Arzel Zoning Technology, an industry leader in retrofit zoning products, announced Famous Supply will now represent the Arzel product line as an authorized distributor for Ohio, Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
2J Supply, Dayton, OH, will begin to carry the Arzel product line as authorized distributor for Southern Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia.
Arzel has built a significant base of business in its home market of Northeast Ohio by selling direct to contractors for many years. “As Arzel has grown, we recognized the need for a strong distribution network as the best way to support rapidly growing sales,” according to Dennis Laughlin, president of Arzel.
The selection of both Famous Supply and 2J Supply over other impressive distributors serving this market came down to a key synergy between Arzel Zoning and the two distribution leaders.
“The proven and impressive commitment to training and education which Famous has developed with Famous University® complements the Arzel Comfort College like no other distributor in the area could,” Laughlin says. “By creating new comfort advocates through education we can better achieve our mission of providing all homeowners with the comfort and energy efficiency they desire whether their home is brand new or older.”
“We recognize the impact that Arzel has had in our market and we are pleased to share in their success,” adds John Palermo, sales manager of Famous Supply. “We're confident that through our dedication to supporting our customer’s growth initiatives we will grow Arzel’s sales as well.”
“When considering 2 Supply as a partner, we were impressed with the quality of service they provide, along with their commitment to offering various education opportunities to contractors,” states Laughlin. “By creating new comfort advocates through education we can better achieve our mission of providing all homeowners with the comfort and energy efficiency they desire whether their home is brand new or older.”
"At 2 J Supply, we strive to serve our customers by supporting them with the highest quality products possible,” says Nathan Borders, sales manager of 2 J Supply. “We're excited to partner with Arzel to make their zoning products available locally at all eight of our locations throughout Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia. It's our mission to be the preferred distributor in each of our markets, and we look forward to providing Arzel Zoning products to every customer with free next day delivery using one of our 28 delivery trucks."
