American Standard rewards ‘Stars and Stripes' winners
TYLER, Texas - American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning said its 2003 "Stars and Stripes" dealer and distributor sales-incentive program generated 60,000 program entries.
The program rewarded dealers with cash for each qualifying high-efficiency residential or light-commercial product sold from March 1 through Aug. 31, 2003.
Each qualifying product sale also earned one entry for a random drawing.
Jim Ferrell, owner of Ferrell Heating & Air, was recognized as the grand-prize-drawing winner, taking home a Ford F-150 Super Cab pickup truck. Ferrell's company, based in Tahlequah, Okla., is supplied by Aces A/C Supply, an American Standard Heating and Air Conditioning independent distributor who covers the northern part of Texas and Oklahoma.
