Recognizing excellence in the HVACR industry, Rheem has partnered with the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors—National Association (PHCC) to sponsor the association’s 2018 HVAC Contractor of the Year Award. Rheem is proud to support this prestigious award, presented at PHCC’s annual CONNECT Conference and Product & Technology Showcase.

This year, PHCC and Rheem will team to honor the HVACR contractor who best represents the ideals of the profession. Nominees are judged on professionalism, merchandising and management skills, innovative techniques, trade involvement and community service. The application deadline is July 31.

“We greatly value Rheem’s support of this award and of PHCC’s strategic goals,” PHCC President Laurie Crigler said.

In addition to this sponsorship, Rheem will be showcasing its HVAC line of products at CONNECT this year, “helping us to better serve members in both the plumbing and HVACR markets,” Crigler added.

"We are proud to be part of programs that recognize the hard work contractors do day in and day out," said Mike Branson, executive vice president and general manager, Rheem Air Division. "Rewarding excellence and innovation are especially important to us and we are excited to collaborate with PHCC on a program that highlights the best practices of our industry’s top contractors.”
