ST. LOUIS — Nortek Global HVAC (NGH) has named Winston Water Cooler, Lubbock, Texas, and Winsupply of Rio Grande Valley, Mission, Texas, as HVAC wholesale distributors of its residential unitary equipment brands.
“We definitely have an expanded focus on the state of Texas, and these new distributors illustrate our concentration into areas where our brands didn’t previously have a presence,” said Rob Hawk, national director strategic accounts, NGH.
“We saw that larger distributors were no longer attending to what contractors need in the form of personal relationships and customer service,” said Winston Water Cooler Managing Partner Keith Craddick. “When we saw one of the premier unitary equipment brands (Maytag) available for distribution in Lubbock, we jumped at the chance.”
“We’re concentrating on residential equipment, parts and supplies now, but eventually we’d like to add Nortek’s light commercial brands too,” said Ernie Pena III, Winsupply of Rio Grande Valley president. “Building a brand from the ground on up in the Rio Grande Valley is exciting for us.”
