NASHUA, NH — Past president of Excellence Alliance University, Wendell Bedell, has broken off from Excellence Alliance to start a commercial hvacr contracting alliance called the BSI Group. BSI is an alliance of independ-ent commercial heating and cooling contractors from across the country, and provides sales and marketing support services, as well as technical and business training.

According to BSI, the alliance was formed in response to the upheaval that has taken place in the hvacr industry as publicly traded corporations and deregulated utilities started buying up many of the nation’s 50,000 independent contractors. Bedell designed BSI to focus solely on independent commercial contractors to help handle issues of consolidation.

For more information on the alliance, call 800-240-2863 or visit (website).
