INDIANAPOLIS - Bryant Heating & Cooling Systems has honored 15 Bryant® Factory Authorized Dealers in the United States and Canada with the 2010 Medal of Excellence.

“For more than 100 years, Bryant has 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 winners have been able to achieve extraordinary service levels while significantly growing their businesses.”

Medal of Excellence applicants are judged on overall Bryant-branded product sales growth, high-efficiency and IAQ equipment sales growth, customer satisfaction and participation in various dealer programs and promotions, as well as a self-assessment.
