Study Examines Home Centers

CHANTILLY, Va. - The New Horizons Foundation, a sheet metal industry initiative, and FMI Corp. will examine the home center movement's current and potential impact on the HVAC industry and on the union segment of the trade.

"FMI is contributing the entire value of the firm's services for this study at a value of approximately $60,000," said board chair George Welsch. "Our foundation board is very pleased to have FMI as a partner for this key project."

Working with key leaders of the foundation, FMI's research team hopes to develop estimated past and future high-level revenues by channel (residential and nonresidential level) and at the HVAC level. The research will attempt to identify specific trends and drivers that will impact potential scenarios. These factors will then be thoroughly reviewed and evaluated, taking into consideration all possible market dynamics.
