Contractors from Michigan and New Mexico were the December winners of boilermaker Lochinvar’s VIP Contractor contest.

Ron Forman of JP Heating of Northern Michigan won the VIP Installation Showcase, and Rich Duran of Rich Duran Plumbing & Heating in Santa Fe, N.M., had his name picked in the random monthly drawing.

Both will attend Lochinvar’s Nashville Experience in June, which includes a fully paid trip for the winners and guests to a country music festival.

Forman’s contest entry was installation of an 85,000 British thermal unit per hour wall-mounted Knight heating boiler. It earned the highest number of online votes.

“We pride ourselves on offering clean, simple installations to our clients,” Forman said. “It’s an honor to be recognized by my peers as well as Lochinvar for this job.”

Duran’s product registration card was selected at random, and the New Mexico company owner said he is looking forward to the festival.

“I’m really excited that I have the opportunity to visit the Lochinvar headquarters and enjoy a weekend in Nashville with the rest of the winners this summer,” he said.
