International Comfort Products honored one of its Midwest distributors.

Detroit-based Carr Supply was recognized as the Tempstar brand Distributor of the Year for its growth in sales over the previous year.

Despite calling Detroit being one of the most challenging markets for the company, the distributor still managed to grow its business by more than 41 percent, according to ICP regional business manager Mick Mud.

Charlie Piranian, general manager of North American sales at ICP, says the leading distributors have common traits.

 “ICP’s top distributors share one important characteristic,” he said. “They rely on quality customer service to attract new dealers and help existing dealers to grow and succeed.”
