial tankless water heaters and residential combination boilers, Quality Sales will serve as a commission-based agent for the brand to the entire plumbing and heating chain of distribution, calling not only on wholesalers, but also on contractors, builders and inspectors, as well as specifying engineers.
Eric Halberg, principal at Quality Sales, said, “We have been working in the water heating and tankless industry, combined, for roughly 15-plus years. My experience with Noritz so far has been great. We are excited to work with a down-to-earth company with a localized, hands-on and communicative approach. This will be a valuable relationship, and we are looking forward to our future with Noritz.”
In addition to Halberg, Quality Sales Inc. is led by Principals Mike Lehman and Ken Kinghorn. The company has 16 associates, covering parts of the Pacific Northwest for various commercial, industrial, plumbing, green product and HVAC manufacturers. The full Quality Sales team has more than 150 years of combined plumbing industry experience.
With the company's main headquarters in Vancouver, Washington, and a field office in Auburn, Washington, Quality Sales Inc. maintains relationships with numerous industry manufacturers, including American Standard and ZurnPex. Their marketing, sales and representation activities currently extend into five different U.S. states. Besides Washington, Oregon, Alaska and the Idaho Panhandle, these also include Montana and the southern part of Idaho.
