NASHVILLE — Hiller Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical (Hiller), a provider of residential and commercial plumbing, HVAC, and electrical service and repair, was included among Ruud’s “Top Market Maker” winners and was honored as the number one Top Ruud ProPartner for 2021. This award follows Hiller’s six first-place recognitions among Ruud’s list of Most Reliable Contractors. 

The Ruud Market Makers award recognizes exceptional U.S.-based contracting businesses for sales, customer support, and overall service excellence. Through their strong vendor relationships with Ferguson Enterprises (Nashville) and Coburn Supply (Memphis), Hiller was ranked among the Top 10 “Market Makers” for 2021.

Above this honor, Hiller was named Ruud’s “Most Valuable Player," recognizing their “overall stellar performance” as the #1 Top Ruud ProPartner of 2021. The company was honored via email announcement in February, then via live announcement at the 2022 International ProPartner Conference at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, on March 7 and 8, 2022. CEO Jimmy Hiller and COO Jimmy Hiller, Jr. accepted the award in person at the event. 

“We couldn’t be more grateful to receive the MVP recognition from Ruud this year," remarked Jimmy Hiller, founder and CEO of Hiller. “In partnership with our wonderful distributors, we are able to provide Ruud’s exceptional equipment to so many families across the southeast. Ruud’s commitment to installation and maintenance excellence parallels our own high quality and service standards, so we are exceptionally thankful for this award.”

Launched in 1990 with a single employee and just $500, Hiller was founded on the tenets of professionalism, customer satisfaction, and a dedication to high quality work. As a result, Hiller has grown exponentially, operating across 15 locations in 7 states with a fleet of over 500 trucks.
