Goodman Manufacturing Company, L.P. — a member of the Daikin group — has selected Thermal Supply, Seattle, WA as the recipient of the 2014 Harold V. Goodman Award. Thermal Supply is an independent distributor of Goodman, Amana brand and Daikin HVAC products.
The Harold V. Goodman Award is given to the most outstanding independent distributor of the year, as evidenced by multiple factors. To qualify for this award an independent distributor must have:
- A minimum of 15 years of service as a Goodman distributor
- Consistent sales growth each year
- Best-in-class customer service
- Consistent improvements in business process
Thermal Supply has been a Goodman distributor since 1992. Starting from two locations in the early 1970’s, owner Bob Monroe grew Thermal from 2 locations to 12. When he retired in 1992, sons Mike and Dan Monroe took over, switched to Goodman, and have since grown the business to 24 locations in the Pacific Northwest, with locations in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska.
“Thermal Supply increased its total HVAC sales over 40% last year, which is phenomenal,” says Mark Dolan, President of Goodman Sales and Distribution, Inc. “So far this year, they are just as impressive with sales performance gains exceeding 20%. We are excited about Thermal Supply and the substantial progress they are making in their markets. This sales growth is a direct testament to the outstanding levels of customer support offered to all Thermal Supply customers.”
Thermal Supply has driven additional market share and sales growth recently by focusing on the Amana brand of high-efficiency systems, with substantial sales of 14+ SEER condensing units and 95% efficiency furnaces. This year, they also brought in the premier Daikin ductless product line, and have already become one of the largest Daikin ductless distributors in the Western United States.
Co-owner Mike Monroe states, “We are honored to receive this award. Moving to Goodman is one of the best decisions we ever made. I am also pleased that Goodman and Daikin have joined forces. Goodman has been the leader in the United States for years, and Daikin has that leadership position globally. The synergy of this company is just fantastic, and it‘s a great time to be a distributor for Goodman, Amana and now Daikin”.
