GARDEN CITY, N.Y. - Sid Harvey Industries Inc. announced that it has acquired the assets of Danzer, an HVAC distributor based in S. Charleston, W.V.

Danzer was established in 1965 and serves both the commercial and residential markets supplying products such as Heil heating and cooling equipment, Hart & Cooley registers and grilles, Owens Corning ductboard, wrap, and liner, Lukjan sheet metal products, Skuttle humidifiers, and Duro-Dyne sheet metal hardware.

With the acquisition, Sid Harvey's adds four branches covering the trading areas of West Virginia, eastern Kentucky, Ohio, and southwest Pennsylvania:

  • S. Charleston: 301 B St. and 3rd Ave., WV 25303; 304-744-5386;

  • Huntington: 105 13th St. W., WV 25704; 304-522-0671;

  • Morgantown: 110 Dunkard Ave., WV 26501; 304-562-6000;

    The staff of each branch will remain intact as they make the change over to Sid Harvey's. In the S. Charleston branch, longtime Danzer general manager Joe Vealey will assume the position of regional sales manager. He is joined by Danny Sowards, the assistant regional sales manager and John Sowards, the S. Charleston branch manager. The other branches are managed by Keith Adams in Huntington, Scott Rose in Hurricane, and Joseph Miker in Morgantown.

    "Danzer represents a prime opportunity for Sid Harvey's to extend our presence into a new area. Danzer has always had an excellent reputation among contractors in this region and we are confident that the additional products and services that Sid Harvey's brings into the mix can only strengthen these branches. This is a natural fit for our company and meets our strategic goal of expansion and growth into new markets," stated John Rynecki, senior vice president of sales and marketing.
