CHICAGO, Ill. – Representatives from Seresco USA Inc. presented manufacturer’s representative Havtech, Columbia, Maryland, with its 2017 Rep of the Year award at the AHR Expo on Jan. 23.
Seresco also gave Quota Buster awards to 11 manufacturer’s rep firms that helped Seresco record a 34 percent increase over 2016. Quota busters were: Kilmer Environmental, Mississauga, Ontario; Qualite Air Totale Inc., Laval, Quebec; Gardiner, Solon, Ohio; Hahn-Mason Air Systems Inc., Charlotte, North Carolina; Midwest Mechanical Solutions, Golden Valley, Minnesota; ThermalNetics, Auburn Hills, Michigan; Marsh Specialty HVAC, Black Diamond, Alberta; Hobbs and Associates, Virginia Beach, Virginia; Texas AirSystems, Dallas; The Master Group, Boucherville, Quebec and McQueeny Group, Overland Park, Kansas.
Havtech recorded a 384 percent sales increase in its Washington D.C. and Baltimore area territories over last year—a near-record for the 14-year-old annual event. CEO Norm Long attributes the firm’s success last year to several projects including the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia, Fairfax, Virginia. The JCC renovated its facility into a cutting-edge aquatic area that included a 20 ton Seresco NP-Series Protocol dehumidifier that environmentally uses up to 75 percent less refrigerant than conventional mechanical models. Another project was a group of natatoriums for the Maryland National Capital Parks and Planning Commission, Riverdale, Maryland, which used seven NP-Series dehumidification units ranging from 20 to 50 tons on three aquatic facility retrofits.
Another Havtech project, the new $20-million, 435,000-square-foot St. James Sports and Wellness Center, Springfield, Virginia, is using three 64 ton NP-Series dehumidifiers for its natatorium that offers a 52 meter Olympic-sized indoor pool and other aquatic features.
