CRANSTON, R.I. - Taco Inc. recently received a "Vendor of the Year" award from national HVAC wholesaler Sid Harvey's.
Sid Harvey, CEO, John
Rynecki, senior vice president of sales and marketing, and Rich Carbonaro, VP

Presentation of the award coincided with Sid Harvey's annual
sales management conference, training sessions, and a factory tour hosted by
Taco's Ken Anderson, VP, Northeast regional sales, residential.
"As always, we were very nicely surprised with our

experience a good one, and the facilities are amazing," said Rynecki.
"We had one of the best sales management conferences, ever. The level of support was over the
