Functional Devices Inc. recognized Meier Supply Co. for growth in 2008 with its Distributor of the Year award.

Functional Devices is a vendor to the Controls Group of North America and supplier of the RIB Relay-In-A-Box product line.

According to Meier Supply, the award is given to a CGNA member company whose efforts the previous calendar year to promote RIB products went beyond expectations.

“In 2008, Meier Supply Co. had unprecedented growth of 212 percent over 2007,” said Angie Jarvis, strategic accounts manager for Functional Devices Inc. “Obviously, in any economy that is tremendous growth, but it was even more noteworthy when considering how the U.S. economy in general went down in 2008. Meier has been a strong supporter of RIB products through the years, and we were extremely pleased to be able to give them our award this year.”

Meier Supply Co. Inc. is a wholesale distributor of HVAC and refrigeration products with more than 100 employees and 17 locations in New York and Pennsylvania.
