Read all about it: a new, complete HVAC product line has hit the residential/light commercial marketplace and it is being brought to you via a partnership forged between Nordyne and WinWholesale Inc.
The new line, NuTone Heating and Cooling Products, manufactured by Nordyne, will be available through Noland Company’s 100+ branches nationwide and 57 participating WinAir distributors. Noland is a wholly owned subsidiary of WinWholesale.
• Air conditioning equipment and heat pumps
• IAQ products
• Packaged systems
• Air handlers and coils
• Zoning products
In a special Internet broadcast on Friday, December 7th, Rick Schwartz, president and CEO of WinWholesale; Jean Preston, COO of Noland; David LaGrand, CEO of Nordyne; and Doug Jones, VP marketing and sales, Nordyne, made the announcement and added that Noland will no longer carry its current HVAC product line. Regional rollouts of the NuTone premium product line are already in place for December, and a companywide rollout meeting will take place in early 2008.
In addition, Noland will carry Nordyne-made Gibson HVAC products for their light commercial contractor customers.
The NuTone product line will include a full line of energy efficient products, including the 23-SEER iQ Drive air conditioning system. NuTone products come with a limited 10-year warranty, and 10 year quality pledge. The NuTone Quality Pledge states that if a compressor or heat exchanger fails within the first 10 years of operation, it will be replaced with a new NuTone unit.
“This partnership is a message of opportunity for contractors who are looking for a new strategy to grow in today’s competitive marketplace,” says Dave LaGrand. “The combination of a strong brand, a great wholesaler in WinWholesale and Noland backed by a quality manufacturer provides forward-looking contractors with the opportunity to differentiate their companies in their local sales area.”
Says Doug Jones, “We are thrilled about this partnership. We share common goals such as creating profitable growth opportunities and supporting independent distribution. Having parallel strategies really makes this a win-win situation.”
“We are committed to providing our customers the best service delivery including dependable expertise as well as breadth and depth of available products. Offering NuTone Heating and Cooling Products reinforces this commitment,” said Jean Preston of the Noland Company.
Nordyne CEO and President Dave LaGrand views WinWholesale and Noland as ideal distribution partners for Nordyne. “We are extremely impressed with their people and capabilities and know they will do a terrific job in marketing the exciting line of NuTone heating and cooling products. There is a tremendous amount of consistency between WinWholesale’s goals and our goals, and I believe we share the same competitive and enterprising spirit that will help to ensure our mutual success.”
