Howell’s Heating & AC of Ashland, Va., looked to MKT Metal Manufacturing when it came time to supply gasketed spiral duct for a Whole Foods in Virginia Beach, Va.

The owners and designers of the grocery store project were looking for a clean profile for the duct run. They also insisted on a sealed, flangeless spiral system.

With the project on fast track, Howell’s turned to MKT Metal Manufacturing Inc. in York, Pa., to meet the time constraints. MKT was able to estimate, manufacture and ship SpirAmir gasketed spiral duct.

“MKT came through on a tight schedule. Their SPIRAmir spiral met our customer’s requirements for a ‘non-flanged’ system. We knew it would be a challenge at a 40-inch diameter, but MKT prepared our guys in the field and it went together without a hitch,” said Nathan Luke, project manager for Howell’s. “It was refreshing to deal with MKT at every level. Unlike other suppliers we had great communication with all aspect of their service: estimating, production and shipping.”
