Honeywell has named 16 companies as 2010 Diamond Distributors.

“The Diamond Distributor program formally recognizes Honeywell distributors for business growth and continued investment in their customers via the industry’s best commercial products and programs,” said Dave Molin, general manager for Honeywell Building Control Systems. “Our Diamond partners are driving advanced technologies and differentiating their companies in the commercial marketplace.”

The 2010 Diamond Distributors include: Broudy Precision Equipment in West Conshohocken, Pa.; Carolina Controls Depot in Fuquay-Varina, N.C.; Cochrane Supply & Engineering in Madison Heights, Mich.; Control Consultants in Weymouth, Mass.; Control Depot Inc. in Omaha, Neb.; Control Products Distributors Inc. of Houston; Controlco in Oakland, Calif.; Ener-Tech Industries in Nashville, Tenn.; M&M Controls in Timonium, Md.; MI Controls Inc. of Seattle; Quality Controls in Birmingham, Ala.; Stromquist & Co. in Smyrna, Ga.; Temperature Control  Systems in Dallas; United Refrigeration in Elmsford, N.Y.; Universal Supply Group Inc. in Hawthorne, N.J.; and Yorkland Controls Ltd. in Downsview, Ontario.

Diamond Distributors receive incentives from Honeywell, including additional market development funds, complimentary attendance at Honeywell’s annual Diamond Distributor conference and eligibility for Honeywell’s talent-development program.

To qualify for the program, a Honeywell dealer must reach a minimum volume of product purchases from Honeywell in the previous calendar year, and earn a scorecard result that measures both business results and market behaviors.

“Honeywell continues to invest in and recognize our top distributors, and this program is designed to enable our partners’ growth and profitability,” added Molin.
