TYLER, Texas - Trane recently issued a proclamation to every member of the Air Engineers LLC team to recognize and celebrate the company’s 70th anniversary. Air Engineers has been a Trane distributor since the 1940s and is the company’s longest-running independent wholesale distributor. Air Engineers services Alabama and northwest Florida through its main office in Birmingham, Ala., and its two warehouses. 

“Air Engineers is the longest-running Trane independent distributor with continuous family ownership by the Bissell family,” said Paul Adair, independent wholesaler distributor regional manager for Trane. “Their success over the years is a testament to the value they deliver to the marketplace.”

“Trane is an organization driven to be the best by making the best and that parallels Air Engineers’ way of doing business,” said Hal Bissell, president of Air Engineers.

“Our commitment is to provide every dealer with everything they need to be successful, whether it’s great products, a huge inventory, extensive training, or an entire team of professionals eager to help at every turn. We are not the largest independent distributor, but the oldest, and it’s nice to see that Trane views us as an important partner. Over the decades, the two companies have shared some extremely important values; both of us have a passion for innovation and excellence. We’re deeply honored by this recognition.”
