hilmor was recognized for excellence in product design in the 10th annual Dealer Design awards program sponsored by The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News (The ACHR News), a leading trade magazine in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration industries.
The Electronic Gauge with Vacuum Sensor won a gold award in the Electronic Tools category, and the Compact Swage Tool won a silver award in the Hand Tools category. These tools were part of the extensive new line of HVAC/R products launched by hilmor in January 2013.
An independent panel of contractors judged the 122 entries based on a number of criteria, including product application, competitive differences and ease of installation, maintenance and service. Winning entries in the Dealer Design Awards are featured in the July 22, 2013, issue of The ACHR News.
“These awards give us a unique opportunity to recognize the outstanding research and development efforts that go into many of the products serving the HVAC/R industry, and the awards issue gives our readers an opportunity to read about innovative installation and service solutions,” says Mike Murphy, publisher, The ACHR News.
“It’s incredibly rewarding for hilmor to be honored by the leaders in the HVAC/R industry during our first year in the marketplace,” says Andrea Halpin, senior marketing manager.
