ARLINGTON, Va. — The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) has named Haller Enterprises, Lititz, Pa., as its 2014 Commercial Contractor of the Year.

“Again this year we had a number of innovative commercial contractors apply for this award,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president and CEO. “Our judges always have an extremely tough decision to make when they pick the recipient of this award. This year’s winner, Haller Enterprises, illustrates the characteristics that all of the best commercial contractors in the country have in common.”

Haller Enterprises will be presented the Commercial Contractor of the Year award on March 19 at the ACCA 2014 conference in Nashville, Tennessee.
