Ferguson’s Ohio HVACR division was recently recognized among eight distinguished Trane distributors honored with the company’s Pacesetter Award for outstanding business performance in 2009. The award is presented to Trane’s top-performing sales channels, including both Dealer Sales Offices (DSO) and Independent Wholesale Distributors (IWD).

Ferguson’s Ohio HVACR division was presented with the Pacesetter Award for its respective IWD sales channel grouping based on market share and size. Weighted metrics around performance are used to determine the winners in each group.

Ferguson is one of the leading heating, ventilation and air conditioning supply houses in Northern Ohio and Southern Michigan, a position they have achieved after only 4 years in those markets. The company’s advanced distribution network and best-in-class technology gives it the strategic advantage for providing a uniformly high level of service across such a broad geographic area.

“Pacesetter Award winners share a common theme of doing an outstanding job of communicating the value and benefits of Trane to dealers and in turn, their customers,” says Kevin Carlile, vice president Trane Sales, Residential Solutions. “In addition to increasing their sales and market share, Pacesetter winners also excel in every aspect of their business. The Ferguson team is composed of truly top performers and they’re very deserving of this honor and recognition.” The Pacesetter Award was presented at Trane’s annual awards event on March 2 and 3 at the Ritz-Carlton in Dallas.
