Taco President John White Jr. talks about the changing business environment and Taco philosophies.
ORLANDO, Fla. - John White Jr. took a moment during his company's press conference at the 2005 AHR Expo to thank attendees for their media support. The president of Taco Hydronic Systems, Cranston, R.I, joked, "When I started these press conferences, there were 10 of us and three of you!"

White said he was amazed by the secrecy about business practices maintained by many HVACR companies, stating that he believes it is best for him to open up his company to employees and the world. "We want to make Taco the easiest company to do business with," he said.

White listed the philosophies he believes Taco strives to live up to: profitability and stability for employees, suppliers, customers, and the community. At the conclusion of his summation, he noted, "We are totally focused on moving into the green movement."

The audience was also given a demonstration of Taco's Design Suite, a systems analysis tool. Design Suite was developed to help engineers select hydronic systems with the lowest operating costs, based on monthly figures.
