A Nashville, Tenn., company has been picked as the No. 1 Ruud Reliable Contractor of 2013.

The winner was Hiller Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical.

“Being named a Ruud Reliable Top Contractor is an honor that I am proud to share with every member of my team,” said Hiller President Jimmy Hiller. “Our dedication to providing our customers with the best products and service possible is what led us to partner with Ruud in the first place. To be recognized for that dedication means we’re delivering not just on our commitment to our partners — but also to our customers.”

Hiller worked with Comfort Supply and Kenny Pipe & Supply to create its own supply operation for Hiller locations. Comfort Supply provides Ruud HVAC products and Kenny Pipe sells the plumbing products. The partnership is known as KPACS.

“Because of the great work Hiller does and the large number of homeowners they serve throughout Tennessee, it made sense for us to create the KPACS partnership,” said Clay Blevins, president of Comfort Supply. “The partnership helps Hiller improve its productivity and allows the company to get its customers the Ruud parts and equipment that they need — quickly. We’re proud to congratulate Hiller on this huge recognition, and we look forward to continue providing the company with the reliable Ruud brand for many years to come.”

Picking Hiller for the top contractor honor was easy, according to Nitish Singh, Rheem corporate director of product management.

“All of our Ruud Reliable top contractors are good at what they do, but it goes without saying that the number one spot on the top 10 list represents the best of the best,” Singh said. “We’re impressed by Hiller’s growth, the quality of service the company provides, and its overall performance. We’re pleased to name them a Ruud Reliable Top Contractor for 2013.”
