Rheem finished first place in a recent reader survey conducted by Home Builder Executive magazine. The survey sought to assess “builders’ partnership” levels with key vendors in various major product categories, including tankless water heaters.

Participants in the survey were purchasing executives for regional home builders. Each participant was asked which supplier brands they currently use in their homes.

In the tankless water heaters category, 43 percent of the respondents indicated Rheem, with the nearest competitor attracting 34 percent.

“Rheem is very pleased with the first-place finish,” said Bob Hitchner, director of Rheem tankless sales. “Our showing is a testament to the continuing strength of the Rheem brand among leading builders across the United States, and to the work of our sales and marketing team on behalf of the rapidly emerging tankless category. All of us are working hard to boost not only our position among builders, but also their overall demand for tankless products.”
