ARLINGTON, Va. — North American Technician Excellence (NATE) honored several companies during the recent Heating, Air-conditioning & Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) Conference in Phoenix.

NATE recognized four HARDI member companies for their outstanding efforts to promote NATE technician certification and the advancement of the HVACR industry.

The 2013 NATE Top Certifier award went to Mingledorff’s Inc., Norcross, Ga., for being the HARDI distributor that certified the most NATE technicians across multiple testing locations.

Johnstone Supply, Denver, again won the NATE Single Location Top Certifier honor. The location was recognized for certifying more NATE technicians than any other HARDI member at a single location.

Airefco Inc., Tualatin, Ore., was recognized for having the greatest increase in the number of NATE technician certifications from the past year, while Kru-Kel, Charleston, S.C., earned the 2013 Rising Star Certifier award for being the first-time NATE testing organization with the greatest number of technician certifications in 2013.

“NATE is pleased to continue to partner with HARDI to present the NATE Certifier awards at this year’s conference,” said John Lanier, COO, NATE. “These HARDI members host NATE certification testing because they understand the value NATE certifications provide in improving the level of knowledge, training, and service in the HVACR industry. We are proud to recognize their efforts.”
