LAS VEGAS — Fresh-Aire UV®, a manufacturer of UVC and PCO/carbon indoor air quality (IAQ) products in North America, recently named Southwestern HVAC Sales LLC, located in Smithville, Texas, as its “2016 Rep of the Year" at the 2017 AHR Expo in Las Vegas.

The five-year-old manufacturer’s representative grew its Fresh-Aire UV sales by 42-percent in 2016 by developing a four-point sales contractor training program consisting of monthly two-hour sessions. The program, which was provided to more than 50 contractors, consisted of a product introduction; technical training and sales; product sales and marketing training; and culminated with salesmanship coaching. It was the firm's second Rep of the Year award from Fresh-Aire UV after winning in 2012.

Southwestern HVAC Sales, which covers the Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Arkansas territories, also converted dozens of contractors to Fresh-Aire UV products. 

"They spot competition deficiencies and educate those contractors as to the superiority of Fresh-Aire UV technology," said Sean Moseley, national sales manager, Fresh-Aire UV.  "Plus, they always present our technology in a factual, truthful and knowledgeable manner."
