ARLINGTON, Va. — The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) named AirRite Air-Conditioning Co., Fort Worth, Texas, and K&M Shillingford, Tulsa, Okla., as contractors of the year.

“Each year the best contractors in the country apply for this award and share their unique business practices and dedication to our industry’s success,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president and CEO. “Our panel of judges always has a difficult task when they have to choose the recipient of these awards. This year, they have again selected two very deserving companies that exemplify the qualities that all the best companies share.”

AirRite Air-Conditioning Co. received the residential contractor of the year award at ACCA’s 2012 Conference and Expo.

“Being selected residential contractor of the year is a great honor,” said Larry Taylor, president of AirRite Air-Conditioning Co. “We have an amazing team that serves and satisfies our customers each and every day. Without them we would simply be another contractor in the great sea of sameness in the marketplace; they make AirRite right. I also want to congratulate the other contractors that applied for this award for helping to raise the bar for all contractors.”

K&M Shillingford Inc. received the commercial contractor of the year award during the conference’s closing session.

“Receiving this award is like winning the Super Bowl,” said Peter Shillingford, vice president. “Every player strives for that moment and plays hard for years waiting for that recognition — that Super Bowl ring. This is our ring.”
