During the recent Bryant Dealer Rally, the company’s annual meeting where its top dealers are honored, Air Tech Heating Inc. of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, was named Bryant Dealer of the Year, the highest honor a Bryant dealer can receive. Each year, this award recognizes the company whose hard work, expertise and business acumen have helped it to stand out as a leader in the industry. Bryant, a national supplier of HVAC equipment, is a part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative HVAC, refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.
“We’re both honored and humbled to be selected as the 2019 Bryant Dealer of the Year,” said Dan Price, owner, Air Tech Heating Inc. “I’m incredibly proud of the entire team at Air Tech and I appreciate being recognized for doing business our way, with honesty and integrity. We’re proud to be a Bryant Factory Authorized Dealer and have the support of such a great company. I’m also grateful for the amazing relationships we’ve built with both Bryant and our distributor, Auer Steel, over the course of my 22 years owning the business.”
Founded in 1997, Air Tech Heating Inc. has become known as the “Best Heating & Air Conditioning Company in the Fond du Lac Area” for 10 straight years by Gannett Readers’ Choice. In 2018, Price’s son, Jim, and his wife, Sarah, became co-owners of Air Tech Heating Inc., ensuring that it will remain a fixture in the community for years to come. It’s even more fitting that Air Tech Heating Inc. was selected as the 2019 Bryant Dealer of the Year, as Price retired shortly after the Dealer Rally.
“Bryant dealers continue to help set the standard in our industry,” said Matthew Pine, president, residential HVAC, Bryant. “Our 2019 Dealer of the Year, Air Tech Heating, Inc. is an exemplary organization and has risen to the top among the very best in our elite group of dealers. Dan and his team serve as ideal examples for other Bryant dealers of how to run a successful business and do ‘Whatever It Takes’ to care for our customers.”
Bryant selected its 2019 Dealer of the Year from 22 Medal of Excellence winners, comprised of Bryant Factory Authorized Dealers from throughout North America. The candidates were judged on overall sales growth, high-efficiency and indoor air quality equipment sales, customer satisfaction and participation in dealer programs and promotions.
