HARDI Releases New Highly Evaluated Proven Partner Program

August 19, 2020

Heating, Air-conditioning & Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) is pleased to announce the launch of a new Board of Directors approved Proven Partner Program for HVACR Wholesalers.

The new program provides a collection of service vendor members who focus extensively on HVACR wholesale distributors. It is designed specifically to save wholesale members time, instead of searching through vendors who don’t understand or fit distributor’s needs. This program provides high quality, highly evaluated vendors, backed by other HARDI members.

“We found that many of our members were spending too many hours making phone calls, sending emails, and setting up meetings just to find vendors that overlook the HVACR industry and lack knowledge and understanding of wholesale distribution” said HARDI Account Manager, Brandin Bursa. “We wanted to provide a program that offers trusted solutions, approved not only by HARDI management but HARDI members who have used their services as well.”

The service vendors who have been approved for this program have submitted multiple member references, provided case studies, and endured numerous phone conversations with HARDI management to ensure they are qualified for HARDI members.

The Proven Partner Program offers a wide variety of business needs ranging from technology to logistics, from promotion to processing. HARDI is dedicated to bringing distributor members top quality choices that their peers have tested, approved, and vouched for.
