Hiller earns industry recognition

Ruud has named Nashville-based Hiller Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical its top contractor for 2013.

Each year Ruud—part of the Rheem family of HVAC products and one of North America’s largest manufacturers of cooling and water heating products — recognizes 10 contractors across the nation. Hiller received the highest recognition because of its work in sales and customer support, according to a release.

“Being named a Ruud Reliable Top Contractor is an honor that I am proud to share with every member of my team,” Jimmy Hiller, president of Hiller, said in the release. “Our dedication to providing our customers with the best products and service possible is what led us to partner with Ruud in the first place. To be recognized for that dedication means we’re delivering not just on our commitment to our partners — but also to our customers.”

Hiller partnered with Comfort Supply and Kenny Pipe & Supply in 2012 to create an in-house supply house for various Hiller locations. Comfort Supply supplies the Ruud HVAC products and Kenny Pipe & Supply supplies the plumbing products. The partnership, referred to as KPACS, allows Hiller to provide its technicians and installers with the HVAC and plumbing supplies and equipment they need on a daily basis.

“Because of the great work Hiller does and the large number of homeowners they serve throughout Tennessee, it made sense for us to create the KPACS partnership,” said Clay Blevins, president of Comfort Supply.
