West Chester, Penn.-based American Air Distributing has signed an agreement with Johnson Controls to become a distributor of its Luxaire and Coleman brand products.

“Innovation and product leadership became two of the major reasons we made this transition,” said Bob Frank, president and a 30-year veteran of the HVACR industry.

“The industry is rapidly changing. As a distributor, it’s important to recognize which manufacturers offer products for the future,” Frank added.  “When we looked at all the innovations the Luxaire and Coleman brands offer and the weight and influence that Johnson Controls bring to promoting those brands, it was clear that we found a manufacturer with a vision that exceeded our expectations.”

Gary Mummert, regional sales manager for Johnson Controls, said that the wholesaler would be a good fit for the manufacturer.

 “American Air enjoys a great reputation for customer service and we are proud to welcome them into our family of distribution,” he said. “Their business model complements our market share growth and customer service initiatives. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship together.”

American Air serves contractors in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland, serving 33 counties and covering a radius of more than 100 miles.
