The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors—National Association (PHCC) announces that Rheem, a recognized innovator of heating and cooling technologies, is a new HVAC Corporate Partner.
“This partnership is in line with the association’s strategic plan goal to be a valuable and equally recognizable resource for HVAC professionals just as it is for plumbers,” said PHCC President Ken Nielsen, AccuAire Inc., Reading, Massachusetts.
“As an HVAC contractor, I’ve been involved with Rheem for many years and am very pleased with their commitment to our association, as evidenced by their decision to provide this high level of support,” Nielsen adds.
Rheem’s commitment to PHCC has included participation in the annual CONNECT conference, sponsor of HVAC Contractor of the Year, and member of the PHCC Educational Foundation Board of Governors.
