In 2017, Daikin announced its new relationship with Harrison Energy Partners (HEP), the largest commercial and industrial HVAC firm in Arkansas, as the authorized manufacturer’s representative in central, northwest and western Arkansas, eastern Oklahoma, and Oklahoma City. Effective immediately, Daikin Applied announced it has extended that relationship, making HEP the Service Alliance Provider in Oklahoma City and the surrounding region. As a Service Alliance Provider, HEP is now authorized and responsible for responding to customers’ Daikin Applied equipment service, operation and maintenance needs.
With strengths in HVAC applications, system service, controls and energy services, HEP helps customers efficiently maintain comfort in their buildings. HEP brings over 30 years of experience as a top service and solutions provider to the Oklahoma City region. Oklahoma customers will benefit from this expertise throughout the life-cycle of their equipment, as well as from consistent coverage from one provider located in the market.
HEP’s CEO, Bill Harrison, is confident in his team’s ability to meet the needs of Oklahomans. “Having recently established our presence in Northeast Oklahoma, we’re genuinely excited to expand to the state’s capitol and are now positioned to serve the majority of the state. We will continue our mission of delivering commercial HVAC excellence at a superior value to become our client’s first choice in Oklahoma.”
Daikin Applied’s executive vice president of sales, marketing and aftermarket, Kirk Thorne, believes that expanding Daikin’s relationship with HEP to service the Oklahoma City region will fuel Daikin’s growth in that market.
“With HEP representing Daikin equipment in the territory already, we’ll be able to serve our customers more consistently and efficiently. HEP has proven again and again to be both a top employer in Arkansas and the top HVAC solutions provider. Together, we believe we will grow to be an unmatchable force in HVAC systems and solutions in the region," Thorne said.
