O'FALLON, Mo. - Nordyne Inc. was recently recognized by Copeland Corp. for manufacturing "exceptionally high quality HVAC products" using Copeland compressors. Nordyne said its products achieve compressor failure rates 35 percent lower than the industry average.

"Nordyne-manufactured HVAC products have a reputation for reliability," Barbour said. "We at Copeland are pleased to recognize Nordyne for an impressive track record of outstanding compressor reliability results."

"We're proud to receive this award from Copeland," said LaGrand. "We're committed to using proven technology and quality products, such as Copeland compressors, in our manufacturing processes. As a result, we can provide our customers with the best warranties in the industry."

Nordyne's vice president of engineering, Allan Reifel, added, "We're pleased that Copeland has again recognized us for having the lowest compressor failure rate than any other HVAC manufacturer."
