Nordyne and WinWholesale recently introduced the NuTone Heating and Cooling products line for the HVAC market.

The NuTone products will be available through Noland Co. branches and participating WinAir distributors. Noland Co. is a wholly owned subsidiary of WinWholesale.

“This partnership is very exciting for WinWholesale and Noland because it provides high-quality HVAC equipment to customers from a leading manufacturer and a leading wholesale distributor,” said Rick Schwartz, president and CEO of WinWholesale.

Noland will no longer carry its current line of HVAC products and will immediately offer NuTone premium comfort products. Noland plans to hold a meeting in early 2008 to roll out the complete product strategy. Regional rollouts for Noland took place in December.

Noland will also carry Nordyne-made Gibson heating and cooling products for new construction and Mammoth products for light-commercial customers.

“We are thrilled about this partnership. We share common goals such as creating profitable growth opportunities, and supporting independent distribution. Having parallel strategies really makes this a win-win situation,” says Doug Jones, vice president of marketing and sales for Nordyne.

The NuTone product line will include a full line of energy-efficient products, including the iQ Drive air-conditioning system. NuTone products come with a limited 10-year warranty, and 10-year quality pledge. The NuTone Quality Pledge states that if a compressor or heat exchanger fails within the first 10 years of operation, it will be replaced with a new NuTone unit.

“We are committed to providing our customers the best service delivery including dependable expertise as well as breadth and depth of available products. Offering NuTone heating and cooling products reinforces this commitment,” said Jean Preston, chief operating officer for Noland Co.

Nordyne CEO and President Dave LaGrand said he views WinWholesale and Noland as ideal distribution partners for Nordyne.
“We are extremely impressed with their people and capabilities and know they will do a terrific job in marketing the exciting line of NuTone heating and cooling products,” he said. “There is a tremendous amount of consistency between WinWholesale’s goals and our goals, and I believe we share the same competitive and enterprising spirit that will help to ensure our mutual success.”
