Contracting Business posed some questions to Scott Ewald, Brand Marketing Leader - Trane Residential HVAC & Supply:

  • Why does Trane feel another brand is needed? We recall the Oxbox release from last year.
    • Scott Ewald: The Oxbox brand was created to serve those who are not already part of the Trane distribution system but who are seeking a line that gives their customers affordable quality. RunTru was developed as a value brand offering for our current Trane dealers, and carries the commitment to reliability that one would expect from a Trane-backed brand. 
  • Are RunTru features unique to RunTru?
    • Scot Ewald: RunTru features are unique to RunTru, as it is an entirely new brand with a full portfolio of ducted equipment that is assembled in the United States. These units are designed to provide cost-first customers a dependable solution without all of the bells and whistles found in a premium Trane system.
  • Did research reveal that this was needed?
    • Scott Ewald: The addition of RunTru allows Trane to diversify its offering and provide all customers a solid HVAC system option. We have prided ourselves in offering premium systems for more than 100 years. This move lets us serve more customers with a Trane-backed choice for every home.
