HARDI is exploring the latest "TRENDS."

The Heating, Airconditioning and Refrigeration Distributors International is exploring the latest “TRENDS” in a new series of quarterly economic industry forecasts.

Prepared by Alan Beaulieu of the New Hampshire-based Institute for Trends Research, the Targeted and Regional Economic News for Distribution Strategies reports, aka TRENDS, will include detailed state-specific industry information.

The first two reports are currently available to anyone at www.hardinet.org. But future reports will be for members only, officials said.

Supplier and service vendor HARDI members can receive complete reports or just executive summaries.

“The timing is perfect for this new management tool to help our members get in front of changes in their local economies rather than trying to play catch-up,” said Donald Frendberg, HARDI’s executive vice president. “There is currently no central source for this type of HVACR-focused information, especially anything that is broken down to the state level. Our members don’t have the time to research all of this data but can now easily identify the best leading indicators for their businesses.”
