ANAHEIM, Calif. – Taco Inc. (Cranston, R.I.) hosted its annual AHR Expo reception for its customers at the Anaheim Hilton Hotel on Monday, January 26. As usual, the theme was fun and the mood was anything but "business-oriented."

Stephen Darby, president of Wales Darby Inc. (Warren, N.J.) commented on the festive atmosphere. "Taco has the best party in the industry – bar none," he said. "Even some of my competition is here."

Darby also talked about the AHR Expo. "There are a lot more manufacturers here than I expected," he added. "Being from the Northeast where heating is very important you don't expect to see this many manufacturers in California."

James Yates Jr., president of H.H. Yates & Co. Inc. (Cockeysville, Md.) agreed. "This has been a much better show than anticipated," he said.
