BELOIT, Wis. — Regal Beloit Corporation announced it has launched the Browning Authorized Contractor Program.

Regal’s Browning Authorized Contractor Program bridges the gaps among customers, contractors, and wholesalers by giving customers and wholesalers access to contractors who are highly trained on Browning belts and systems. Contractors work with Browning wholesalers to connect to new customers, expand business with current customers through new revenue opportunities, and help customers to save money and energy by retrofitting existing systems.

“When a customer needs a contractor for a project, frequently the contractors they are working with are overloaded with business and are strapped for time,” said Melinda Doty, product manager, components at Regal. “We are trying to bridge the gap between the product and the need for service by providing a complete solution to the customer. It provides additional peace of mind for customers to view the contractor locator on Regal’s website or via the Toolbox Technician app to find a contractor for their project — a contractor that has been vetted, interviewed, and trained on our products. This provides the complete package for the end user and offers additional earning opportunities for the contractors.”

This program provides tools to support the contractor. Browning-authorized contractors will be provided with items such as patches, window clings, and truck magnets to indicate that they’re part of the program. Additionally, the Browning Toolbox Technician app delivers a toolset for all HVAC contractors and maintenance personnel. This includes calculation and conversion tools, a GPS-enabled distributor locator, plus informative reference, installation, and troubleshooting guides for everything from bearings to V-belts.
