BEDFORD, Mass. - HVAC and plumbing distributor F.W. Webb will provide York products throughout eastern New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut.

The distributor recently signed an agreement with Johnson Controls to sell York brand residential and light- commercial HVAC equipment. According to Johnson Controls, the agreement allows the company to expand its distribution of York products from five locations throughout New England to more than 70 locations in the Northeast.

"This agreement makes sense on many levels," said Jeffrey Pope, president of F.W. Webb. "Johnson Controls is a long-term, valued supplier to F.W. Webb, and its December 2005 acquisition of York provided the opportunity to offer an expanded range of products and programs. Also, F.W. Webb will be able to continue its commitment and growth in the HVAC segment by offering high-quality York-brand residential and light commercial equipment. York is one of the top HVAC equipment lines in the industry, and has grown significantly in recent years."
