Diamond Contractor News: Texas Contractor Named 2014 Residential HVAC Contractor of the Year

March 18_Contracting Business Awards Diamond Contractor ImageWhen our distributors and contractors succeed, we succeed, which is why we couldn’t be happier to congratulate one of our Diamond Contractors, Advent Air Conditioning, Lewisville, Texas, for recently being named the 2014 Residential HVAC Contractor of the Year by Contracting Business.

Each year, the publication awards the coveted designation to a company who has gone above and beyond in performance and achieved notable success through “planning, innovating and serving.”

An example of sheer endurance and initiative, Advent Air Conditioning is undoubtedly the rightful recipient of this award. Founder Mike Douglas started the company in 1981 out of a rented 1,400-square-foot office, and worked seven days a week to get the business off the ground. Since Day 1, Douglas has operated on principles of quality, honesty and integrity – some of our core principles as well – which helped him bring his company out of the economic crash of 2009 into one that reached $10 million in sales and increased its customers by 10 percent in 2013.
