FARMINGTON, Conn. — UTC Climate, Controls & Security recently signed an agreement with Watsco Inc. (Coconut Grove, Fla.) to form a joint venture named Carrier Enterprise Canada to distribute Carrier, Bryant, and Payne HVAC products and supplies in Canada. Under the agreement, UTC Climate, Controls & Security will contribute its company-operated HVAC distribution business in the region to the new joint venture.
