Embraco's New Partner

SUWANEE, Ga. - Embraco North America partnered with Packard Inc., a Kennesaw, Ga.-based master distributor of electric motors, transformers, relays, and HVACR controls. Packard will support the company with express distribution of Embraco compressors and condensing units and Bristol compressors to the HVACR aftermarket.

Beginning Jan. 2010, Packard Inc. will inventory Embraco and Bristol compressors and condensing units for the express purpose of providing quick turnaround to the customer of these key replacement items.

“Embraco’s strength is with large volume orders, but we realize the market today requires a high level of service with small orders as well,” said Ferris McDaniel, national wholesale sales manager for Embraco. “Packard has a reputation for getting their customers’ orders out the door quickly, so we view the partnership as a win-win-win for Embraco, Packard, and most importantly, our customer base.”

“We are thrilled to announce our alliance,” said Susan Kirkland, president of Packard Inc. “Packard is dedicated to the customer and we believe that by adding the Embraco and Bristol product lines, their customers will see a much improved level of service on the smaller orders. Since most of the Embraco/Bristol customers are already doing business with us, we will be able to help reduce their operational costs and improve service while providing a broader product offering and greater overall satisfaction to all Packard customers.”
