INDIANAPOLIS - Bryant Heating and Cooling Systems has announced its 2009 Medal of Excellence regional winners. Fifteen Bryant Factory Authorized Dealers throughout the United States and Canada were selected for the award.

“Bryant has always been committed to providing dependable, worry-free comfort, but we couldn’t do that without our dealers who sell the products, install them, and keep them running smoothly,” said Tom Archer, Bryant brand manager. “The Medal of Excellence regional winners do ‘Whatever It Takes’ to grow their businesses, while maintaining the highest levels of customer satisfaction.”
