LEBANON, Tenn. - Lochinvar Corp., a manufacturer of high-efficiency water heaters, boilers, and pool heaters, recently awarded participants in its VIP Contractor Program with the grand prize - an all-expenses-paid trip to Tennessee for The Nashville Experience. From June 7 through June 9, Lochinvar treated the winners and their guests to top-notch treatment and entertainment to show its gratitude for the contractors' outstanding sales of the Knight™ Heating Boiler.

The visitors' experiences included a NASCAR Busch Series race at the Nashville Super Speedway, fine southern dining, and their choice of attending the Country Music Association Festival, a dinner cruise on the Opryland Hotel’s General Jackson Showboat, or an evening at the world famous Grand Ole Opry. The winners were also escorted to Lochinvar’s world headquarters in nearby Lebanon, where they toured the plant that manufactures the Knight Heating Boiler and other products. Mike Lahti, vice president of sales, Mike Juhnke, product program manager, and Stirling Boston, marketing manager, greeted their guests upon their arrival and served as their hosts during the course of their stay.

The winners of The Nashville Experience included the following VIP Contractors from the Midwest:

• Phil Forner of Allendale Heating Company Inc. in Allendale, Mich.

• Gregory McCall of Greg’s Service Heating & Cooling in Maryville, Ill.
